Hogan, Kolar ready for Owasso test

Norman North's high-powered offense goes head-to-head with Owasso's stifling defense.

Through the first three weeks of the Oklahoma high school season, Norman North has lived up to the expectations.

The Timberwolves were thought to go as far as quarterback John Kolar and running back/wide receiver Quan Hogan could take them.

It’s pretty clear that that’s pretty far.

Hogan, a 2016 Scout 300 prospect, has rushed for 225 yards and two touchdowns. But as his role in the offense has increased, so, too, has his production at receiver. Hogan has added 13 catches for 326 yards, a ridiculous 25.1 yards per catch with three touchdowns. Hogan has also thrown for a score.

Kolar, a three-star prospect committed to Oklahoma State, is 44-of-85 for 856 yards with nine touchdowns and one interception.

Norman North lost a thrilling 48-41 decision to Moore Westmoore last week and opens district play with a battle against Owasso.

It’s offense vs. defense in this one. The Rams, led by Tulsa commit Michael Anderson, are 3-0 and have exorcised some demons in the process.

Included in the start is a win against rival Broken Arrow and an impressive 7-6 victory against Jenks. It was the first win for the Rams against the two-time defending state champions since 1993.

In three games, Owasso has allowed just 13 points or 4.3 points per game. Something has to give Friday night in Norman.
