Bomber defense already looking good
It wouldn’t take anybody long to figure out what the strength of the Midwest City football team is going to be in the fall.
You can’t always determine a lot from an hour of watching practice, but it’s pretty clear the strength is going to be on the defensive side of the ball. Even though defense is usually ahead of offense, anyway, the gap is a little bit bigger than what it’s been in the past.
That’s not a knock on the Bomber offense, but that is simply just stating a fact of how good the defense is going to be. Heck, if you ask me, Midwest City has three of the top defenders in the state in defensive backs Ronnie Davis and Ricky Reeves and linebacker Zeke Lewis.
Davis is an interesting story because coach Steve Huff told me Davis is also being considered as the starting quarterback. That would certainly flip the script for me. Davis has been a QB for most of the time but couldn’t replace/surpass Greg Austin. Interesting dynamic if Davis is at QB.
Wasn’t watching too intently on James Flanders, who already has an offer from Tulsa. He was moving around fine and will no doubt be a stud in the fall.
I wasn’t the only one out there as Southwestern Oklahoma State coach Dan Cocannouer was enjoying the practice, too. Cocannouer is copying me (kidding) and has been making the rounds as well. He said he was at Mustang and Yukon earlier in the day before heading to MWC.
