NORMAN — Norman High’s Jakcob Dean knew making the transition from wide receiver to quarterback wouldn’t be easy. The increased preparation and ability to read the defensive coverage are things that can take players years to master.

So how’s Dean handling the transition after one intrasquad scrimmage?

He couldn’t be doing much better, at least according to his coaching staff.

Dean received praise for his first performance of the preseason, where he was able to make several big plays and keep the offense moving against a solid Tiger defense.

“He had a really good outing today,” coach Greg Nation said after the scrimmage. “It was a really nice job for the first scrimmage.”
