Bixby Spartans football will be one of the best teams in the state again in 2019 when they look to repeat at 6A State champions. One of those players that will be looking to get it done and make his impact is sophomore Nick Wedel, a very aggressive, and fundamentally sound LB, looking to continue the tradition rich position. With some key players graduating in 2018, Wedel will find his time is likely very soon. Does a great job of creating opportunities to make plays and tackles and is a talent for the LB spot.
Wedel, who in 2018 was a backup and that got into most of Bixby’s games in the second half or the 4th quarter gained some valuable experience. Wedel had 17 total tackles and 5 solo tackles.
