Norman's Donovan Roberts, Shawnee's Hunter Holley impress...
By Robert Przybylo
You realize two things whenever you go to one of these eight-team scrimmages. 1. You’re going to see a lot of great stuff. You’re going to see kids surprise you with how good they are. 2. By the time you get to final one, you’re going to be so tired that you forget what happened in the first one.
With all that said, had a great time Thursday night at the Top of the World Classic at Norman’s Harve Collins Field.
Teams in this recap: Shawnee, Stillwater, Norman, McAlester.
Scrimmage No. 1: Shawnee 14, Stillwater 8
Shawnee: The first thing you noticed was the lack of Brayle Brown. He got a little banged up before the first scrimmage and coach Billy Brown kept Brayle out of this one.
You couldn’t really notice because of how well Hunter Holley played in his spot. Holley was great at both quarterback and defensive back and showed some good moves in the open field.
It’s a shame for the Wolves that Holley is also a senior, but he should be able to find other avenues to get on the field because he was good tonight.
Liked what I saw from Leon Davis and Jeremy Barrientos as well. Wolf Kienzle had a pretty big night for the Wolves. This team showed a lot as it begins its life in 6A.
Stillwater: Shaky start for junior quarterback Jerame Littell. A couple of picks and a fumble, but he really settled down after that. He hooked up with his younger brother, Jon, for a touchdown late in the scrimmage. Jon is 6-1 and only a freshman. How big do those Littell boys end up being?
Loved what I saw from junior running back Davion Carter. Broke off a couple of big runs, and the Pioneers should be set with a nice balanced attack.
