Northwest Classen looking for 2-0 start
Second-year coach Lloyd Smith knows it’s a long process to turn around a Northwest Classen football program that hasn’t enjoyed prosperity in a few decades, but Smith’s work is starting to show some results.
The Knights won three games a year ago, which was a step in the right direction. This preseason, they took third place in the All-City Previews, and opened the regular season with an impressive 35-16 win over a talented John Marshall team last Thursday.
Now, the Knights turn their attention to Northeast, which fell to Tulsa McLain 58-12 in the opener.
With a sophomore at quarterback Northwest is keeping its focus on the ground game, attempting just five passes against the Bears.
Lorenzo Alexander rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries last week, while QB Jalen Harris added 46 yards and two scores on eight attempts.
