LOCAL QBS HIGHLIGHT RIVALS 250
A pair of junior quarterbacks from the Oklahoma City area were named to the Rivals 250 watch list for the 2014 class Monday.
Edmond Santa Fe's Justice Hansen and Jones' David Cornwell were two of six Oklahomans on the list.
Hansen (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) has thrown for 2,713 yards and 34 touchdowns and ran for 723 yards and 13 scores heading into Friday's second-round playoff game against Tulsa Union.
Cornwell (6-5, 215) has thrown for 2,236 yards and 26 touchdowns. The Longhorns will host Heritage Hall on Friday.
Other state players who made the list include Douglass defensive end Deondre Clark, Jenks defensive back Steven Parker, and Broken Arrow linebacker Gyasi Akem and running back Devon Thomas.
PASSING SHOWDOWN SET IN 2A
The ball will be in the air a lot Friday when Lindsay visits Oklahoma Christian for a Class 2A quarterfinal.
Lindsay (8-3) comes in with one of the top passers in the class, sophomore Jake Standridge, who could surpass the 2,000-yard mark Friday night.
But Austin Brooks has reached that plateau already. The OCS senior has thrown for 2,449 yards with 39 touchdowns and just seven interceptions, completing 137 of 203 (67.5 percent) pass attempts.
