Friday night against Muskogee, West threw for four touchdowns and ran for another in a 55-14 win.
“He's played a lot more confident,” Langford said. “He's got more confidence in himself, and he's got more confidence in his receiving crew.”
The biggest part of that receiving crew has been Lexus Lee.
Lee caught a pair of touchdowns from West in the first quarter Friday, one a short-distance pass and another from more than 50 yards.
Lee is averaging more than 20 yards per catch.
“We've done a good job in the play-action stuff getting Lexus loose,” Langford said. “With our run game as good as it is right now and our offensive line playing the way they are, we're going to give defenses problems.”
Westmoore hosts Putnam City on Thursday.
BASKETBALL BACK IN ACTION
High school gyms across the state were once again filled with the sounds of bouncing basketballs Monday afternoon with the opening of full practice.
“I know we're ready to get back at it,” Bishop McGuinness coach Tondrell Durham said.
Durham faces a tough challenge, replacing all five starters from last year's Class 5A state championship team.
“Expectations will be high after a state championship,” he said. “But we're looking forward to a new challenge. We'll just have to continue to push doing the little things right.”
Like many coaches around the state, Durham will be waiting on some key members of his team to join him after football season. McGuinness defensive end David Love will be expected to fill a starting role in Durham's frontcourt, alongside 6-foot-8 sophomore Will Lienhart.
HEINEN TAKES TITLE
Edmond North junior Nick Heinen came from behind with a final-round 64 to win the OJGT Beast of the East tournament Sunday at Lincoln Park's East course.
Heinen carded eight birdies and two bogeys in the final round and shot a two-day total of 130 to win the age 15-18 division. He opened the final round four shots behind Edmond Memorial's Ty Tamura, who finished three back in second place. Heinen has won his last two OJGT starts.
Durant's Sydney Youngblood won a playoff over Poteau's Hannah Ward for the girls title.
Yukon's Lane Wallace shot even-par 140 over two rounds to win the boys age 12-14 division.
