FOX 8 Big 8 No. 1 ranked John Curtis won their opener 27-18 on the road at defending Class 5A champion Landry-Walker. 

Tyrone Legette ignited the Patriots with two touchdowns. One of those came on a 95-yard kickoff return, right after Landry-Walker cut the Curtis lead to 7-6. Curtis Quarterback Collin Guggenheim threw a touchdown pass to Legette, and ran one in from 4-yards out.

Landy-Walker's big performer of the night was running back Chad Alexander. He racked up 206 total yards on offense, including a touchdown run.
