Defending champion: Davis

After dropping non-district matchups against Sulphur and Heritage Hall in the second and third weeks of the season, the Wolves ran off eight straight wins before losing to eventual state finalist Tulsa Victory Christian, 27-21, in the playoffs.

Returning stars

• Briston Summers, QB-DB, Davis: One of the top offensive players in Class 2A, the senior quarterback rushed for 1,700 yards and 31 touchdowns last season.

• Austin Lambert, QB, Coalgate: A dual threat quarterback, one opposing coach said the 6-1, 190-pound junior signal-caller throws the football like a rocket and is difficult to get on the ground.

• Garrett Voyles, RB, Kingston: Playing quarterback last season, Voyles rushed for 1,802 yards and 22 touchdowns. He moves to running back this year as Tishomingo junior transfer Rylee Holmes takes over at quarterback. Voyles will be Kingston's primary weapon again, running behind a big Redskins' offensive line.

Big Question: Can anyone challenge Davis?

The Wolves were the unanimous choice in the pre-season coaches' poll to win the district again. Davis has six state championships in school history, including back to back titles in 2013 and 2014. The Wolves are expected to be one the top teams in Class 2A this year.
