With wins across the board in Week 5 for the teams of the Class 6A top 10, the biggest impact on the future of the rankings could be the right knee of Norman North quarterback David Cornwell.

The status of his injury suffered Friday night in a 45-42 win over Yukon is expected to be learned Monday. Should Cornwell be out for an extended period of time, the Timberwolves aren’t quite as powerful — though backup John Kolar held his own with some nice throws in the second half Friday night.

The win at Yukon gave Norman North another solid win on the resume, and with Owasso’s unimpressive 24-0 win over Ponca City, Norman North isn’t far from jumping over the Rams for the seventh spot in the poll. You could make a pretty strong argument for it. But with the Timberwolves’ QB situation still in limbo, both teams hold their spots this week.

And the same goes for the rest of the top 10. Here’s The Oklahoman’s Class 6A poll after Week 5:

Rank, Team, Record (Prev.)
1. Jenks, 5-0 (1)
2. Tulsa Union, 3-2 (2)
3. Broken Arrow, 4-1 (3)
4. Ed. Santa Fe, 4-1 (4)
5. Westmoore, 5-0 (5)
6. Lawton, 5-0 (6)
7. Owasso, 2-3 (7)
8. Norman North, 3-2 (8)
9. Midwest City, 4-1 (9)
10. Southmoore, 3-2 (10)
Dropped out: None
