Week 12 Winner: Olton QB Bobby Workman:
Olton quarterback Bobby Workman almost singlehandedly guided his team to a second-round victory against Stanton.
Workman passed for 438 yards and four touchdowns to key the offense. As if that wasn't enough, he also had two interceptions while playing defense, and he returned one of them for a touchdown to secure a 35-21 victory.
It was the first time in school history that Olton has won two playoff games in the same season. Olton (10-2) advances to face Canadian on Saturday in the Class 1A-Division I Region I championship game.
