Week 4 of the Oklahoma High School Prep Football Season has one of our SKORDLE Game of the Week crews traveling to Marlow as the Outlaws host Pauls Valley.
First of all...huge game. Both teams are undefeated and - once again - District 3A-2 looks to be super-competitive this year so the winner of this game gets a big leg up.
Off the field....
Marlow is home to some notable alumni - if you did not know - some of whom I have included in the list below.
Marlow is also home Giuseppe’s Italian Dining which has become one of the most famous restaurants in this part of Oklahoma.
