Hogan leads Timberwolves past Lions

MOORE — Quan Hogan has had some big nights in his brief career at Norman North. The sophomore has been a key figure in helping the Timberwolves replace last year’s state title contending team.

However, Hogan has never had a performance like he displayed Friday during North’s 49-14 dismantling of Moore at Moore Stadium. The speedy tailback reached the end zone six times after entering the game with nine touchdowns.

“We just came out and fought hard,” Hogan said. “I have to give all the credit to my linemen. They have been working hard, getting on their blocks and stuff. Today, everything was just there and we were hitting everything.”

To go along with his six touchdowns, Hogan finished the night with 112 rushing yards and 96 receiving yards. When it was all said and done, even his coach was impressed with with the numbers Hogan compiled.

“I didn’t even know that,” North coach Wade Standley said. “Wow. I knew it was a bunch.”

With both Edmond North and Putnam City North losing Friday, the Timberwolves (6-3, 5-1) are once again all alone in first place in District 6A-3 and have locked up a spot in the postseason. But they will need a win next week over Lawton Eisenhower to claim a district title.

“Our focus each week is take care of the T-Wolves,” Standley said. “I’ve said all along every one of these district games are equally important. That is certainly true for next week. We have to come out, bring our A-game, and make sure we play our best football Friday night against Lawton Ike.”

The Lions’ (1-8, 1-4) job was made even tougher having to play without the services of tailback Ryan Lujan. The senior injured his MCL during practice this week and will miss the rest of the season. They lost another four players to injuries during the game.
