Mind Games with Guerin Emig: Rodney Webb coached Jackson Arnold at Denton Guyer, and can attest to Arnold’s gifts as a quarterback and a leader.
With Jackson Arnold poised to make his starting debut as Oklahoma quarterback, I thought it a good idea to bring onto Mind Games a man who knows more about Arnold than the rest of us put together. Rodney Webb coached Arnold to five-star status at Guyer High School in Denton, Texas. He digs into Arnold’s personality and how that translates to OU (3:30) and lists Arnold’s multiple football gifts (9:30). Webb comments on Arnold’s second-half save at BYU Nov. 18 (11:15), on the first time he knew Arnold was a special quarterback (15:00) and on Arnold’s handling of a tumultuous December including Dillon Gabriel’s and Jeff Lebby’s departures (20:00). We turn to Peyton Bowen, the OU safety Webb also coached at Guyer (21:50) before finishing with conversation about Texas high school football and Santa Claus.
