District 6A-3 notebook: Jenks still strong without Jarrett Lake

Even without Jarrett Lake playing for Jenks this season, the Trojans still have a ton of talent returning from last season’s Class 6A state runner-up.

In addition to offensive linemen Jake Alexander and Bob Graham, Jenks has at three more players who could wind up playing Division I football.

The most surprising might be defensive back, senior Devin Pugh. He didn’t start last year but did contribute in the secondary.

Trojans coach Allan Trimble said Pugh might be a sleeper with continued improvement.

David Lore has been getting plenty of looks. The 6-foot-1, 255-pound defensive lineman gained 30 pounds over the summer and maintained his above-average speed for a lineman.

MEMORIAL AIMS FOR PLAYOFFS
With 16 starters returning, Tulsa Memorial (3-7) could be primed to make the 6A playoffs. Memorial will make use of its biggest strengths, running backs and the offensive line. Third-year starter Tyler Simms is more of a threat to run than pass.
