But the Bombers were one vote shy. One 6A-2 coach went with Edmond Memorial as the top pick, with MWC second.
The Bombers lost a lot from the skilled positions but return a solid defense.
Westmoore’s West on the move
Statistically, Stanley West
was the best dual-threat quarterback Westmoore has ever had. West threw for more than 900 yards and ran for more than 900 last season. Other Jaguar QBs had run for more yards, and some from way back had thrown for more, but none had the dual success that West had in 2008.
But West was asked to move to receiver and take on a bigger role defensively in the secondary. The senior never had a complaint.
"He was thrown in as the starting quarterback during the first scrimmage last year, and he passed and ran for 900 yards each (on the season),” said Westmoore coach Chad Davis
. "Now he’s switching for the good of the team.”
For his part, West still expects to guide the team.
"I can still be a leader, just from a different position,” he said. "And I can still play a major role in the offense, I just won’t be touching the ball on every play. The move made sense for the team, so I’m on board and ready to go.”
