— After an 0-5 start last season, Edmond Memorial is hoping to avoid another sluggish start this season to make the route to the playoffs that much easier.

“We're trying to do a lot of different things and hopefully we can do it,” junior running back Warren Wand said. “The team has built a lot of confidence and we're working hard. I think we can get there.”

Wand leads a talented cast returning for the Bulldogs, who finished the season 4-7 last season with a first-round exit in the playoffs.

He rushed for more than 1,800 yards, but started the year at quarterback. The Bulldogs, though, will look to either senior Luke Booker or junior Mick Mayerske this season.

“We feel comfortable with both of them,” Memorial coach Justin Merideth said. “They've both paid their dues. Both of those guys are guys that we feel very, very comfortable with. It's just going to be a matter of who's better.”

Whoever wins the quarterback battle will have plenty of options to throw to. Merideth believes this is the deepest group of receivers he's had in four years with the likes of Evan Nicklas, Jared Jones, Donovan Nunley and others.
