Here's a look at how some high school stars performed in scrimmages Thursday night:
Frankie Edwards, Mustang
It took some time for the Mustang offense to find its rhythm, but once it did, Edwards and the Broncos started moving the ball well on the Union defense.
The senior quarterback led a pair of late touchdown drives to tie up the game, which finished 12-12.
“We started off a little slow,” said Edwards. “But once we got into a rhythm, we started moving it, and the defense was playing real well.
“Our offensive line was playing great, and we can't do anything without those guys. We did a lot of play-action stuff and I love it, moving around and getting on the edge.”
Quan Hogan, Norman North
Hogan, just a sophomore, saw plenty of action for Norman North, breaking off multiple long runs, scoring a touchdown and impressing quarterback David Cornwell.
“I think he earned that offer from Tulsa,” Cornwell said. “He's making a lot of plays that a lot of guys can't do in 6A. I'm just really impressed with him. I'll give him a high-five after this; we're going to go to work with him.”
Lexus Lee, Westmoore
The speedster broke loose for a 40-yard touchdown on the Jaguars' first possession against Lawton Eisenhower.
On the second possession, he opened with another long run to set up a TD by quarterback Devon Navarro.
Lee and running back Keiron Hardrick scored three of the Jaguars' first four touchdowns.
Michael Farmer, Edmond Santa Fe
Farmer played mostly in the final quarter against Norman North's backups, scoring two touchdowns.
His most impressive run was a 57-yarder in which he broke down the left sideline.
Farmer, who is coming off an ACL injury, said he felt good Thursday.
“Getting out there, I wasn't loose,” he said. “Just getting out there running the ball, coaches believing in me and me pushing it, I felt like it's all starting to come together.”
Farmer also played some linebacker and running back during the rapid-fire period earlier in the day.
Jeffery Mead, Tulsa Union
In high school football, a 6-foot-1 cornerback is rare, even at the Class 6A level. So Mead, a 6-foot-7 Union wideout and OU commit, lines up with a height advantage of six inches or more on every play.
Though Union was working two different quarterbacks Thursday, it was clear that the fade route to Mead will be a staple of the playbook when defenses don't double-team him.
Mead made a couple of impressive catches over the top of defenders, showing an ability to adjust well to the ball while it's in the air.
Eli Hooks and Dillon Noble, Deer Creek
Hooks, a defensive end, always seemed to be in the middle of the play, even if the play wasn't around him.
“His motor runs,” Deer Creek coach Grant Gower said. “He's always around the football.”
Noble booted a 52-yard field goal to ‘oohs' and ‘ahhs' from the opposing teams in the Deer Creek scrimmage. Noble kicked a 58-yarder last year in the playoffs.
“He's a soccer player and he just has great leg whip,” Gower said. “He just goes through the ball. He's probably one of the most consistent kickers that I've ever had.”
Tramal Ivy, Muskogee
Opposing quarterbacks didn't like Ivy last year when he was pressuring them in the backfield.
They won't like him this year, either, but for a whole different reason.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Ivy — who has about a half-dozen college scholarship offers as a defensive end or outside linebacker prospect — is playing a roving safety position that allows him to move around the field and make plays.
Ivy was able to come up into the box to make tackles on running plays, and he drifted back into coverage on passes, coming up with an interception.
“I'm free to do whatever I want, basically,” said Ivy, who added a Colorado State offer just a few days ago. “Most colleges are looking at me as a defensive end or outside linebacker to be a rusher off the edge. But safety is fun.”
