OFFENSE 

Entering his 2nd season, head coach Ryan Breeze is looking forward to starting the 2019 campaign with his team, led by quarterback Eric Wiley (6-4, 210, Sr.). Wiley completed 101-of-232 pass attempts last season for 1,495 yards and 20 touchdowns. Wiley will benefit from a receiving corps that could be the best in Class 6AII. VYPE Top 100 selectee Chateau Reed (6-3, 185, Sr.) will be the main go-to guy in the offense. Reed, a track star at Lawton High, recorded 35 receptions for 785 yards and 11 touchdowns a year ago. On the track, Reed competes in the 200-meters and hit a 23-foot long jump as a junior. “Offensively we should be explosive with five quality receivers and two solid running backs to pick up where Miles Davis left off,” Breeze said. “Wiley is a big quarterback with an extremely strong arm. Reed had over 1,000 all-purpose yards last season and should be poised for a big-time year this fall.” Christian Houston (5-10, 180, Jr.) is a move-in expected to help the team at running back with his power and speed. Devin Simpson (5-8, 165, So.) is a young running back/wideout Breeze calls “an electric player.” The offensive line will feature Josh Inserra (6-3, 255, Sr.), a VYPE Top 100 selectee and a two-year starter at LHS. Breeze said Inserra put on 30 pounds and got faster in the offseason. Romeo Blanton (6-2, 285, Jr.) is a two-year starter and a heavyweight wrestler. The pair are the pillars of the offensive line. 

DEFENSE 

The Wolverine defense only graduated two players from last season, so the expectations are up for this unit. Demarcus Andrews (6-0, 180, Sr.) returns to free safety where he’s recorded 150 career tackles and grabbed four interceptions. Caelab Fuller (6-0, 170, Jr.) notched 30 tackles last season and is the blanket corner the Wolverines need. Fuller will be matched up against the opponent’s best receiver each week. Strong safety Elijah Reyes (6-0, 175, Sr.) has recorded 150 tackles in the last two seasons. Breeze calls Reyes an aggressive player and a good open-field tackler. Jeremiah Magee (5-9, 190, Sr.) is team captain and will move to middle linebacker in 2019. Magee has a knack for finding the football in traffic. Milton Knight (6-1, 265, Sr.) has power and quickness at the tackle spot. Look for Eddie Austin (6-0, 160, Sr.) to make his return to the field after suffering a season-ending injury a year ago. Austin will be a two-year starter for Breeze. Staying healthy is key, but Breeze is excited about the opportunity to compete with this group of players. “If we stay healthy we feel like we have a shot to contend for the district title,” Breeze said. “This group has had a great offseason up to this point and hopefully all the pieces of the puzzle come together to make a deep playoff run.”
