One of 6A’s most explosive offenses last season sets the stage for the Timberwolves to again be a team that puts up yardage and points in bunches in 2017.

VYPE Top 100 selection Drake Stoops (5-11, 180, Sr.) can go zero-to-100 really quick and last year caught 86 passes for 1,536 yards and 20 touchdowns. He also made an impact on special teams with two touchdowns in the return game.

Drake’s brother Isaac (5-11, 175, Sr.) also will be a major contributor at the other receiver spot. Isaac shouldn’t be considered any less of a threat than Drake, though, as he also has a Division I offer from Army and is expected to pick up more offers as the year goes on.

Quarterback Ryan Peoples (6-0, 190, Sr.) will be throwing the ball to the talented Stoops tandem on the outside this year.

Up front, look for Jake Coleman (6-4, 280, Sr.) and Racey Jarrett (6-0, 270, Sr.) to lead Norman North’s offensive line.

Tight end Mitchell Ross (5-11, 195, Sr.) also will play a key role blocking in the run game and as a threat in the passing game.


With only three returning starters on defense, Norman North will need to have several leaders step up this year that people may not be familiar with.

Last season the Timberwolves allowed just 22.9 points per game, so those new leaders will have big shoes to fill as they assume larger roles this season.

North has one of the most talented defensive lineman in the state in Cole Mashburn (6-3, 240, Jr.), returning from a strong 2016 campaign. Last season Mashburn, a VYPE Top 100 selection, recorded 31 tackles, six tackles for loss and four sacks.

Cornerback Christian Flenory (6-1, 185, Sr.) will be another key returning playmaker for the Timberwolves’ defense. In 2016, Flenory recorded 52 tackles and picked off four passes.

Look for Doug Collins (6-1, 190, Sr.) to start at either safety or outside linebacker and be like a coach on the field, while Van Holden (5-11, 190, Sr.), Sincere Jackson (6-1, 220, Sr.) and Blake Yohn (6-0, 215, Jr.) all see time at linebacker this year. Jackson and Yohn may also play defensive end at times this season, depending on how the Timberwolves line up.
