No. 2 Catoosa rides winning streak into Jay

CATOOSA — Second-ranked Catoosa has a not so secret weapon it uses to annihilate opponents on the football field. An offensive line averaging 260 pounds per man blasts holes through enemy defenses that allow standout running backs Cole Scheulen and Levi Browning to roam free.

“This is not something that’s happened over night,’’ said Indians coach Aaron Meier as his team prepares for a District 4A-3 trip to Jay Friday night. “They work extremely hard and consistently play lights out. We hang our hats on those guys and we’re as good as they allow us to be. I’m extremely proud of them.’’

Thus far, the O-line has permitted Catoosa to record a 6-0 record overall and 3-0 in district play. Jay stands 3-3 and 2-1 following a 49-0 loss to No. 1 Wagoner last week.

Meier said the Indians plan to stick with their base offense against Jay. Scheulen and Browning, who have combined for almost 2,000 yards rushing, will follow the blocking of their behemoth teammates to break out.

The line consists of Montana Poorboy at right guard, Wyatt Pennington at right tackle, Tim Lewis at center, Dalton Porter at left guard, Dylan Layton at left tackle and Jacob Space and Derek Hughes at tight end.

“They‘ve had an answer for just about everybody,’’ Meier said. “We feel like with those guys up front we can run the ball and establish our running game no matter who we play. They get it done week in and week out and they work extremely hard.’’

Against Jay, the Catoosa defense, led by Browning at middle linebacker, will focus on quarterback Shai Jones. Jones has passed for 662 yards and run for 799, posing a double-threat to the Indians.

“Their quarterback is a very good athlete,’’ Meier said. “They will spread you out and look for him to get out of the pocket and either run or throw.”
