Newcomers aiming to fill void left by North’s departing class

(Continued)

NORMAN —

On the offensive side, the line that will protect Cornwell is full of young talent. Included in that group is senior center Jacob Martin and sophomore Walker Reed, both of whom stand 6-4 or taller and weigh 280 pounds.

“As we get into the season there will be a lot of guys getting experience together, and you want them to develop as a unit,” Standley said. “The focus is to get bigger, faster, stronger and come together as a team.”

Rounding out the new faces on offense is sophomore running back Quan Hogan, who was impressive in a few scattered appearances as a freshman, and senior Nick Basquine, a receiver who was a key part of North’s baseball team’s run to the state title game last season. Standley said both have been impressive and figure to be key pieces when the season kicks off in a month.
