He had a fumble recovery and a 38-yard interception return, which were two of the Jaguars' three forced turnovers. Coach Lorenzo Williams was complementary of James' performance.
"James played a helluva game," Williams said. "He lit it up tonight, man."
2. Westmoore scores in bevy of ways
The Jaguars found the end zone in myriad ways Thursday.
Rushing and passing scores, the interception return and even a punt return for a score. Andrew Metcalf returned an Enid punt 63 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. He took a pitch on a reverse during the return and took it up the right sideline for the score.
Metcalf was one of seven Westmoore players to score a touchdown.
3. Spread the wealth
Westmoore junior quarterback Dayton Wolfe had no issue finding receivers.
Wolfe completed 16-of-22 passes to go along with three touchdowns, but only Dylen Taylor and Tysin Edwards had more than two catches. Eight Jaguars caught passes against Enid, with Edwards hauling in two touchdowns and Kabrian Grant catching the first one of the game.
Wolfe said he thought the coaches did a good job throughout the week preparing a game plan to get multiple players involved.
4. Trentavious Mitchell bright spot for Enid
Although Enid didn't score a touchdown, senior running back Trentavious Mitchell had a strong performance rushing the ball.
He had 18 carries for 81 yards, and he wasn't easy to take down. On more than one occassion, Mitchell drug defenders for several yards before being tackled.

Enid (0-4, 0-1 District 6A-I-1) returns home to face Jenks (2-1), which battles Broken Arrow on Friday. First-year coach Rashaun Woods remains in search of his first win with the Plainsmen.
Westmoore (4-0, 1-0) travels to Edmond Memorial (0-3), which plays Friday at Edmond Santa Fe. With a victory next week, it would be the Jaguars second 5-0 start in three seasons.
