OFFENSE

Lawton’s football team is a well-oiled winning machine. They now maintain a record of eight consecutive winning seasons in Class 6A-Division II. They are going for nine this year and are gearing up to compete for a state title. 

The Wolverines offense will have seven returning starters on the field this fall. The offensive line will be a strength that the team will rely on heavily to open doors for the possibilities of great running and passing game. Hector Becerra (6-2, 275, Sr.) will be essential on the line as an offensive tackle. Becerra has already received his first D1 offer from Iowa State University and is a VYPE Top 100 selection for the 2018 season. Xavier Johnson (5-10, 222, Sr.) will also be a key player on the O-line as a guard. Snapping the ball at the center will be Romeo Blanton (6-0, 230, So.), who shows a lot of potential as a sophomore starting on the varsity squad.

Leading the run game with plenty of speed will be Miles Davis (5-9, 175, Sr.), returning to start at running back. Davis, another VYPE Top 100 pick, has also received offers from University of Central Oklahoma, East Central University, Northeastern State University, and most recently picked up his first D1 offer from Arkansas Pine Bluff University. So far Davis has accumulated 313 carries over 2,546 yards for a total of 33 touchdowns. Watch for big things from him as he looks to impress during his senior season. Eddy Austin (5-11, 160, Jr.) will also have the chance to make an impact on the offense this year as a go-to wide receiver.

DEFENSE

Linebackers may prove to be a strong point for the Wolverines defense this year. Setting the pace for the six defensive returning starters is linebacker Sam Harris (6-0, 200, Sr.). Harris stepped up his game and his responsibilities last season when he took on a starting role, and as a senior this year he will remain consistent. Working alongside Harris to deliver some hard hits and extra protection are fellow linebackers Quen Bryant (5-10, 192, Sr.) and Colin Hooper (5-9, 165, Jr.). 

Another defensive player to watch for is Demarcus Andrews (5-11, 173, Jr.) as a free safety. Andrews is a versatile player whose athleticism and ability to read the ball will surely come in handy for the Wolverines.
