Langston is beating teams with an explosive offense and a balanced attack. The air attack is led by Larry Harrington, who has accumulated 838 yards and nine touchdowns. His favorite target is Bryon Hansard, with 15 receptions for 247 yards and two touchdowns. The ground attack is led by 5’10″ 195 lb Markell Scott, a big-play running back who leads the Sooner Athletic Conference in rushing with 608 yards on 62 attempts and averaging 9.8 yards per rush.

The Lions are averaging 51 points a game. They have outscored their opponents 204 to 69.

This is not the first time the Lions have gotten a hot start. Last year they started 7-0. After losing the last three games of the 2021 season, they finished 7-3.
