OFFENSE

In his first season as head coach of the Sequoyah Claremore Eagles, Rob Gilbreath is looking to spread the ball around and allow his offensive line to control the line of scrimmage.

“We want even distribution of the ball on offense with good O-line play,” said coach Gilbreath.

One big reason coach Gilbreath is excited to get this offensive line working as one unit is Levi Gill (6-3, 300, Jr.). Gill will start at tackle giving the Eagles someone strong enough to stop the bull rush and lock up defensive ends on the outside. Lucus Rumsey (6-0, 250, Sr.) and Bryce Blue (6-0, 230, Sr.) join Gill up front. Add Hunter Hayes (5-10, 240, Sr.) and you have the nucleus of what could develop into the best O-line in Class 3A. Daike Cummings (6-0, 175, Sr.) and Mason Hassell (5-10, 150, Sr.) are two talented receivers the Eagles will look to use as they attempt to stretch the field and open things up for the run game. Hassel comes from a family of great athletes and has worked to live up to the family name. Question marks at quarterback were addressed during spring ball, but the final verdict will come in August.

DEFENSE

Cummings and Hassel get the start at corner on the defensive side of the ball. Both guys have a nose for the ball and bring good speed to the field. Wyatt Townsend (5-10, 160, Sr.) joins Cummings and Hassell in the secondary, starting at safety. The defense will depend on a few underclassmen as they look to fill holes left by graduation.

“Defensively we want good D-line play and our secondary should be solid,” said coach Gilbreath.
