And then there was one... Tipton

Six more area teams took a tumble in the second weekend of the playoffs leaving Southwest Oklahoma with a Lone Ranger, Tipton.

Tipton (11-1) blitzed Regent Prep for a 106-58 victory and will now play Timberlake in the Class C semifinals on Friday as the Tigers look to defend their title.

Apache, Carnegie and Lawton High fell to potential state champions over the weekend, but an area trio consisting of Altus, Cyril and Snyder, weren't covered as they played far away from home.

Although their seasons ended sooner than desired, there is still plenty to applaud. Let's dig in.

Altus seniors historically great

In eighth grade, the 19 Altus seniors won just one game. After a 20-7 loss to Skiatook in the 5A quarterfinals on Friday night, the group leaves Altus football with a state championship, three straight playoff appearances, and a 31-5 record in a three-year span.

The 19 seniors  including the coach's son, quarterback Jake Vargas  will be dearly missed, but many have attracted offers to play college football at various schools.

"They are just a part of a legacy that we are continuing to build and sustain here at Altus," Altus coach Todd Vargas said.
