140. Xzavier Thompson (5-10, 145, Jr.) – Millwood WR/DB

Thompson has led the powerhouse Falcons in receiving over the past two years and was instrumental in the team’s postseason run that ended in a Class 2A title game loss in December. If the Falcons’ fate is to avenge that loss this year, Thompson will have to play a major role in it.

139. Kuhron Ross (5-9, 190, Sr.) – Booker T. Washington RB

Hornets head coach Jonathon Brown believes Ross “has all of the makings of being the next great running back out of Booker T. Washington.”

133. Bryce Graham (6-1, 205, Sr.) – Christian Heritage LB/TE

Bishop put up scorching numbers as a sophomore last fall with 13 touchdowns on the ground and seven through the air. Defensively, he caught four interceptions and returned one for a score, made 58 tackles and caused five tackles for losses.

131. CJ Turnbull (6-1, 170, So.) – Millwood QB

The gunslinger found his groove in the postseason of his debut year leading the Falcons offense to a 13-2 record.

130. Gavin Hooten (5-10, 160, Sr.) – Covington-Douglas RB/DB

One of the best area players on both sides of the ball, Hooten rushed and caught for a combined 1,474 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2022 with 80 tackles and two interceptions.

Matthews will be North’s bell-cow back this year after he ran for 7.4 yards-a-carry in four games last year.

126. Waylon Phillips (6-1, 180, Sr.) – Idabel QB/DB

Phillips threw for over 1,800 yards and 22 touchdowns while rushing for 595 and seven scores as a junior. Look for those numbers to increase this year.

125. Lehmantre’ Olds (6-3, 190, Jr.) – Star-Spencer WR

Olds caught an astounding six touchdowns on only six receptions in 2022 before an injury sidelined him midway through the season.

124. Matt Lund (5-11,165, Sr.) – Elgin RB

Lund led the Owls in rushing with 17 touchdowns on the ground and over 1,400 yards last year and was one half of the most dynamic backfield tandem in the area, along with then-freshman Ritson Meyer.

123. Heston Thompson (5-11, 180, Sr.) – Stillwater

The speedy route-runner and defending Class 6A-II state championship was instrumental in Stillwater’s title run last year as he grabbed 58 passes for 752 yards and 11 house-calls. Those numbers could jump in 2023.

122. Cooper Bates (5-11, 190, Sr.) – Broken Arrow QB

121. McKade Peery (5-11, 165, Sr.) – Stigler QB/DB

Peery has dotted receivers for over 4,096 yards and 47 career touchdowns in two seasons as Stigler’s starter, plus over 1,500 yards and 26 touchdowns on the ground. He’s on pace to reset the Panthers’ all-time mark for touchdowns before the year ends.
