One of the Oklahoma’s premier dual threat quarterbacks in the rising junior class, Weatherford 2020 Jaxon Weatherford has put together a strong season, helping the Eagles start the 2018 season 5-2.
At 6’1, 175-pound, Ratterree has put together a big season, throwing for 975 yards and rushing for 172 yards and three touchdowns.
“This season has been a pretty good season so far. I feel I have played well overall, but could do some better things to help my team,” he says.
Also a baseball standout, Ratterree says he attended a lot of offseason events in that sport, but attended the Southwest Air QB/WR camp and says the experience paid off and helped him improve the spin on his ball. Ratterree says he focused on improving his footwork and trusting his teammates during the offseason and has seen the hard work pay off.
He says his father and coach have been the most influential people in his football career to date as both have encouraged him to pursue his football talents. He has heard from a few Division II schools via letter, but has mostly gone overlooked through the early stages of his high school career.
“All that does is make me want to work harder to get better,” he says. “It fuels me.”

Jaxon — Carson Young– He plays safety for us probably not a better safety in 4A, no joke. He can line up anywhere on offense as a receiver or tight end and can carry the ball.
