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.”
