A long trek south to Grandfield could keep the Paoli Pugs from making a four-hour journey next week to Buffalo — all that’s needed is a win.

Paoli is going to the playoffs next week but a win Friday night in southwest Oklahoma will keep them at home next week. However, a loss and they will be on the road again.

Grandfield has a very potent offense that averages nearly 400 yards per game. Colby Whittington leads the offensive charge having rushed for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Quarterback John Brown came up big last week for the Bearcats. He threw for three touchdowns and rushed for two more in a blowout of Thackerville. He has over 1,300 total yards on the season with 18 total touchdowns.

Brown’s favorite targets are Rodney Robinson and Richie Correa. They have combined for seven touchdowns between them and average over 30 yards per catch.

A stingy defense has led to the Bearcats’ 7-2 record. They give up just over 200 yards per game, 116 of that on the ground. Elliot Leal and Tony Luina led the defensive attack as they both have 87 tackles on the season. Luina also has four picks as does Brown.

The Pugs will need a solid game both offensively and defensively to get a much needed win.

The trenches is where the game will be won or lost as the Pugs and Cats try to establish their running games.
