Sealey’s head coach had a slightly different take on his quarterback’s playmaking abilities.
“He thinks he’s Johnny Football out there sometimes,” Randy Breeze said. “On that 80-yard touchdown, we did about 10 things wrong but it ended up working out for us. We’ve got a darn good offense, and our defense isn’t far behind.”
The numbers agree with Breeze. Lawton racked up 525 yards of total offense. Warren, who had a 71-yard TD run in addition to his scoring reception, had 204 yards on 23 carries and is over 1,300 yards already this season. Sealey threw four touchdown passes, all in the first half, and ran for a fifth.
The Wolverines are now 6-0 on the season and 3-0 in District 6A-4.
“This was a big win for us,” Sealey said. “A lot of people picked us to lose, and last year they beat us on our Homecoming, so we were ready to show the world something tonight.”
Southmoore (3-3, 1-2) moved the ball consistently — the Sabercats finished with 21 first downs, just one shy of Lawton’s total — but freshman quarterback Conner Uselton was intercepted on consecutive passes and lost a fumble, halting three drives in Wolverine territory.
Walker led the team with 82 yards on 14 carries, and Pierce Spead scored on a 5-yard run in the first quarter to give the SaberCats an early lead.
