Jalen Adams, Southmoore
Adams was only targeted a few times, including the first play of the scrimmage against Edmond North.
He caught just one pass, but was far from discouraged.
“They tried to press me a little bit, but we're doing a good job,” he said. “We're doing a good job. We're not fully ready yet, but we'll get there.
“It's not about me getting the ball. It's about our team getting better.”
Warren Wand, Edmond Memorial
When Wand touched the ball on the first play of the second run-through for the first offense, he didn't stop for 65 yards. Three plays later, he capped the drive with a touchdown. When Wand found a gap, he found open green space, usually for more than 20 yards.
“Warren had a lot of big plays,” Edmond Memorial coach Justin Merideth said.
But Merideth was frustrated with his team's play and their lack of consistent quality practices during the week.
“At the end of the day, Warren is only going to go as far as his o-line leads him,” Merideth said. “He knows that and we know that and I think our o-line knows that. We've got to do better. We've got to do better as a team. Give a lot of credit to Moore. They played really, really hard and did a really good job.”
Anthony Mason, Del City
The 5-foot-5 running back, who is already Del City's all-time leading rusher, finished with 48 yards on nine carries and a touchdown.
“I think I played pretty well tonight, and the offensive line did a great job,” Mason said. “I'm just happy with how we competed all the way around as a team.”
The senior showed off his ability to burst through the line with five of his nine carries going for at least 7 yards.
Ryan Lujan, Moore
Moore quarterback Jordan Bernhardy is going to get the ball to tailback Ryan Lujan any way he can.
And the Lions expect that Lujan is going to run, and sometimes even catch passes, for big yards.
“He runs like a bull,” Moore coach Todd Watters said. “He never fumbles. ... He just runs so hard. He runs the way he works.
“He's just so consistent and dependable. He's our money man.”
