His most impressive accomplishment was moving from receiver and replacing star senior David Cornwell, who has since signed and enrolled at Alabama.

Cornwell suffered a season-ending knee injury against Yukon on Oct. 4. Kolar came in and was brilliant late, leading the Timberwolves to a comeback victory.

Norman North was 4-2 with Kolar at quarterback the rest of the season, falling to Mustang in the first round of the playoffs.

It’s safe to say that Kolar has locked up the quarterback position for Norman North, even if he had originally hoped to be behind center as a junior.

“Once we started going with receiver, I didn’t really give up on quarterback but just kind of thought I would get my shot next year,” he said. “I thought I’d make best of being a receiver.”

Oklahoma State offered on Feb. 14 and was the lone school to offer, though Kolar said both Oklahoma and Tennessee had recently reached out to him.

“I just felt more comfortable with Oklahoma State, the program and its coaches,” Kolar said.
