The 2014 summer football season officially started on Monday as the Mustang Broncos kicked off their 2014 team camp with 11 other teams from across the state.

Broken Arrow, Southmoore, Edmond Santa Fe, Bixby, Midwest City, Lawton MacArthur, Deer Creek, Bishop McGuinness, Altus, Cashion and Dibble joined the Broncos in officially kicking off the summer season.

Here are a few notes from the first day of camp:

Garrett to Parker

Mustang quarter, Chandler Garrett, stands at least 6’6” in cleats and has the arm strength to go along with his frame. His short passes had zip and his long passes had touch on Monday. He also seemed to favor David Parker as his go-to guy. Parker is lean and is a great athlete with great hands. If he and Garrett can get on the same page this summer, they could be dangerous this fall.

Edmond Santa Fe’s Keaton Torre

Torre and Garrett stood out on Monday as the best two passers tossing with the first teams in seven-on-seven drills. He got experience last year when Justice Hansen went down and doesn’t seem to lack confidence. He also throws a really good deep ball.

Broken Arrow

One thing noticeable about east-side teams is their size. Broken Arrow’s offensive line is massive. And they have at least two running backs that stood out as bulldozers during light scrimmages on Monday. Mustang fell to Broken Arrow in the second round of the playoffs last year, but will not face them this year unless it’s a playoff rematch.

A little tussle

The camp got off to a hard-hitting start. The teams were wearing just shoulder pads, helmets and leg pads under shorts, however, that didn’t stop them from getting their licks. There was plenty of trash talk, plenty of cheering from the sidelines and plenty of intensity.

The intensity even reached a boiling point twice between Mustang and Midwest City on Monday. The two teams got into two ‘yelling matches’ with each other and had to be separated during their end-of-day scrimmage. Football season is here.

Cooper

Former Mustang Bronco receiver and current NFL player, Josh Cooper, visited the first day of camp. He played four years at Oklahoma State and is currently working out in his hometown.
