Westmoore: Season outlook...
By Justin Hite
Offensive outlook: So…the spread offense didn’t work last season, unless a 3-7 season is a success at Westmoore. It probably isn’t, and that’s why Billy Langford was brought over from Mustang. He was an offensive line coach there and what do offensive linemen love more than anything else? They love to run the football and that’s what Westmoore will do. That should bring a smile to senior running back Cody Feuerborn’s face. Behind Division-I prospect left tackle Tyler Newton, Feuerborn could run for well over 1,000 yards.
Determining the defense: This should be where Westmoore really shines. With Newton playing both sides and Kyle Factor in the middle of the defensive line, the Jaguars will be stout up front. Throw in returning linebacker Cody Cates in his third year as a starter as well as running mate Bryan Norris who had 80 tackles last season and the Jaguars will be difficult to run against. But how will the Jaguars do in the air? That’s really the only question on both sides of the ball.
Key game: Glancing over Westmoore’s schedule, there’s one pack of games that sticks out. U.S. Grant, Del City, Edmond North and Putnam City from Week 5 to Week 8 are all winnable games. The Jaguars might be favored in three of those games, but Edmond North is the strongest of the group. A four-game winning streak would go a long way to propelling the Jaguars forward, but they’ll have to get by Edmond North.
Bold prediction: Westmoore will control the clock and control both lines fairly often throughout the season. That’s usually good enough to get a team to a .500 record. One thing should be certain; Westmoore will be better than it was last year. Don’t be surprised to see at least a three-win improvement and a record over .500.
