Edwards started the season at quarterback but moved to running back a month in so that sophomore quarterback Garrett could find the field. Garrett, a sharp passer an effective runner in his own right, allows the Broncos to stretch the field while Edwards provides an explosive punch out of the backfield or in the slot.
It’s a challenge the Timberwolves must gameplan for entering Friday’s contest.
Warren sets school record: Entering the regular season finale against Norman High, there was some chance that Lawton would rest its stars. The third-ranked Wolverines had already locked up the District 6A-4 title and had some injury concerns.
But the Wolverines did play its best, and running back Michael Warren used the opportunity to set a school record in the process. With 237 all-purpose yards, Warren broke a school record for total yards that had stood since 1971 in the Wolverines’ storied program.
Hansen out for season: Edmond Santa Fe snuck into the playoffs from District 6A-4 and will open the playoffs at Midwest City this week, but the Wolves will do so without star quarterback and OU commit Justice Hansen.
Hansen suffered a high ankle sprain in a loss to Lawton a month ago. He was initially expected to return quickly but instead won’t take the field again until he arrives in Norman.
