As Norman High opens fall practice on Tuesday morning the Tigers will begin their search for a new starting quarterback.
Coach Greg Nation says seniors Levi Frederickson and Travis Houck, and junior Travis Degrate will compete for the job.
“They all bring different strengths and weaknesses as far as what they can do at the position,” Nation said. “It’s wide open right now and I think the competition as we start practice will be a good thing for us. Good competition brings a better team.”
Norman also must replace leading rusher Dupree Young, who had over 1,000 yards last season.
Nation says senior Darius Manning is expected to become the primary running back with junior Ty Smith also playing a significant role in the Tigers’ run-first offense.
