OFFENSE 

The move to 6AI has proven to be a difficult one for the Enid Plainsmen, but one thing about any team coming out of Enid: they are going to play hard and not give up. Enter first-year head coach Rashaun Woods. Woods, the former Oklahoma State All-American, brings some excitement and enthusiasm to the Plainsmen locker room. One playmaker the Plainsmen will look to is Jaden Dimaricut (5-4, 165, Sr.). The wideout is electric with the ball and has tremendous speed in the open field. Two guys are competing for the right to throw Dimaricut the ball; Blake Priest (6-2, 185, Jr.) and Maddux Mayberry (5-10, 175, Jr.). Both guys are capable of getting the job done. In the trenches, the Plainsmen feature a VYPE Top 100 player in Kaleb Stanley (6-3, 320, Sr.). The guard is a proven commodity on this offense and will help keep the pressure off the QBs. Tavion Beebe (5-10, 165, Jr.) is another wide receiver capable of making big plays. Also look for Trent Mitchell (5-8, 205, Jr.) at running back. Woods expects steady improvement from his offensive unit. It appears the Plainsmen will utilize a spread philosophy to try to keep defenses guessing. Jeff Horrocks will serve as offensive coordinator, Kyle Davis is coaching the OL, Dusty Quarles will handle the tight ends and Sean Mills will coach running backs. 

DEFENSE 

Four players return to the lineup from last year’s squad and defensive coordinator Weston McGill is glad to have some senior leadership this season. Dylan Gau (6-2, 205, Sr.) starts at middle linebacker, giving the Plainsmen defense an old-school thumper in the middle. CJ Adams (6-3, 255, Jr.) is tough to handle on the edge. His power and speed will challenge most offensive tackles. His play must be to contain the edge and pressure the passer. Stanley will go both ways, starting at noseguard on defense. Tyrese Neal (5-11, 170, Sr.) will start at corner with Dimaricut playing a corner spot or free safety. Johnny Hargis will coach safeties, Marques Odom will coach corners and Kareem Sears will coach the defensive line.
