These are the top seven players in the Moore-Norman area hub, ranked by VYPE editors regardless of position.
#1 Duncan Parham II – OLB/DE – Senior – Norman North
Size, technique, and sound play are three factors of many that makes Parham one of the top players in the state. Relentless pursuit and determination are why he’s on everyone’s list.
#2 Bai Jobe – LB/TE – Junior – Community Christian
One of the best unknowns in a while, Jobe only has a season of football under his belt, but for those who can project talent, this kid tops the charts as a major DI prospect.
#3 Marcus Dockins Jr. – ATH – Senior – Moore
An electric athlete that must be spied by a defense at all times. Dockins brings a high level of athleticism to the field for the Lions and should be a big part of the offense.
#4 Viliami Makahununiu – OT – Senior – Norman
Very few players can match the toughness of Makahununiu on the offensive line. The recruiting is picking up thanks to his skill set and ability to move people.
#5 Gavin Frakes – QB – Senior – Norman North
Another Top 100 player with huge upside. Frakes is dangerous with the ball in his hands and will keep Norman North in games. Has a chance for a big season.
#6 Noah Peters – QB – Senior – Southmoore
Look for the offense to open up this season as Peters will attempt to improve on the solid season he had as a junior. This QB can throw or run the ball.
#7 Mykel Patterson-McDonald – DB – Sophomore – Westmoore
One of the best young defensive backs in the state. Still growing at 5-foot-10 as a sophomore, look for Patterson-McDonald to have a big season for the Jags.
Based on fan voting in the Moore-Norman area hub, here are the top players at seven positions.
Quarterback: Holden Kee-Norman High
Kee will lead the Tiger offense this season. He has worked hard and is ready to show what he has.
Wide Receiver/Tight End: Marcus Dockins Jr. – Moore
A great athlete, Marcus led the team in rushing and receiving yards a year ago. (See Editor’s Choice)
Running Back: Chapman McKown – Norman North
He can be tough to bring down with the rock in his hands.
Offensive Lineman: Jax Rumsey – Moore
Rumsey will be an impact player on the line this season.
Linebacker: Bryson Crawley – Noble
A strong player and a high football IQ make Crawley a tough defender.
Defensive Back: Saxon Scantlin – Moore
Scantlin will patrol the secondary and shut down any attempts by the opponents.
Defensive Lineman: Tyler Lorenzen – Moore
A great kid on and off the field, Tyler will be a tough one to battle on the defensive line.
