Here is a look at some of the new faces at some familiar places in the Oklahoma City area football scene:

Wade Standley, Norman North: Manning's departure led to Standley taking over. Standley coached in Liberal, Kan., and was also an assistant at Tulsa Union.


Tucker Barnard, Stillwater: Barnard is replacing Rusty Atkins and has one of the best quarterback-wide receiver punches in the state in QB Jerame Littell and WR Jesse Vester.

Richard Tuberville, Choctaw: A former assistant for the Yellowjackets, Tuberville jumped at the chance when former coach Bill Bays became the athletic director at Edmond Memorial.

Dan Burgess, U.S. Grant: The Generals will try to get on track with their third coach in as many years.

Shawn Mason, El Reno: With Tom Cobble leaving to go back to Chickasha, Mason gets his chance with the Indians.

Justin Jones, Bishop McGuinness: Jones faced the Irish for several years at Woodward and knows exactly what he's getting into and is pumped for the opportunity.

Craig Church, Piedmont: A former Stillwater assistant, Church will try to right the ship after the departure of Rob Green.

Ted Dorrell, Little Axe: After the two best seasons in school history, the former Jones assistant and Choctaw head coach hopes to keep the good times rolling with the Indians.

Chris Stiles, St. Mary: Back to the grind after a 12-year absence as a head coach, Stiles has been a part of the Rocket program for the last six years.
