Channing Meyer still a big part of Norman North's offense

After losing quarterback battle to Peyton Gavras, Meyer has seen time at QB, wide receiver and running back.

“I knew he was in a rough position doing a bit of everything, but he's handled it really well.”

Gavras is happy to be healthy this late in the season after a concussion cut his season short early last year.

“This season has been a lot of fun so far,” Gavras said. “I don't want to lose a season like that again. It really hurt. You might look fine on the outside, but on the inside, you're not yourself.

“I'm back to having fun out there.”

Gavras has thrown for 1,070 yards, 12 touchdowns and three interceptions so far. Meyer has run for a touchdown, caught a touchdown pass and thrown for two as he's moved from role to role.

Norman North faces a critical test Thursday when it hosts undefeated Edmond North.

The Timberwolves, especially on offense, look at the game as a bit of a second chance after they fell to Westmoore 29-16 on Sept. 13.

“They're pretty comparable to Westmoore with how good their defense is and what they try to do defensively,” Meyer said. “I'd say this one is for the district championship.”

The pair are the only two teams undefeated in District 6A-3 play, with Putnam City North and Moore each a game back.
