In Billy Langford's first season last year, Westmoore doubled their number of wins from the season before.
The year before Langford's arrival, the Jaguars were 3-7 and next-to-last in their district.
Last year, Westmoore was 5-5 in the regular season but squeaked into the playoffs before pulling off a stunning first-round upset of previously undefeated Midwest City before finishing 6-6.
The Jaguars won't be as big of a surprise this time around.
Langford's team returns eight starters on offense and five on defense and appears poised to make a run at another postseason berth.
“We're definitely ahead of where we were last year at this time,” Langford said.
One of the biggest improvements has been in the passing game, where senior quarterback Trevor Thompson returns after throwing for nearly 1,200 yards as a junior.
“He's really gained a lot of confidence in the position,” Langford said.
Thompson has plenty of targets returning as well.
Dalton Craig and Austin Bowling give him strong targets on the outside, with Jhames West and Lexus Lee expected to carry the load at the inside receiver spots.
“Last year, we were more worried about what the routes were and now, it's about running them better and adding things,” Langford said.
The Jaguars also return guard Nick Hardaway, who had 28 pancake blocks last year as a sophomore, along the front.
While there aren't as many returners on the defensive side, Langford has seen progress there as well.
“It's a different type of group,” Langford said. “We're probably more athletic but less big and physical than we've been on defense. We've just got to adjust to that as coaches.”
Kyle Factor, a 5-foot-10, 250-pound senior, anchors the defensive front. He had 53 tackles and four sacks there last season.
One place Westmoore doesn't have to adjust is at free safety, where Archie Ocloolee returns after registering 87 tackles, two interceptions and a sack as a junior.
Addison Staggs and Dennis Schooley also return as starting defensive backs.
One player Langford has been particularly impressed with early in camp is junior linebacker Josh Morgan.
“He's looked really good so far,” Langford said. “He's come a long way since last season.”
