A district championship was one of the few things Bill Blankenship had not accomplished in his two-plus seasons at Owasso. The Rams' legendary coach can now cross that off the list.
The top-ranked team in Class 6AI forced three turnovers and scored three touchdowns in the third quarter on their way to a 34-7 win over No. 8 Moore Friday at Owasso Stadium. With the victory, the Rams improved to 9-0 overall and clinched the District 6AI-2 crown with a 6-0 record.
"I believe a lot if you can get home-field advantage and now you're the top seed, all those things matter in the matchups," Blankenship said. "It doesn't mean you're going to get somebody that isn't any good. But I'd rather play the fourth place team than the No. 1 or No. 2."
