— Coming off a championship season, Oklahoma Christian School remains a top contender in Class 2A.

The Saints lost quarterback Austin Brooks and others to graduation, but they return key contributors like Luke Frankfurt, Cameron James and Will McKinnis.


“It's a tough road to get through 2A,” OCS coach Derek Turner said. “There's a lot of great teams in 2A ... and our deal is we've just got to be able to manage the kids we have, find what they do best and put them in the position where they can be successful.”

Turner started by moving McKinnis to quarterback, offering a more mobile threat than Brooks.

James and Frankfurt return in the backfield. James rushed for more than 500 yards and seven touchdowns, while Frankfurt rushed for nearly 1,200 yards and 10 TDs.

But Turner wants more from the running game.

“We've got to build a little depth at running back,” he said. “Even though we've got two great kids, I want to build a little more.”

But the skill players will only be as successful as the new-look offensive line. Asher Martel is the lone returning starter from last season, leaving the other four spots to newcomers.
