Editor’s Choice:

QB: Jamarian Ficklin – Muskogee 

The crafty lefty has a quick release to target receivers in a crowd and the arm strength to complete the deep throw for touchdowns. 

RB: Gunner Dozier – Gore 

The workhorse in the Pirates backfield has the power to run through tackles and the quickness to take it to the house. 

WR – Jayden Bell – Muskogee 

A sure handed receiver that can catch a pass in a crowd and use his speed to turn quick out routes into touchdowns. 

OL – Evan Keefe – Hilldale 

The Air Force Academy commit fuels by dominating play in the trenches. Keefe has recorded 138 pancake blocks the past two years. 

DL – Braylan Roberson – Wagoner 

After totaling 85 tackles including five sacks with agility and strength, the Bulldogs end locks the gate on the edge. 

LB – Alex Shieldnight – Wagoner 

After totaling 75 stops including six sacks plus two interceptions, the 2022 sophomore is already gaining the attention of Division-I college recruiters.

Offensive Lineman: Draven Gragg (Eufaula) – Gragg will be at tackle this season and is a solid blocker up front. 

Linebacker: Kaden Bumgarner (Eufaula) – A three year starter at linebacker, Bumgarner works hard and knows how to make the big plays. 

Defensive Back: Morgan Jones (Stigler) – Registered 69 total tackles and three interceptions last season, Jones will look to increase his production this season.
