Freshman makes impact at North: Norman North’s Marcus Dickinson produced one of the best freshman introductions in some time last week, coming up with two big games for the Timberwolves.
Dickinson was forced to wait an extra week to start the season after North’s football team’s run to the state championship pushed the season state date back a week. But he made up for time lost in games against Moore and Westmoore.
