Blake Grauer took to the air to ground the Claremore losing streak.

The junior quarterback dominated the fourth quarter Friday night, and at the same time dominated Skiatook.

He threw two of his three touchdown passes in the final nine minutes to lift the Zebras to their first victory of the season, a come-from-behind, 26-11 decision that put an exclamation point on Homecoming festivities.

For his aerial artistry, Grauer is saluted as the Claremore Progress high school football Player of the Week.

He completed 10 of 22 passes for 212 yards. But in the fourth quarter, he hit his last five in a row — two of them for touchdowns to Chris Bottoms — to pull out the Zebras’ first win since October of last year.

His scoring passes covered 40 yards (to Derek Keniston), and 15 and 22 yards.

His second TD pass, at 8:36 of the final period, came on the first play after Grauer was thrown for an eight-yard loss.

In addition to his passing, the 6-0, 180-pound Grauer also gained 23 yards on the ground. He had an 8-yard touchdown run nullified by a penalty.
