Chisholm seeks consistency

ENID, Okla. — Senior Tabor Charles has the early lead in the Chisholm quarterback race after Friday’s scrimmage with Okeene.

Charles threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Bryce Stewart for the Longhorns’ only score. Dakota Theilen and Bailey Cross also are in the mix.

“There’s still some good competition,’’ said Longhorns coach Joey Reinart about the quarterback job, “but Tabor is putting his mark on it as far as running the offense consistently.’’

Consistency is what the Longhorns are looking for now.

“We executed fairly well on offense and defense most of the evening,’’ Reinart said. “At times, we matched their physical play. We just need to figure out how to do those things over a set of plays where we can get into the end zone more than one time.’’

Reinart said the Longhorns still are trying to get their best 11 players on the field offensively and defensively.

Chisholm will host Mooreland at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The junior high teams will play at 5:30.


Myers: Pioneer showing progress

Pioneer “showed some progress’’ in a scrimmage against Yale Friday, coach Kurt Myers said.

The Mustangs scored on a 60-yard pass from Jett Jobe to Nicholas Denker.

“But we weren’t worried about the score,’’ Myers said, “just about the execution of the offense and the defense. I thought the quarterback play was really good and the receivers really looked good. The secondary looked good at times.’’

The quarterback race between Jobe, Colin Mason and Austin Rogers still is open. Myers said the final decision is “getting closer.’’

Charles Clardy, Dalton Snow, Denker and Blake Gabriel all played well on defense, Myers said.

The Mustangs will scrimmage at Newkirk at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

GHS defense shows aggressiveness

Garber’s defense played “with some aggressiveness that we haven’t seen in year or two,’’ in a multi-team scrimmage Friday with Davenport, Agra, Destiny Christian and Macomb, Wolverines coach Mark Harmon said.

“We played real well,’’ Harmon said.

Harmon had said in his preseason questionnaire the major weakness for Garber had been a “lack of physicalness.’’

Quarterback Jordan Avantz and running back-linebacker Trenton Harmon had good nights as did wideouts Tyler Schnaithman and Dallas Hunt.

 “The important thing was that we got to play a lot of people on defense,’’ said coach Harmon.

The Wolverines will host Cherokee in a 6:30 p.m. scrimmage Thursday.

Garber has a new opening game opponent. Wichita World Of Life School, which was to play Garber on Aug. 31, has dropped football. They are being replaced by Waynoka, which had an open date.

“That worked out good for both of us,’’ coach Harmon said. “We were lucky to get that worked out.’’
