Reinart: CHS QB battle remains open

ENID, Okla. — Tonight’s scrimmage at Okeene could help establish Chisholm’s No. 1 quarterback, Longhorns coach Joey Reinart said.

Taggard Brown, Bailey Cross and Dakota Theilen remain in a three-way battle to replace the graduated Tabor Charles.

“Sooner or later, one of them has to seize the opportunity,’’ Reinart said. “You never know how things will work out.’’

The large number of players (close to 50) has brought out the competition in the Chisholm camp, Reinart said, especially in the backfield and at wide receiver.

“They are getting after it pretty hard,’’ Reinart said. “It’s more about going out there and doing it with a purpose and being effective once you get there.’’

Watonga will be joining the two longtime scrimmage rivals.

“They are both going to give us multiple looks,’’ Reinart said. “It’s something we’re going to have to adjust to differently. It should be a good test of how effective we are, execution wise. We just want to make sure we get as many reps as we can for everyone.’’

Reinart said the Longhorns have a few players “dinged up.’’ Linebacker John Voss and end Jonathan Starr have been slowed by injuries.

“We’ll know more about ourselves,’’ Reinart said. “You really can’t evaluate your players until they have gone against someone else.’’

Chisholm goes to Mooreland for a scrimmage next week.

Mason established as Pioneer QB

Colin Mason has established himself as the No. 1 quarterback for Pioneer in the preseason. Mason will be  under center when PHS entertains Yale in a scrimmage tonight.

The junior varsities go at 6, followed by the varsities at 6:30.

“He’s picking things up really well,’’ said Pioneer coach Kurt Myers. “He’s stepping up and showing some good leadership.’’

Myers calls the scrimmage “more of an organized practice.’’

“We just want to execute our stuff and not make any mistakes,’’ he said. “The good thing is we can get some film on kids and be able to hit somebody else. Yale will be a good test for us.’’

Pioneer, Myers said, has been hit with some season-ending injuries, but for the most part everything has been upbeat.

“The kids have been picking up everything and our attitude has been fantastic,’’ Myers said.

“Out new assistants have brought a lot of energy. Our practices have been upbeat a lot because of them.’’

Sophomore Buco Grey, who didn’t play last season, has been a surprise at wide receiver-defensive back. Running back Chase Corder and defensive end Charles Clardy have stood out so far.
