T-Wolves’ linebackers back on field

NORMAN — While Norman North quarterback David Cornwell’s injury drew most of the attention, he wasn’t the only Timberwolf to miss last week’s scrimmage against Edmond Santa Fe. Both Mason Volk and Chris Briley missed time with minor injuries as well, slowing down an already-young North defense.

But unlike Cornwell, who may miss tonight’s scrimmage with a sprained ankle, both juniors are expected to be on the field tonight.

“They’ve both been practicing this week, so they should be fine to go,” coach Wade Standley said.

Volk is expected to bolster a linebacking corps that had trouble containing the speed of Edmond Santa Fe quarterback and OU commit Justice Hansen, while Briley will step in as a defensive back.

Scrimmage set against Southmoore: North travels to Mustang for tonight’s scrimmage, with drills beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Eight teams will be at the event, and the T-Wolves will take part in rapid-fire drills to start before meeting Southmoore for a 6 p.m. two-quarter scrimmage.

Tigers working on conditioning: Norman High will scrimmage on Friday at the fourth annual Top of the World scrimmage at Harve Collins Field. Coach Greg Nation expects the Tigers to be in better shape than they were for last week’s opening scrimmage in Bixby.

“We went out last week and competed well, but I was slightly disappointed in our conditioning and our hustle, which goes back to the conditioning,” he said. “It needs to improve. Other teams, hurry-up offenses, won’t slow down for you on the field. Your conditioning is a big part of your success, so that’s something we’re focusing on this week.”

Kinsey signs with Wichita State: Norman North pitcher Brad Kinsey was a pivotal figure in the Timberwolves’ run to the state championship game last season, and he announced this week where he’ll take his talents after graduating from North.
