With the loss of star Jacob Overton, Minco is replacing one of the most productive players to come through the program in recent years.
In Overton’s absence, junior quarterback Hunter Jones has taken on a more involved role in the offense and is developing into more of playmaker according to coach Clint Warren.
“(Jones) is a more confident player this year,” Warren said. “We had our first scrimmage against Apache last night and he really stood out.”
Jones started last season as just a 14-year-old sophomore, throwing for 854 yards and nine touchdowns.
Overton, now a freshman receiver at Oklahoma Baptist, played several positions for the Bulldogs last season and scored 32 touchdowns before suffering a serious knee injury in a second-round playoff loss.
“We’re still running the same offense, but things are obviously going to be different without Jacob,” Warren said. “He played every position on the field. You don’t really replace a guy like that. You just hope to have two or three different kids step up at those skill positions.”
Warren says the team’s strength will be in the offensive line as they return five players who started games last season.
