But Thursday night's win over Edmond North was the biggest yet.

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.

SOFTBALL FINALS RESUME TODAY

The Class 4A fast-pitch softball championship game between Oologah and Piedmont will resume at 2 p.m. Monday at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.

Oologah leads 3-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning after the game was stopped due to rain Saturday.

The Class 5A championship game between Grove and Chickasha is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m., followed by the 6A game between Edmond North and Moore at 7.
