The Norman Transcript

T-Wolves in command



The Huskies entered the game having allowed the fewest points of any team in Class 6A and hadn’t given up more than 13 to anyone except for then-No. 4 Edmond Santa Fe and Oklahoma commit Justice Hansen. But North jumped on them from the start, and Kolar was a major reason why, throwing for 302 yards and a touchdown without an interception and displayed his versatility by adding two more on the ground.

“I’ve been preparing all week for this,” Kolar said after the game. “People have been telling me it’s my time to have to have a big game, so I just went out there and did my best.”

His best — along with copious amounts of help from his teammates including three touchdowns from Payton Prince and 183 receiving yards from Nick Basquine — was more than enough to take down the toughest game left on North’s schedule. With the win, the T-Wolves are the only undefeated team left in District 6A-3, and have three games left against teams with a combined record of 6-15. While the race is far from over, and this week’s contest against Putnam City North looms large, North is firmly in control of its own destiny.
