Altus dominates in home opener with 26-3 win over Vernon (TX)

ALTUS, OK (KSWO) - For the first time in 44 years, the Altus Bulldogs took to the field at Hightower Memorial Stadium as defending Class 5A State Champions on Friday. There they took down rival Vernon, TX 26-3.

Tito Jones started the game in arguably the best way possible. He took the opening kick-off 82-yards to the house. That put the Bulldogs up 6-0 early and setting a tone for the game. On their next drive, Nehemiah McCaskill ran 16-yards for another Altus first quarter touchdown.

The Bulldogs are now 2-0. They have a bye week in Week Two, but return to the field on September 16th to host Elk City in Week Three.
