HIGH SCHOOL SCRIMMAGE STAR WATCH
David Cornwell, Norman North
The ankle injury suffered in last week's scrimmage kept Cornwell out Thursday night, though he didn't appear bothered by the injury as he walked the sidelines at Mustang's Pigskin Preview scrimmage.
Norman North coach Wade Standley said the team will evaluate him on a day-to-day basis to check his availability heading into the Crosstown Clash against Norman next Thursday at Owen Field.
Filling Cornwell's spot was 6-foot-4 junior John Kolar, who impressed the crowd with his throwing arm. He hit Nick Basquine for a touchdown in the team's 7-0 win over Southmoore.
Frankie Edwards, Mustang
Edwards impressed with his tough running against Tulsa Union last week, but showed off the throwing arm on Thursday night.
He threw three touchdown passes and kept the offense moving smoothly before giving way to the second-teamers in Mustang's 20-14 half-game win over Lawton MacArthur.
Jacob Lewis, McGuinness
Lewis' quarterback play was solid, though the McGuinness offense ran hot and cold throughout the night.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior also saw considerable action at cornerback, a position he expects — and enjoys — to play during the season.
“We have two great corners right now, but if there's a situation where they need me, they'll definitely put me out there,” Lewis said. “I just love playing football, so it's good. I'll play anywhere.”
Dixon triplets, Edmond North
Anchoring Edmond North's defensive front seven, Andrew, Joel and Lance Dixon caused consistent problems for Westmoore's inexperienced offensive line.
But the triplets weren't the only stars. First-year coach Scott Burger was excited about the play of his defense as a whole in the 7-0 half-game victory at Mustang.
“Right now, the defense is the backbone of our team,” Burger said. “They've got seven starters back, and they're gonna have to hold the rope for us for a while until we get caught up. But we'll get caught up.”
Ashton Antwine, Edmond Memorial
Antwine, a 6-1, 200-pound defensive back, saw little thrown his way from Del City.
