5-0, 0-5 or 3-2 - however you want to slice it up, half of the Oklahoma high school football season is already over. That leaves us just five more weeks to decide who is going to play in the "second season" or who is going to start basketball season. It is way too early to make heads or tails out of District 4A-1. Cache sets atop of the standings with a 2-0 record, while the next six teams all have 1-1 records with a lot more football to play. This is the time of year that you want to start stringing victories together to make sure that you sit in the top four of the standings when the dust settles. Your hopes this time of year are to stay healthy, win and make sure the win is by at least 15 points to keep tallying those important District points. Speaking of basketball, teams were able to take the court to begin preparing for the upcoming season as of Oct. 1. One thing that always has amazed me with high school sports is how a good or great fall sport season builds momentum for the whole year. Have a football team or a softball team go on a roll and then the basketball team or the wrestling builds on that and transfers the momentum to the spring sports. Pro football is in full swing and it looks as if the New England Patriots or the Kansas City Chiefs may be the teams to beat in the AFC. The NFC seems to not have any teams trying to separate themselves but the Saints and the Packers both stand at 4-1 after five weeks. The new-look Oklahoma City Thunder took to the court on Tuesday, Oct. 8, for their first preseason contest. OKC will play four preseason games before opening on the road against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, Oct. 23. When they tip-off this year, it will be the first season that the Thunder have not had Russell Westbrook on their roster. It will be interesting to say the least.
