And one of Norman North's biggest plays come from an unexpected source.
Freshman running back Quan Hogan isn't on Norman North's roster, as he's primarily played for the freshman team this season.
But injuries kept moving Hogan up in the depth chart. He saw significant action in Thursday's 49-27 win, including a 92-yard touchdown run after taking a pitch from Channing Meyer.
“He did a great job,” Norman North coach Wade Standley said of Hogan. “He got the chance, and he's really taken advantage of it.”
Hogan's older brother, Rico, was a standout on last season's Norman High team.
