Ed Memorial: Kameron Doolittle should sit this week...
By Robert Przybylo
I do my best to not just flat out say what I think a certain team should do. I don’t have that right, and I’m not there in the locker room every day getting a feel of what’s up.
But I feel if Edmond Memorial is going to make a big splash this season, quarterback Kameron Doolittle must ride the bench this week. Heck, maybe even next week.
His ankle injury, from all the times I’ve talked to coach Justin Merideth about it, is not something you can really label. Simply put, ‘it hurts.’ It’s not something you diagnose and say ‘ah, that’s a 1-2 week injury.’ This is a situation you have to play on feel.
And truth is Doolittle probably shouldn’t have played against Putnam North. You know he wanted to, you know Merideth wanted to have his best weapon out there, but it wasn’t happening.
If you make the call early and let Ry Huff know it’s his show now, you would think he would have more confidence. And I don’t think confidence is an issue, from him or Merideth.
Merideth says he doesn’t have any problems with Huff at quarterback. And from the tone of his voice, I believe him. You put Huff and Cale Olbert running in front of that line, Bulldogs should be OK at Moore.
Add in that stifling defense and perhaps a return of DL Alex Crislip, and there ya go. It’s gut-check time for Memorial. Gonna have to prove it can win when it’s not 100 percent. If it can, Merideth’s club is going to be just fine. Officially, Doolittle is day-to-day.
