OFFENSE 

The defending Class 5A state champions have a lot to be excited about coming into the 2019 season. Head coach Mike Corley, in his 16th season at Carl Albert and third as head coach, returns six starters from the offense and nine from the defense. Quarterback Ben Harris (6-0, 185, Jr.), a VYPE Top 100 selectee, has amassed 5,127 yards and 55 touchdowns in his career at Carl Albert. The baseball star and football phenom will lead the Titans in their quest for another gold ball. Javion Hunt (6-0, 190, Jr.) is a big running back with a lot of potential. Last season Hunt had 414 yards on the ground and 10 touchdowns. Look for that number to go up. Jayveion Traylor (6-1, 170, Sr.) caught 22 passes for 337 yards and six TDs from his wideout position. Traylor could become the playmaker in the passing game for the Titans this season. The line must replace the center position, but they do return three starters up front. “We must replace a few key starters but should be athletic enough and with experience returning on defense,” Corley said. “If we continue to improve throughout the year, we should have a chance to be in the mix in Class 5A.” 

DEFENSE

If it’s defense you like, then Carl Albert is defense-rich. They do need to replace a couple of spots on the line, but overall this unit is intact and solid. Reise Collier (6-2, 219, Sr.), a VYPE Top 100 selectee, will start at weakside linebacker. Last season Collier had a breakout year with 175 tackles and four sacks to go with his two interceptions and two forced fumbles. David Peters (6-0, 180, Sr.) is the middle linebacker leading the defense. Last season Peters was stellar with 153 tackles, six sacks and two fumble recoveries. Alphonse Joseph (6-0, 195, Sr.) starts at defensive end giving the Titans an up-field player with good reach and range. Joseph had 98 tackles a year ago with 15 sacks. Montrell Britt (5-10, 190, Sr.) will start at strong safety with Johnathan Mosley (5-10, 185, Sr.) at free safety. Mosley had 88 tackles and two interceptions last year. Rico Windham (5-9, 170, Sr.) grabbed 28 tackles and four interceptions from his corner position a year ago. He also added eight pass breakups. The Titans will stay in the 4-2-5 defense this season and play to their strengths.
