With his big brother watching, you knew it was going to be a special night for Moore (Okla.) Southmoore quarterback Casey Thompson.
But not sure anybody expected what we saw. Thompson, a Class of 2018 prospect, accounted for seven touchdowns as Southmoore earned an impressive 60-41 victory against Owasso on Thursday night.
It is the second seven-touchdown outing of the season for Thompson, who now has 25 total touchdowns through five games.
“I honestly kind of did,” said Thompson about seeing this type of night coming. “We had a great week of practice and felt like we had a real good game plan. We wanted to send a message and knew we had the athletes and offensive line to do it.”
Thompson was not distracted with his older brother, Utah quarterback Kendal Thompson, being in attendance. The younger Thompson threw for five first half touchdowns and then ran for two more scores in the second half.
“It was exciting,” Thompson said. “He’s back in town so that’s always a good time. He said he was going to come down. I’m glad he came.”
Thompson was 22-of-31 passing for 264 yards with the five touchdowns, while also rushing for 193 yards on 16 carries, punctuating the game with an 82-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
His partner in crime for the first part of the night was 2017 athlete Quindon Lewis. A Scout 300 prospect, Lewis was sensational on this night with four catches for 94 yards and three touchdowns.
He showed his versatile skill set being able to leap in the air for his first touchdown to go with a great finger-tip grab for his second one.
“They all mean the same,” Lewis said. “It’s six points. As long as they go up on the scoreboard, that’s all that matters to me.”
Now 5-0, this weekend becomes about recruiting for both top prospects. Thompson is making another visit to Norman to watch Oklahoma against West Virginia. He said the family will be returning to Norman. Of course, Kendal was once a Sooners quarterback before transferring to the Utes following the 2013 season.
Lewis, who has already visited OU and Oklahoma State this season, is going to visit TCU this weekend.
