Filling the Gaps


Norman's new starting quarterback, Jakcob Dean, and the Tigers took their sweet time during their drive-to-score portion Top of the World Football Classic against Deer Creek.

On the first drive, the Tigers controlled the clock for nearly six minutes. They ended the drive with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Dean to junior wide receiver George Carter. That was all Norman coach Greg Nation needed to see from Dean during the series. He put backup quarterback, junior Levi Frederickson, in for the remainder of the drive-to-score scrimmage.


As a receiver the last couple of years, Millwood's Cameron Batson has tortured defenses when he got the ball in his hands.

And that's bad news for opponents, because with his shift to quarterback, Batson's handling the ball a lot more following the graduation of London Potts.

He scored the only touchdown in Millwood's 7-0 win over Douglass in the All-City Preview final, breaking one tackle and spinning out of another for the 10-yard score. And he showed he can throw the ball, too.

“The offense is coming together real well,” receiver Alfonzo McMillian said. “We're getting a lot of things worked out and getting much smoother.”
