Norman North looking good for next year

Norman North football lost what most people would consider a very talented graduating class after the 2009 football season. But although many think North will have a down year, those involved in Timberwolves football will tell you they're looking solid.

Last year, seniors like Beau Blankership, Nathan Badger, Bryce Easley, Cody Hughes, and Tyler Tettleton led a Norman North football team that was top-heavy with senior talent. Next year those players will be gone.

The Timberwolves went (9-3) last season and the Norman community is buzzing with whispers that the team's fortunes will change with the upcoming season.

"It's hard to try and replace players like Beau, as a leader as well as a player," Head Coach Lance Manning said.

Norman North will kick their season off against inner-city rival Norman High School next year, a game that will be a measuring stick for the Timberwolves, as well as the Tigers.
