Lewis levels Deer Creek

Irish quarterback accounts for all 8 TDs in victory over Antlers

EDMOND — At the start of the contest, McGuinness quarterback Jacob Lewis ran the ball on the Irish’s initial three plays.

After he scored the first three touchdowns for McGuinness, it was apparent why.

Lewis just plowed through the Antler defense, amassing 390 yards rushing on 25 carries (15.6 average) and accounted for all eight of the Irish’s TDs with seven on the ground and one through the air.

When Lewis’ shoes had worn out, McGuinness left Deer Creek High School Friday night with a comfortable 56-21 triumph and latched down the No. 3 seed in the district. The Irish will play at Ardmore and No. 4 seed Deer Creek will play at Lawton MacArthur in the opening round of the playoffs next week.

Lewis scored on his third touch of the game, using power and speed to gash the Antlers for a 67-yard score. He tacked on 70 and 33-yard touchdown runs in the first stanza for a 21-7 cushion moving into the second.

Deer Creek stayed in the game in the first when Brock Ruminer opened his right shoulder to the inside and scraped a 21-yard Caden Sander pass cleanly while diving to the turf in the end zone. Ruminer also scored on an option pitch going left from Sander with 2:55 remaining in the third period and finished with 73 yards rushing on 14 carries.

Teamwise, McGuinness outgained the Antlers on the ground, 560-144.

At the start of the second, Deer Creek wide receiver Noah McGraw nabbed a reception from Sander, turned around and quickly scooted 64 yards before getting stopped at the Irish one-yard line.

The Antlers could have cut it to 21-14, but lost a fumble at the three on the ensuing play.

Lewis then took it in from 66 and two yards away as the Irish led 35-14 at the half.

Sander used a second-effort run from a yard out for Deer Creek’s second score that was set up by Ruminer’s 18-yard reception followed by his 13-yard run to the McGuinness two.

In the third, Lewis rumbled 49 yards for a TD, hit Carl West with a 48-yard scoring pass and and hit pay dirt on a six-yard run to account for the 56-21 final.

Sander ran for 55 yards and chunked 365 through the air on 23-of-39 passing.

McGraw caught three passes for 100 yards — one an outstretched grab that went 27 yards to the three-yard line to set up Ruminer’s three-yard TD run — on just three catches followed by teammates Cole Verble (7-97) and Ruminer (4-60).

On defense for the Antlers, Matt Hart got a minus-2 sack on Lewis and teammate Brandon Kidd recorded a tackle for a loss of a yard.

In the third quarter, Deer Creek’s Bryson Bowers stripped an Irish ball carrier and Eli Hooks recovered on the Antler 16 to prevent a McGuinness score. Fellow Antler Morgan McFerron also had a fumble recovery in the quarter.

    You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone as Edmond as Byron Graham.
    He was born in 1947 at St. Anthony’s and was soon brought home to his house on Eighth Street. He never left, except for a stint to go to college at Oklahoma State and upon graduation, he landed right back teaching in the Edmond school district.
    Monday, Graham, a longtime educator and coach in Edmond, received a call informing him that he had been selected for the Oklahoma Coaches Association’s Hall of Fame. He will be inducted formally at 6:30 p.m. July 27 in the Southern Hills Marriott in Tulsa.
    “It’s quite an honor,” he said. “I was surprised because I know the high school put out some information last year and I didn’t make it. I thought it was a one-time deal and really didn’t know.”
