Norman North will be without standout to start playoffs

Norman North boys soccer standout Trevor Laffoon, one of the state’s top defenders before moving to midfield recently, will miss two to three games after suffering a concussion against Putnam City West last week.

The junior missed the T-Wolves’ 12-2 win over Shawnee and their regular-season finale against US Grant Tuesday.

“I may get to play some in the first round of the playoffs,” Laffoon said. “But it probably won’t be much and I’ll have to be real careful.”

Laffoon suffered the concussion going for a header when his head hit an opponent’s shoulder. The blow left him unconscious for eight minutes and required him to be transported to the hospital. When he does return, Laffoon will wear a soft protective headgear.
