Last September, John Kolar was showing his athletic ability while establishing himself as a valuable wide receiver in the Norman North offense.

Then quarterback David Cornwell got hurt and Kolar got to show off a whole different set of skills.

The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Kolar jumped right in, completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 1,675 yards with 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions.

By late February, he was verbally committed to Oklahoma State.

Now he’s spending his spring working to polish the tools that will benefit him both at Norman North and eventually with the Cowboys.

“My main focus from last year to this year is my footwork,” Kolar said. “I’m working on my drops, and getting my throwing motion down. And the other thing I’ve been working on is throwing on the run.”
