Staggs leading hit parade for Westmoore



However, the younger Staggs is more than just a thumper. He’s become a leader on the field for his younger teammates.

“On the field I always like to get the defense hyped up,” Staggs said. “I am always there to help them out. I like to be bring them up if they are hanging their heads. If they’ve done something bad, I coach them up a little bit. Teach them short term memory and leave that play behind.”

Staggs will be on display at 7 p.m. today when the Jaguars travel to Muskogee (2-2) in a district matchup. The Roughers were roughed up last week during a 61-6 loss to Broken Arrow.

Langford is more worried about what his team needs to do, such as cut down on penalties. Penalties have been a problem the first part of the season, including several pass interference calls on the Jags aggressive secondary.

But Staggs doesn’t see that slowing him down. He knows there are big plays to be made out there that can help his team win games.

“I think I would rather have an interception,” Staggs said. “People will remember the big hit, but with the interception you give the offense the ball and a chance to score and get the win.

“But I like the big hits.”
