    Edmond Memorial coach Justin Merideth was pleased with the output of the offensive and defensive lines throughout the first week of practice despite the offense returning just two starters up front and the defensive one. “Where we’ve lost a lot of guys, those guys understand they’ve got to step into their role, they’ve had very good energy and they’ve picked up the schemes,” Merideth said. “Now, until we get the pads on we don’t know how good they are.” Offensive linemen Grant Hill and Ethan Walker, and defensive end Dareion Gooden are the returning starters. Merideth said they all have provided strong leadership.
