When Oak Park-River Forest junior Deandre Enoch was out for two months with a concussion, practices were a tad easier for senior guard Dallis Flowers.

“He’s excellent on defense,” Flowers said. “Me and him are always battling in practice. He gets in my head sometimes. He’s definitely one of the toughest defensive players. It’s real nice having him back. He’s 6-foot-2, can play multiple positions and is excellent on defense.”

Enoch missed eight games with a concussion after accidentally getting kicked in the head by a teammate during practice. Hemade his first start of the season Saturday and made his presence felt in OPRF’s 50-40 non-conference win over host Wheaton Warrenville South.
