Levi Kel, the junior, offers another experienced option in the backfield and will also operate more in the fullback position; however, each player is considered, more or less, a running back and will operate as one, hopefully defense-confusing, unit.
"We've gone to more of a zone read," Cobble said. "When we use a two or three back set, that's when we can get our best athletes on the field. Especially with Cade [Morris] back there and he has multiple options, there are just a lot of different threats on the field."
Last, but certainly not least, is Dalvin Madison, a sophomore who has already seen plenty of varsity action. Last season, he combined with Davis for 207 yards on the ground. While he will get a few more carries this year, he's still young and learning plenty from his football elders.
While it's a tough way to start a season regardless, the running game in particular will be thrown into the spotlight when Chickasha meets Anadarko. The Warriors boast one of the best ground attacks in the state, with highly rated R.J. Sink leading the way. As far as matching up against such a potent offense, Davis said the running back corps plans to handle it by not worrying too much.
"We can't lose the sense of who we are," Davis said. "We've got our game, and we can't do too much differently just because they're Anadarko."
