A catalyst for Muskogee’s explosive offense that averaged over 40 points a game last year, Ficklin continues to impress college scouts as he starts his third season under center for the Roughers. Last year this dual threat QB passed for 2803 yards and 38 touchdowns while running for 308 yards and another six scores. His career passing total now stands at 5131 yards and 56 TDs. Working behind a big, experienced line in 2023, this VYPE TOP 100 choice should enjoy another stellar year for Muskogee.
KALE CHARBONEAU (6-0, 215, JR.) – WAGONER
After leading the Bulldogs to the Class 4A state title in 2022, Charboneau returns to try and help Wagoner go back-to-back. A proven dual threat, Charboneau passed for 2082 yards and 18 touchdowns with a 63 percent completion rate and rushed 145 times for 609 yards and 11 scores. A VYPE TOP 100 pick, Charboneau is a driven competitor. “He believes every time he walks on the field, he’s going to win,” said head coach Dale Condict.
MCKADE PEERY(5-11, 165, SR.) – STIGLER
A VYPE TOP 100 selectee, Peery begins his third season at the QB spot for the Panthers where he has amassed 4096 career passing yards with 49 touchdowns and 1588 yards rushing for another 26 scores. Peery will be looking to break Stigler’s all time total touchdown record as he closes out his career in 2023 and hopes to lead the Panthers to their ninth straight playoff appearance.
JACE JACKSON (6-3, 185, SR.) – WARNER
Starting his third year at quarterback, Jackson totaled 1006 yards passing last year and added another 500 on the ground for a total of 21 touchdowns in 2022. He’s a VYPE TOP 100 pick and a multi-sport athlete who also plays safety in the Eagles defensive backfield. Jace Jackson is also a standout in the classroom where he carries a 4.0 GPA and scored a 29 on his ACT test.
JACOB JONES(6-3, 190, SR.) – CHECOTAH
Though the Wildcats struggled as a team last year, Jones still threw for 1460 yards and 14 touchdowns and with the return of talented receivers Elijah Thomas and Jaydin Bray, the Wildcat offense will continue to present a big play threat every time the ball is snapped in 2023.
