LB/TE 6-2, 225, Sr.
A very physical, big-bodied linebacker, McWilliams is one of the best prospects to ever come out of Tahlequah. He has verbally committed to the University of Tulsa.
ATH 6-2, 180, Jr.
Usually used as a running back, McCarty is strong and quick with the ball. He can play multiple positions and does not shy away from contact. McCarty currently has multiple offers including Pittsburgh, Kansas State and Nebraska.
RB/OLB 6-2, 205, Sr.
One of the top running backs in the state regardless of class, Bizzell has a drive to be the best on the field. Already receiving interest from the next level, Bizzell is poised for a memorable season with the Titans.
C/DL 6-4, 290, Sr.
A solid performer from his center position, Hudson is a heady player with a 3.98 GPA. With excellent size, Hudson could see time on the defensive line as well. Hudson also throws shot during track season.
LB 6-3, 215, Sr.
Faber is an old-school linebacker, never afraid to bang with the running backs. He has interest from several DI schools including Air Force, Army, Georgetown and Eastern Michigan.
QB/DB 5-10, 150, Sr.
Coming back from an injury, Smallwood retains his athleticism and is expected to have a great season. As a DB he recorded six interceptions in only four games. He is a dual-threat quarterback who uses his speed well.
RB/LB 5-9, 185, So.
As a freshman, Lowe rushed for 525 yards on 85 carries. Lowe will help the Rangers offense and should contribute on special teams as well. Look for his speed to show up on defense as well. Lowe should start gaining next level attention with a solid sophomore season.
DE/FB 6-0, 195, Sr.
Team leader in tackles, Seago recorded 90 tackles with 12 sacks and nine tackles for loss last year. Look for Seago to have a similar, if not better, campaign in 2021.

Known for his hard running and big blocks, Hunter is a punisher with or without the ball. At linebacker, Hunter displays natural instincts and commits to the tackle.
QB 6-2, 180, Jr.
Swanson is a dual-threat quarterback for the Tigers. His ability to elude pass rushers and find the open man sets him apart, but his ability to run the ball makes him a threat on any given play. If Swanson has a big season, look for him to be on top of a lot of recruiting boards next year.
MLB/TE 6-1, 240, Sr.
A big junior campaign means expectations are high for the MLB. Grimett had 58 tackles and five sacks last season. He also forced three fumbles.

LT/DE 6-5, 291, Sr.
Williams is a two-way player for Shawnee and someone who can dominate the line of scrimmage. Look for Williams to have a big year and receive some interest from colleges around the state.
LB 6-1, 200, Sr.
A heavy thumper on defense, Devereaux plays the game with purpose and when he hits you, you know it. Expect his play to set the tone for El Reno and play a big role in the overall success of the team.
RB/S/KR 5-9, 190, Sr.
At his running back spot, Orange rushed for more than 1,600 yards with 22 touchdowns. Few players will do as much for his team as Orange will do for Shawnee. Also serves as the kick and punt returner.
