OFFENSE 

A six-year veteran on staff at Oologah, Chad Weeks takes over as head coach entering the 2019 season. Expectations are always high at Oologah and Weeks is ready to get the team back to winning double digits each season. Bonner Pennington (6-3, 250, Sr.) is one player that brings leadership to the field for the Mustangs. Pennington will start on the offensive line. His play — as well as that of the rest of the offensive line — is key for Oologah. Quarterback Blake Salt (5-9, 170, Jr.) takes over an offense that looks to run multiple sets. Salt will need to find guys like Travis Rogers (6-3, 230, Sr.) at tight end or Brennan Davis (6-2, 175, Sr.) at wide receiver. Both are big targets and should be easy to find. Also look for Cooper Christian (5-7, 150, Sr.) in the passing game. Running back Zac Wright (5-9, 170, Sr.) could get a heavy dose this season if the Mustangs are going to be balanced on offense.

DEFENSE 

Rocky Duncan (6-1, 215, Sr.) and Chase Gibson (6-2, 190, Sr.) are two defensive linemen looking to cause chaos on the other side of the line of scrimmage. Konner Davis (5-9, 150, Sr.) shores up the secondary while Zac Huddleston (6-1, 225, Sr.) starts at linebacker. “We expect great effort and execution on both sides of the ball,” Weeks said. Oologah plans to run the 4-2-5 defense. Jeremy Gray will serve as the defensive coordinator with Adam Anderson coaching wide receivers and inside linebackers, Scott Doss coaching running backs, Justin Ratcliff coaching tight ends and outside linebackers, Jordan Barrett coaching quarterbacks and George Peters coaching the defensive line.
