CLASS 6A CHAMPIONSHIP: Jenks gets Lucky No. 13

STILLWATER — Coach Wade Standley rushed down the sideline, away from a throng of supporters and reporters who wanted a minute of his time. He stopped 20 yards downfield, where he found quarterback Peyton Gavras and a number of his teammates.

There, with confetti flying and trophies being passed around, coach and quarterback embraced.

It was a poignant end to a season that began with a Crosstown Clash victory and ended with a disappointing loss to Jenks in the Class 6A title game.

Along the way, Norman North made history. The Timberwolves advanced to the first state championship in program history. They won a district title and put together more wins than any other North squad. They were the first west-side team to advance to the state championship since 2005.

But the magic ran out on Friday night. Traditional powerhouse Jenks (12-2) scored early and often to run away with the Class 6A title with a 55-20 victory over North (12-2).

Or, perhaps more accurately, it was Jenks running back Trey’Vonne Barr’e who ran away with the championship. Barr’e took over the game on Jenks’ second possession, taking a simple run play down the middle of the field and turning it into an 88-yard game. The play broke open what looked like it might be a defensive struggle and propelled Jenks to a 6-0 lead when Braden Calip ran it in one play later.

That was only the beginning for Barr’e. He went on to gain 270 yards on 16 carries and three touchdowns in the first half alone, with the scores coming on big plays of 35, 53 and 52 yards. He finished the game with 290 yards on 22 carries for an average of more than 13 yards a carry, while sitting most of the second half.

“It’s just a blessing to work with such a good and talented group,” said Jenks coach Allan Trimble, who led the Trojans to their 13th all-time title and first since 2007. “Our offense played well, and the defensive line did a good job getting to their quarterback.”
