"It's been a change," Burton said of the move to left tackle. "It's kind of hard to get used to, because everything's reversed. The left side of my body was strong last year, because I was pushing off with the left leg every play and now it's the opposite. It just takes a little bit to get used to."
Morrison a leader for Cyclones
This year's Casady team has a much different look from last year's 'Redeem Team.' A club that was full of seniors has been replaced by a lot of young kids.
The Cyclones only have three seniors on their roster, but one of them, lineman Connor Morrison, has emerged as this year's leader.
"With him out there, it's like having another coach," coach Koby Scoville said. "Seriously, he commands the respect from his teammates and understands what we're trying to do."
Because Casady is not a member of the OSSAA, the Cyclones have already completed two weeks of practice.
Tulsa Union's Jones commits to Colorado State
Entering the season, it didn't appear Tulsa Union had many individual stars but had the deepest team in the state.
But the Redskins did have their second senior commit to a Division I school in less than a week Friday night.
Tight end Blake Jones committed to Colorado State. At 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, Jones has tremendous size and was also receiving interest from several Big 12 schools.
Teammate Kale Pearson, who is moving from wide receiver to quarterback this season, committed to Air Force earlier in the week.
