EDMOND — In his second year as Edmond North’s coach, Scott Burger is hoping a year of experience helps the Huskies pick up where they left off last season.
Edmond North made the Class 6A quarterfinals — falling to Tulsa Union — but they showed improvement on both sides of the ball throughout the season.
Now, even with a load of new faces on both sides of the ball, there is hope they can show even more improvement this season.
“The kids did a great job last year,” Burger said. “When we came in, it was obviously different for them. We’re just really trying to build on the team concept and trying to build off what we did last year. They got better at knowing what we were wanting offensively and defensively, which will allow us to put in more things.”
That will allow for quarterback Stephen McClernon to continue improving after surpassing 1,600 yards passing while throwing 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
It’ll also allow returning players like running back Richard McCauley and Austin Steward III to improve on offense.
“We got better at it,” Burger said of the offense. “It looked a little herky-jerky at times but they got better as the year went on and we’ll just keep trying to build on that. I think it’ll be better just because of the simple fact they’ve been doing it for a year.”
