  • Lone Grove enjoyed a depth-building exercise on the road, building a 41-0 halftime lead and handing the game over to the reserves in a 54-0 win over Atoka.
    Jeremy Lewis had seven carries for 152 yards and two touchdowns, and Grant Harmon was 7-for-12 for 82 yards, a pick and touchdown to lead the Longhorns, which improved to 4-1, 2-0 on the season.
    "We were able to get our kids a lot of playing time," Lone Grove coach Jeremy Turner said. "I feel like we are improving a lot every week. The kids are understanding the picture of what we are trying to do, and the credit is to the kids."
    O'Shay Harris added a 60-yard punt return for a touchdown, and Terry Rowe had a 30-yard interception return for the Longhorns. There were also a number of other standouts for Lone Grove in the shutout.
    "Dillon Wilson, our noseguard, is really playing hard and doing a good job for us," Turner said. "Rowe is doing a good job, and Nathan Meeks made quite a few tackles."
    The Longhorns will have the opportunity to improve to 3-0 in the district Friday when it hosts Pauls Valley at 7:30 p.m. Turner said the transition back into coaching this year has been made easy by the kids and familiarity with the program.
    "I think the transition was easier than most because I had coached here for so long before," he said. "I didn't coach last year because I went into administration, but I was around the kids. And we have the same offense and the same defense and coaches. The only change was me, and I had only been out for a year. You have to give credit to the kids.
    "When I compare this team to the ones I coached in the past, there is a difference. I think these kids don't have any preconceived notions of where they should be in district or where they should be compared to any other teams. They just show up and work hard."
