All-State football: Move to Lawton a good one for Ryne Yost

OKLAHOMAN ALL-STATE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN — After arriving in Lawton, Ryne Yost spent plenty of time in the weight room. His hard work paid off.

Yost graded out at an average of more than 90 percent per game for the Wolverines, who failed to make the playoffs after losing eight starters at various points of the season to injuries.

“The injuries really killed us,” Yost said. “We had a really good start but then we had about seven kids go down and all of them were starters. I wouldn't say the morale was down, but it wasn't the same once the season started. I'd say that's a big part of how our season ended.”

But his presence along with sophomore Jalin Barnett, who is nearly 6-foot-4 and 292 pounds, at right tackle and Ben Scott at right guard, allowed the Wolverines to continue to run the ball.

“I don't know in Elk City if he consistently went against people his size or not,” Breeze said. “I wouldn't think so because he's a pretty good size kid. I'm real proud of the way he held his own against some very good defensive tackles around the state.”
