Norman North's Nick Basquine puts together a highlight-reel season

ALL-STATE FOOTBALL — Leaping touchdown catches, torching defensive backs on deep post routes, and even a one-handed interception serve as evidence to Nick Basquine being one of the most electrifying players in the 2014 class.

If you're looking for Oklahoma's most impressive highlight film from the football Class of 2014, do a Google search for Norman North's Nick Basquine.

Just 25 seconds in, you'll see one of the top plays of the 2013 season from The Oklahoman's All-State wide receiver. The Timberwolves' receiver takes a reverse 39 yards for a touchdown, making two defenders miss via spin move on his way to pay dirt.

“We purposely put some of the big plays in the front so it catches people's attention,” Basquine said. “They'll press play and it won't take long for them to say, ‘hey, this kid can really play.'”

Though he claims his most impressive plays are at the beginning, it's hard to tell when they stop.

Leaping touchdown catches, torching defensive backs on deep post routes, and even a one-handed interception serve as evidence to Basquine being one of the most electrifying players in the 2014 class.

Basquine's 64 catches for 1,187 yards and 14 touchdowns this season provide further proof.
