Last Updated: November 14, 20233.2 min read

Congratulations to the 2023 Moore-Norman Area Football Fans Choice and Editors Choice!!

Fans Choice:

Cruz Campbell – Southmoore

Quarterback – Cruz Campbell (Southmoore)

Cruz led his freshmen team to a regular season freshmen record of 9-0. While he led his freshmen team in the fall of 2022, he saw varsity action in all but two of the Sabercats varsity games. His total 2022 stats were 2,403 passing yards with 29 touchdowns and four interceptions.

Wide Receiver/Tight End – Max Wilson (Norman)

Last year, Wilson registered 43 receptions for 403 yards and added seven touchdowns. He looks to make a bigger impact this season.

Joey Bear – Noble

Running Back – Joey Bear (Noble)

Bear is an outstanding athlete that works hard. He does a great job out of the backfield for Noble.

Offensive Lineman – Cheii Larney (Westmoore)

Cheii played center last year as a sophomore. Even though he was injured halfway through the season which required him to miss the remainder of the season, he was second on the team in pancake blocks.

Defensive Lineman – Gracen Gruver (Moore)

Gracen is a key player for the Lion’s defense. In the trenches upfront, he is a disruptor of the opponent’s offense.

Linebacker – Andrew Holmes (Noble)

In his freshman season a year ago, Holmes got the start at linebacker midway through the year.

Defensive Back – Gage LaGace (Lexington)

Gage is a hard worker that knows what his role is when he steps on the field.

Editors Choice:

QB Cruz Campbell 5-11, 170, So. Southmoore Sabercats

Cruz Campbell had a breakout season as a freshman throwing for more than 2,400 yards in eight games with 29 touchdowns to only four interceptions. Campbell will make the Sabercats better this season and could have a big year. 

RB Matt Evans 6-0, 180, Sr. Westmoore Jaguars

The Westmoore Jaguars will rely on running back Matt Evans who gained over 700 yards on the ground last season. Evans can be an every-down running back that the Jags can lean on to help move the chains.

WR CJ Simon 6-0, 170, Jr. Moore Lions

A perennial VYPE Top 100 player, CJ Simon has everything you want in a big play wide receiver. Simon can stretch the field with his speed or run routes across the middle. His hands are exceptional and his ability to get open separates him from his peers.

OL Harrison Utley 6-4, 290, Sr. Norman North Timberwolves

Norman North offensive lineman Harrison Utley has introduced himself to many of the defensive tackles in Class 6A. Utley has the skills and desire to win nearly every battle in the trench. Will be a next level standout.

DL Javian Council 6-2, 285, Sr. Westmoore Jaguars

With DI talent, Javian Council is a name everyone will know this season. Council is a dominant force up front and tough for opposing offenses to account for and stop. Expect a big season from Council in his last year of prep football.

Behr Boyd – Norman

LB Behr Boyd 5-10, 195, Jr. Norman Tigers

A true inside linebacker, Behr Boyd is a punishing tackler who never shies away from contact. Boyd made over 100 tackles last season with eight sacks and 13 tackles for loss. He is as productive a linebacker as you will find in Class 6A.

Corey Dean – Moore

DB Corey Dean 6-0, 182, Sr. Moore Lions

If you love speed, then look no further than Corey Dean. Dean can post a 21.00 200-meters and hit a 4.3 40-time. Dean also has a 36-inch vertical and loves to face off with an opponent’s best receiver. For he makes his debut on Saturday, Dean wants to help Moore to a playoff berth as a senior.
