Munday Preparing For State

The Moguls of Munday are taking part in their final practices of the season, prior to the Class 1-A Div. II State Championship.

"It'll be here before we know it," head coach Pat Corcoran said. "At this point in the year, it shouldn't take long to prepare for a game."

For the second straight week, Munday will face an undefeated and ranked team, but it's a much tougher test this time around in No. 2 Tenaha.

The game features two of the top offensive teams in the state. Munday puts up more than 444 yards of offense a game, with 371 of that coming on the ground. Tenaha averages more than 410 yards, with nearly 279 on the ground.

Scoring is nearly identical, with Munday holding a 51.5 to 48.8 scoring average advantage per game.

Both teams are led by dual-threat quarterbacks. Munday junior Dee Paul has accounted for 44 offensive scores, while Tenaha's Reginald Davis has racked up 54.

Corcoran says keeping the plays in front of them will be a big key on the defensive side of the ball. He adds that his team will have to adjust to Tenaha's team speed early in the game.

The Moguls are looking to bring home the state trophy for the first time since 2007. Many of the current Moguls have ties to that championship team.

Paul was one of the team's waterboys, while junior lineman Tomas Carranza, senior lineman Lee White and junior runningback Tyrone Neskorik all had older brothers on the team. Talk to any current Mogul, and they'll describe watching playoff games as a middle school football fan.
