Tigers look for run-game answers
By Justin Harper
In two of its last three games, Norman has been held to single digits in rushing on more than 25 carries in each outing. It’s a frustrating thing for a Tigers program that has long run the ball with success.
However, Norman isn’t scrapping the playbook heading into Thursday’s game against Westmoore.
“We’re just trying to get better at what we’re doing,” said senior quarterback Trenton Wright. “We just need to focus and try to make more big plays.”
Still, Wright said more emphasis on the passing game may be required for the Tigers (2-5) to have more success.
“Maybe throw the ball more,” he said when asked for a solution. “If your run game isn’t working, that may be the best idea.”
Either way, Norman remains confident despite the tough start under first-year coach Greg Nation.
“We’re still going out there playing the same game as usual,” Wright said. “We’re not giving up or anything.”
