"His feet are still catching up to the rest of his body,” Coppedge said.

Returning stars

While driving home after last season’s 56-18 win over Arkoma, Porter tight end Derek Meyers fell asleep and crashed his vehicle. In the crash, he detached the retina in his left eye, and couldn’t play the rest of the season. Through four games, he had four touchdowns for the Pirates.

"That’s pretty spectacular for us, we’re pretty much just hand the ball off and run,” Coppedge said. "When we lost him, we lost our passing game.”

Meyers has regained most of the vision in his eye after several surgeries, and Coppedge says he’ll be a big part of their game plan again this season.

Gans quarterback Mike Royal sat out all of last season after breaking his leg in a preseason scrimmage.

"We worked most of the offseason on a scheme that featured the quarterback,” Gans coach Trent Holt said. "That was devastating.”

Royal will return as a senior this season.
