Edmond North Rout Reveals Some Talent

After losing 13-0 to Edmond Memorial last week, Edmond North more than made up for the stagnant start with Friday night's 42-3 win over Choctaw, a team that started with a high scoring impressive win over Enid last week.

Both team's kickers are talented and both double up as kickers and punters. Edmond North's Trevor Moore put most of his kickoffs, with the north wind and against, in the end zone for automatic touchbacks.

He was perfect on extra points, but he did miss a 29-yard field goal to end the first half. His kick there was wide left off the right hash, so he pushed it pretty good. His punting, which we didn't see until the second half was not only good distance wise, but he also had excellent hang time.

Choctaw's Jacob McMullen is a big kicker at 6-2, 180 pounds. He was good all night as well hitting a 24-yard field goal for the Jackets only points. He had one touchback on a kickoff and the other to start the second half was a high deep kick that the cover unit was able to make a play on at around the 13-yard line.

McMullen had his leg worn out punting as Choctaw struggled moving the ball, especially the first half. McMullen, who is scheduled to be at OSU on Saturday for the Lamar game, is more a kicker than a punter.

Choctaw quarterback Jonah Llanusa is also going to be at the OSU-Lamar game, said first-year Choctaw head coach Todd Dilbeck. Llanusa is an excellent athlete and had success running the football, but his passing is hot and cold.

He can throw it okay but it isn't always as accurate as you would like. He also did not have a lot of time to throw against North. Llanusa might be at 6-1, 180, a possibility to play receiver or maybe safety in college, He is certainly athletic enough for it.

On the Edmond North side, I will do some more research on a running back, senior Ezel McIntee. He is No. 24 on the field and Friday night he finished with at least 120 rushing yards. He had a huge night and broke off a twisting, turning 50-yard run in the second half to set up his first touchdown run, an 11-yarder.

He had several other big runs, including early in the fourth quarter his second touchdown run. McIntee looks to be 6-1, and right around 200 pounds. He is a senior and mark my words, will play somewhere in college.

There are couple of other Edmond North players to keep an eye on. Offensive lineman Blake Snow and H-back/linebacker Jaylan Jones, both seniors.

On the Choctaw side, check out youngsters No. 20 Sean Thompson, who had at least four bone-jarring tackles on Friday night. Thompson is a 5-9, 165-pound sophomore defensive back. Tyrell Bell is another in the secondary and the 5-9, 190-pound freshman starts and plays well. Big No. 60 Lonell Burris is a 6-2, 250-pound sophomore who starts in the center of the defensive line.
