MIAMI — Zac Davis of Pond Creek-Hunter was just trying to do what he could for his Green all-star team at the Oklahoma Eight Man Football Coaches Association all-star game Saturday, June 16.
He did that and more: his strip and 50-yard runback early in the second quarter dashed a White all-star drive and gave the Green a 28-8 win.
“I just tried to do what I could for the team,” he said following a 56-8 blowout by the Green at Red Robertson Field.
The win was the second straight for the Green and its eighth in 13 games since a format switch in 2005.
The game has previously used East vs. West and Class B vs. Class C formats.
The 48-point margin of difference also was the most in the Green-White era.
By comparison, last year’s game was a wild win by the Green in a game that saw the teams combine for 93 points.
After scoring its only touchdown of the night, the White picked up some momentum by stopping the Green.
Andrew Lechuga of Tipton hit the middle for 5 yards.
But he was stuffed by the Green defense and Davis stripped the ball before Lechuga was down.
Davis, the defensive MVP for the Green, broke loose spurted free and raced along the east sideline for the score just 69 seconds into the second quarter.
The conversion run was stopped, but the Green was up 28-8 advantage.
“We had him. We stood him up and I stripped the ball from him,” said Brown, who is planning on walking on at Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva.
Camden Cayot, who led Laverne to its third Class B state title in four years, had a 42-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and accounted for two more scores.
He had 59 yards rushing and completed 5 of 9 passes for 75 yards.
“I knew we were going to be good, but our line did a very good job up front,” Cayot said. “It started with the line.”
Boogie Brown of Dewar was the White offensive MVP and David Holmes of Gans received defensive honors.
