Marlow ready for success

With several key returners at skill positions and added experience, Marlow may be ready for more success than it's seen over the past three years. A district championship isn't entirely out of the question for the Outlaws.

Comanche has a different challenge, as a new head coach ushers the Indians and their six returning starters from Class 2A to Class 3A.


Rob Renshaw knows a fourth-place district finish would mean a third-straight year of facing a district champion in the playoffs.

But Marlow's head coach believes his team's speed and experience, coupled with a revamped district that is less top-heavy, is enough to avoid that sort of a regular-season finish.

Marlow returns dynamic junior quarterback Braeden O'Dell, and the Outlaws (6-5 last year) might be poised to better position themselves for playoff success.  

"Well, we've got to get in first," Renshaw said of earning a postseason berth. "But if we don't finish fourth (in the district), I like our chances. I like our chances if we do finish fourth. I feel we're a better team than last year."
