Westmoore wide receiver Dahu Green used his 6-foot-3 frame and raw talent to burst onto the high school football scene as a junior last season.

Green, No. 5 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30 recruiting rankings, hauled in 40 receptions for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Green, an unknown talent heading into last season, quickly became recognized as one of the top receivers in Class 6A with four touchdowns in the Jaguars’ first three games.

The most memorable was a five-yard hitch route he turned into a 90-yard touchdown in a Week 3 win at Norman North.
