Jackson is a beast at the ILB position for us. He has 20 Tackles, 9 tackles for loss, 2 Sacks, 1 INT so far through 2 games. He also has 147 yds, 13 carries, 1 TDs rushing and 135 yds, 6 catches, 2 TDs receiving. He is a great leader and a matchup nightmare for opposing teams.
Putnam City North
Camarion is a talented back that has great vision but can also catch the ball out the back field. Through the first three games he has carried the ball 32 times for 302 yards and has 3 catches for 33 yards. He has 5 touchdown running for 4 and caught another. He has been an Vype preseason 6A-2 Running Back selection.
Tate went from back up QB to QB1 on day nine of Spring Ball. Being a sophomore and no starts, he has handle the play calling well. He is a vital part of our offense and our team. He wants the ball in his hands when the game is on the line. He’s a shifty runner and has a good arm to stretch the field.
Rayne is a great kid and teammate on top of being a great player. The last couple of years he has been our 2nd option carrying the football. Now he is option number 1 and has exceeded expectations to this point in the year
Team Captain and 4 year starter that is a great player and great kid. Reed is starting to become the player that we always knew he was capable of being making plays with his arm and his legs throughout the first 3 weeks. Looking forward for him to continue to grown and run this offense while being a big time defensive back on defense.
Center / LB
At the start of the season Ethan was not penciled in as a starter on either side of the ball. However, a couple injuries forced him into action on both sides and he has shown ability that my staff and I did not see in him. He has been especially surprising at linebacker on defense. He is a great, tough kid! Thanks, Coach Green
RB / ILB
Excellent start. Game one had 100 + yards receiving and rushing.
Braden was crucial in our victory over Kingfisher with 2 TD’s. One of those was for 75 yards. He’s an extremely tough kid that makes a big impact for our team.
Kino has came out late last year(after week 2). He played receiver and corner for us last year and was a decent player. He came to me in the spring and wanted to try and be the qb. He surprised me how well he could throw the ball on the run and he is an outstanding runner. He is much more of a leader this year. We weren’t even considering playing him at qb until he said something.
Starting at runningback and inside linebacker, Michael has made an immediate impact in the first two weeks of play, with 23 carries for 159 yards and racking up 25 tackles with 9 solos.
Brayden has had a great start for us this year. Is only a sophomore and scored 5 touchdowns against Cleveland last week. Really starting to grow up and turn into the player and leader that we need him to be. I really think Brayden has a great chance to be turn into a great player and leader for our football team for the next 3 seasons.
Mason is putting up massive #’s on Offense. Has around 600 all purpose yards through two games.
Mos is a great athlete and individual who is dealing with cystic fibrosis. You would never know that he has this condition. He doesn’t let it get in his way of his goals and dreams of being a competitor. Mos is a four sport athlete with dreams of playing baseball and running track at the next level.
He plays free safety for us and has had double digit tackles in both games so far this year. This is a new position for him, but he is picking it up quickly and making a huge impact on the defensive side of the ball for us.
Ran for 377 Yards and 6 Touchdowns in our rivalry/district game vs Edmond Memorial week 2 of the season.
Racen has been a four year starter for us at quarterback and several defensive positions. Good leader, student and person.
Deante has 4 interceptions in 3 games. He also has 7 receptions for 132 yards with 3 TD’s.
Jax is a junior OL/LB for us. He started on the OL as a sophomore and rotated some at LB but so far in his junior campaign has really stepped up not only as a player but also as a leader. Jax challenged himself this past offseason and really put the work in, gaining around 20lbs. Through three games this season Jax is averaging just over 10 tackles a game while also being an impact player on the offensive line for us. We are excited to see his growth, not only as a player but also his continued growth as a leader and teammate.
1ST YEAR STARTER HAS MANAGED THE OFFENSE WELL MADE SOME REALLY GOOD PLAYS SO FAR WITH HIS ARM AND RUNNING THE BALL AS WELL.
Because of an injury – Wayln was pressed into a starting role and he has become an outstanding player for us. He led us in rushing Week 1 and he continues to get better and better.
Going into the season, Jakobi was going to be our starting running back and safety and was expected to have a standout year. As the season got closer he ended up becoming our starting quarterback as well as safety and has done a great job adapting and leading in his new role.
Sir’Michael has demonstrated exceptional resilience and skill on the field. Despite facing adversity of battling concussions last year, his performance this year has been nothing short of remarkable. With 4 interceptions and numerous successful breakups, he has showcased keen awareness, quick reflexes, and strategic positioning. His ability to read plays and anticipate the movements of wide receivers is a testament to his football IQ. Additionally, his knack for disrupting passes highlights his commitment to defending his territory. Overall, Sir (as we call him) contributions in the secondary have been invaluable, providing a crucial defensive presence that significantly impacts the game.
Always brings and great work ethic and plays hard. He runs with a purpose on both sides of the ball.
Jackson Weibling and Mark Bishop
OL/DL and RB/WR/DB
Jackson has been a rock for us, been a dominating blocker and gap stuffer on D. Mark has been excellent, scored 8 touchdowns in the first 2 games, has been quality at both running and catching the ball as well as defensively and on special teams.
Jayden Milsap almost lost his life in 2020 from Covid. He was hospitalized in ICU. Now, he has been a 2 year starter for us and a leader on our team. Great kid that has overcome near death to thriving.
Hunter is a Sr that plays multiple positions and handles all of our special teams as far as kicker, punter, x-pt and return man. He has been a solid player for the Bulldogs for 3 years and also plays basketball and baseball where he plays an important role on both of those teams all while being a very solid student in the classroom.
He has been a good piece for us so far. We run him often and like to throw him the ball. He has also played very well in the defensive back field with a pick-six vs. DCLA. Ashton has had to overcome a lot to be in the position he is in.
He is a really good football player who has a tremendous feel for the game.
Mount St. Mary
Harrison Tesio is 2 Games into his tenure as Starting QB for MSM as a Junior. He has always had the natural arm talent to be a good QB but this off season Harrison took the needed steps to lead the Rocket offense.

Weston has dedicated himself to the weight room along with several of the others in our program and has made huge strides in developing as a football player. He owns the teams highest squat max and second only two one of his offensive linemen on the bench press. Pound for pound the strongest guy on the team at 165lbs he has the wiggle and power that makes him to watch. He has great quickness and vision for a young back he finished a year ago with over 1,000 yards rushing and is on pace to be well ahead of that this season with the support of his offensive line who also has made great strides in the offseason program. Through first three games he has rushed for 453 yards on 40 Carries and 3 TD’s. He is a good football player and an even better person off the field. Excited to see him and his teammates grow this season and for years to come!
In two games he has rushed for 256 yards and 2 touchdowns, along with a fumble recovery and an interception return for a touchdown. He has been a huge bright spot for Shawnee who broke a 15 game losing streak in Week 2 defeating Ardmore 28-13. Deetrick had a rushing TD and an interception return for a TD.
KEELAN IS A JUNIOR AND HE CAME ON REALLY STRONG DURING THE SECOND HALF OF LAST SEASON. HE IS NOT HUGE, BUT IS A VERY PHYSICAL FOOTBALL PLAYER. ALREADY THROUGH TWO GAMES, HE HAS MADE THE TYPE OF PLAYS WE HOPED HE WOULD BUT NEEDED HIM TO PROVE HIMSELF. HE IS NOW MAKING PLAYS ALL OVER THE FIELD. KEELAN WORKED EXTREMELY HARD THIS SUMMER, SO WHEN IT WAS TIME TO PUT ON THE PADS, OUR STAFF WAS TRULY WAITING AROUND TO SEE HOW THINGS WOULD PLAY OUT FOR HIM. HE HAS EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS .
Anthony worked hard to lose weight during the offseason so that he could move better and also feel better. He lost 87lbs. and now at NG he is actually pursuing down the line and opposing running backs are not able to run between the tackles. Anthony was our MVP vs Elk City.

Caleb is a explosive player that is always around the ball. He is a tremendous competitor and our team feeds off of him.
Gage is very explosive and fast. He can take a 5 yard route to the house.
He is a threat when he gets the ball in his hands. Versatile player who can be a difference maker for the offense.

Otoniel (Junior) Bonilla has turned out to be a really solid running back for us. We thought he’d be our number 2 option to carry the ball, but after the first two games, he has proven to be our bell cow. He has rushed for 217 yards, 8.0 per carry, and 3 touchdowns. Hard worker in the classroom and in the weight room.
Ruben is a great kid! Better football player. He’s humble and respects his teammates coaches and peers!
