Jags still searching for No. 1 signal caller as they head into final week

EDMOND — Billy Langford had planned to make his decision. The Westmoore coach wanted to see his team go through their first scrimmage before he decided who had won the starting quarterback spot.

Well, the scrimmage took place Thursday at Edmond Santa Fe against the Wolves, Norman North and Lawton Eisenhower, and Langford said he may have to postpone making his choice.

“Quarterback-wise we are still not where we need to be as far as making the right decisions, making them quickly,” Langford said, “So that’s something we are going to have to watch film and correct.”

Westmoore defeated Eisenhower 28-12 in the half scrimmage. Quarterbacks Bryson Lee and Devon Navarro each led the Jaguars’ offense on two touchdown-scoring drivers.

Lee hit passes across the middle and in the flat to keep drives moving before Kieron Hardrick took it in the end zone twice. Navarro took more chances down the field, including a deep touchdown to junior Dahu Green.

However, Langford was still not completely satisfied. The Jags will scrimmage one last time Thursday when they travel to Mustang for the Mustang Preview. As of right now, he has no plans to name the starter before then.

“I may have to push it back and look at film,” Langford said. “See what kind of decisions they made and whether they were the right ones. Just because you complete a ball doesn’t mean it was to the right guy at the right time.”

While most of the attention at the scrimmage focused on the quarterbacks for North and Santa Fe, it was Westmoore’s defense that may have been the most impressive. Whether it was in the rapid fire round robin or the half scrimmage, they were in attack mode.

“I feel like we played pretty well. We came out in the rapid fire drills,” linebacker Matt Day said. “Defense and offense both killed it. We did what we needed to do. I’m pretty impressed.”
