FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Nobles ready to lead experienced offensive line
Logan Nobles gave his verbal commitment to Oklahoma State this past spring, but the Jenks senior offensive tackle still has goals to achieve in high school before he makes the jump to major college football.
Nobles said he learned a lot from the experience he gained last year as a junior.
“Last year was a lot of fun,” Nobles said. “We got beatdown early in the season last year and it changed me personally. It changed us all personally. We had to learn that it wasn’t just going to happen, we had to go make it happen. It made us all really come together as a team and learn how to take it game-by-game.”
The Jenks senior said the pandemic took its toll on the team, but then they decided to not let it stop them.
“COVID-19 really hit us in the face at first,” Nobles said. “Then, we all just started working together and we worked hard this summer. The offensive line and other position groups started having group chats and talking about plays and then we actually did plays on Zoom calls with each other. There was a lot of learning going on, which was good for the younger guys. I think we handled the situation very well.”
Nobles said he is looking forward to seeing what the offensive line can accomplish in 2020.
“This year is going to be fun for the offensive line,” Nobles said. “We have a little bit more meat upfront this year and a little more athleticism. Our defensive line is challenging us every single day in practice. It is great having a good defensive line to go against. It is making us better. We just have to work hard to keep our concentration and make sure to have fun throughout this process.”
