The Jenks Trojans probably haven’t faced more pressure in a regular-season high school football game in a long time.
A win Friday over visiting Westmoore would see the Trojans into the Class 6A Division I playoffs, extending the state’s second-longest streak of postseason appearances to 31.
But a loss and Norman upset of Edmond Santa would scramble the District 6AI-1 standings and leave the Trojans on the sidelines when the playoffs start next week.
Many teams will be under similar duress on the final Friday of the regular season. Playoff berths and district titles will be decided at dozens of locales around the state.
Cascia Hall already had extended the state’s longest streak of playoff appearances to 33 before ending the regular season at Inola on Thursday night.
But the Commandos and Longhorns were still jockeying for position in District 3A-4, while Verdigris visits Berryhill on Friday to decide first place.
While a Santa Fe win over Norman would help Jenks, Broken Arrow’s Tigers will be hoping for a different result in the Edmond matchup as they visit Enid. A Santa Fe loss and BA win would give the Tigers first place in the highly competitive District 6AI-1.
For your consideration, the Tulsa World has computed playoff possibilities in each of the state’s 44 districts covering all nine classifications.
