Quarterback Jhames West was a big reason the Jaguars made the playoffs last season, throwing for more than 1,200 yards and scoring 19 total touchdowns.

Westmoore is now looking at Bryson Lee or Devon Navarro to replace him, and it still remains close after Thursday's scrimmage against Lawton Eisenhower.

“I'll have to go look at film,” Westmoore coach Billy Langford said. “They both did some good things. They were throwing good balls and people catching, and those types of things. There's a lot of positives.

“I guess it's good to have two guys that you feel confident about to go out and run the offense. Now it's just going to be a matter of whittling it down and letting that main guy get the reps so he can be successful.”

Lee and Navarro each orchestrated two TDs on the first four drives of the scrimmage, putting the Jaguars up big early.

Edmond Santa Fe rebuilding secondary

Edmond Santa Fe's revamped secondary had its strong moments against Norman North's David Cornwell, but also allowed him to pass for more than 150 yards.

Still, Santa Fe coach Lance Manning was pleased with his new-look group.

“I think we watch film and there's going to be some frustrating moments there and there's going to be a lot of learning, but I think you've got to take into consideration who we're playing,” he said. “That kid's pretty good. He can throw the football.”

Santa Fe nearly picked off Cornwell twice. Both came when the defensive line forced him to throw from his back foot.

New QB, linebackers for Deer Creek

His quick drop and quick release allowed little time for defenses to pressure. Combine that with the speed of his wideouts and the Antlers' production was solid.
