Jennings, a 6-foot-4 guard, averaged 17.5 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game as a junior while leading the Panthers to the Class 4A state tournament. He was a first-team selection to The Oklahoman's Little All-City team.

With an experienced group of players around Jennings, Harrah is expected to be one of 4A's top teams this season.

YUKON COUNTING ON SOMERVILLE

Coming off its fourth consecutive playoff appearance, Yukon will once again be expecting a lot of quarterback Hayden Somerville.

Somerville was among Class 6A's top passers last year, his first as a starter. He threw for 2,314 yards with 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and he comes into his senior season with even higher expectations.

Yukon coach Todd Wilson, who returns to guiding the offense after one season coordinating the defense, has been pleased with Somerville's leadership early in camp.

“He's looking really good so far, and he's working hard to bring our inexperienced receivers along,” Wilson said. “And it helps a lot that we're returning most of our offensive line. That group works really well together.”

Wilson had called plays and coached quarterbacks every season at Yukon until last year. Now, he hands over the defensive controls to co-coordinators Chad Marchino and Adam Jewell.

PC NORTH TURNING TO YOUTH

If you understand Putnam City North coach Bob Wilson's sense of humor, you know he'd probably tell you that his age and failing memory are the reasons he can't name very many of his returning starters.

But the truth is, the Panthers just don't have that many starters coming back.

Hit hard by graduation, PC North will turn to several young players to try to get them back to the 6A playoffs again after last year's 6-5 campaign.

“We're gonna be pretty young,” Wilson said. “Kaedyn Fuller is a returning guy at receiver, and one lineman, Nathan Lowery, and those are the only real offensive returners we have. Defensively, we've got part of our secondary back and a linebacker or two, but that's about it.”

Wilson will turn to junior Chase Sparks at quarterback to lead an offense coordinated by Rod Richardson, who fills the void of Scott Burger, now the head coach at Edmond North.
