Nothing wrong with chalk

Chalk is said to be boring when it comes to brackets, but in the case of the Class C playoffs this year, chalk is everything you want as a fan   and then some.

Chalk reigned supreme in the Class C bracket, and as a result, we are left with a gem.

Southwest Oklahoma's Lone Ranger, No. 2 Tipton (12-1), meets No. 1 Pond Creek-Hunter (13-0) in the Class C state championship game this Friday at 7 p.m. at Southwest Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

"We've had the opportunity to go back-to-back a few times because we've won quite a few so we're locked in mentally to get it done," Tipton coach Travis White said. "It's a huge win so we're going to appreciate it, put in the work in preparation and see what happens next week."

What do you know? Tipton is back at the same neutral site location as last Friday when the Tigers both literally and figuratively ran over the competition with 449 rushing yards in their 56-8 semifinal thrashing of Timberlake.

Following his three touchdown performance, Tipton running back Dillon Schmidt called the SWOSU atmosphere in Weatherford a "home away from home" for the Tigers.

Upon returning to Weatherford this Friday, that's heartwarming news for Tipton as it enters its sixth state championship game in the last seven years, an admirable feat for any football team.
