Defense Must Stop
QB Blake Summers (Davis)
The quarterback is usually the biggest key to the wishbone attack and Summers fills that role extremely well with outstanding reads in the option game. Has tremendous feet and quickness as well. Posted more than 200 yards rushing and three scores a week ago against Vian.

Key Ingredients
Even though they have slowed considerably over the last couple of weeks, Millwood's offense has been nothing short of dynamic all season long. They've scored at least 53 points eight time this season. Speed and athleticism may them extremely tough to defend. And while the offense may slowed down a tad, Millwood's defense has picked it up a notch and hasn't yielded double figures in any of the Falcons' four playoff outings this year.

Why this is their year
The Falcons have been the dominant team in the class most of the season and have turned back two formidable tests the past two weeks. Their Week 3 road thumping of Adair may have been the most impressive regular season triumph in Class 2A and they also dropped arch-rival and 4A state semifinalist Douglass in Week 2.

State Finals History
8th state finals appearance but first since 2006 when they edged Vian (21-20). Falcons have won each of their last five championship showings, including three in a row from 2000-2002. That included a 26-25 triumph against Davis in 2000.

#2 Davis (14-0)
2A-4 Champions
Coach: Jody Weber
State Titles: 4 (last 1995)

W - Adair, 28-27
W - Vian, 56-39

Scoring Averages
Offense - 46.5
Defense - 18.2

Defense Must Stop
QB Cameron Batson (Millwood)
Athletic signal-caller is the catalyst of the Falcon offensive attack. He does much of his damage on the ground, as evident by last week's 215 yards and three rushing touchdowns in the semifinals, but can also make things happen with his arm.

Key Ingredients
The wishbone. That pretty much sums it up for the Wolves as usual. Few opponents have been able to slow them down, much less shut them down this season. Their 28 points against Adair was the Wolves' lowest point total of the season. They also scored 34 in a Week 1 win over Class A finalist Ringling.

Why this is their year
Even though the Davis defense has shown some weakness (each of their last three opponents have scored at least 27 points) the Wolves offense has been virtually unstoppable. That attack scored 41 points against Oklahoma Christian in last year's title tilt and it wasn't enough. You can bet the Wolves still have a mighty bad taste in their mouths and it's been more than a full calendar year.

State Finals History
11th state finals appearance, including second in a row. Lost to Oklahoma Christian (44-41) in last year's title contest. Wolves have won four state titles but none since 1995 when they topped Nowata (28-0). Beat Cascia Hall (28-21) for the 1990 crown and Newkirk (31-0) for the 1986 title. Beat Crescent (35-6) for first title in 1979. Have lost five consecutive trips to the finals.

Millwood will get a BIG dose of Braden Ruth up the middle. He's unstoppable. Davis has to play smart to win. They can't give up easy scores. Certainly can't spot Millwood three touchdowns like last year and expect to win.
