— A new coach, new system and new look defines the offseason for Edmond North.

The Huskies named longtime Putnam City North assistant Scott Burger coach over the summer, bringing a new offense to match the high expectations.

“It'll be fun,” Burger said. “I tell the kids we'll have fun with this offense. There's some speed to work with at different positions. So, yeah they'll work out fine.”

The Huskies have new faces at some key positions, too.

Gone are quarterback Luke Hoskins and running back Michael Farmer.

Now, there is a battle between seniors Branden Moore and Stephen McClernan to handle the snaps, and Burger has indicated seniors Lindell Tate and Ezel McIntee will see time at running back.

Burger, though, has expressed how impressed he has been with the skill players.

But he also stresses he is still evaluating the team and learning the spread offense and fast tempo will take time.

“They've got to think on their feet and they've got to do it at a high rate,” Burger said. “They're doing it a lot better than we were. It's going to take time.”

Defensively, the Huskies are keeping things the same, remaining in a 3-4 base with the Dixon triplets — Andrew, Lance and Joel — anchoring the group. All are highly recruited wrestlers and have improved this offseason.
