There will be no lack of offense when the Arkoma Mustangs take the field this fall.

Coach Mark Weatherton’s team returns plenty of team speed as Tyree Noldon and Talon Woolsey will be in the backfield. Noldon rushed for 729 yards while adding more than 500 yards receiving and accounted for 14 touchdowns.

The Mustangs passing game received a huge boost when Tanner Steward transferred back from Hackett. Steward broke Arkoma’s receiving records as a sophomore then caught 38 passes for 1,005 yards and nine touchdowns at Hackett last season.

Six starters return to the defense and none are more important than Nathon Willis. The junior recorded more than 80 tackles last season while Noldon had 70 stops.
