QB Maverick Lanphear 6-0, 175, Jr. Barnsdall Panthers

A four-sport standout at Barnsdall, Maverick Lanphear amassed more than 2,700 yards of offense last year with 30 total touchdowns. He also converted 20 2-point conversions. A leader on and off the field, Lanphear will have a big season in 2023.

RB PJ Wallace 6-1, 205, Jr. Bartlesville Bruins

Led the district in rushing last season, PJ Wallace is no joke when it comes to running the football. With 1,731 yards and 14 total touchdowns, Wallace has proven he can answer the call and give the Bruins a fighting chance in any contest.

WR Cooper Fogle 5-6, 140, Sr. Caney Valley Trojans

Try stopping this receiver out of Caney Valley. Cooper Fogle may not dazzle you with size, but he is quick and will run away from and underneath coverage. Last season he had over 500 yards receiving with six TDs.

OL Mason Clark 6-0, 220, Sr. Barnsdall Panthers

As a junior, Mason Clark recorded 30 pancakes to help the Panthers to a 7-4 record. His play is crucial for the team this season to give our QB the opportunity to look downfield. Clark is up for the test.

DL Avery Hitchings 5-11, 240, Jr. Bartlesville Bruins

In the 3-4 scheme the Bruins will run, Avery Hitchings should have a big year. Last season he recorded 14.5 tackles with one forced fumble. Look for this number to increase as Hitchings steps up and takes his place at the table.

LB Noah Wilson 6-4, 240, Sr. Pawhuska Huskies

A throwback type linebacker that the coaching staff loves, Noah Wilson is a physical player who can move for 240-pounds. Wilson can plug the gaps or chase you to the edge, either way he is going to get his man.

DB Brett Eaves 5-11, 170, Sr. Bartlesville Bruins

Tough to find a more productive defensive back in the class. Last season Eaves accounted for 55.5 tackles, 10 passes defended and five interceptions. His ability to spot the ball and make a play separates him from other DBs.
