Fourth-ranked Cougars look to stay unbeaten in District 4A-2

(Continued)

Ada —

“Their idea is to try and make you eat the football on offense, control the line of scrimmage and play great defense on the other side of the ball,” Weber said.

Junior Sean Davis will start at quarterback, but he shared a few carries with senior starting wide receiver Austin Head in the loss to Douglass.

“They’re mainly just asking (Davis) to run the offense. They haven’t asked him to throw the football a lot, but that doesn’t mean they can’t,” Weber said. “No. 7 (Head) looks like their athlete guy they can move around wherever they need him.”

A bright spot for the Warriors against Douglass was junior Brandon Straessle’s 90-yard interception return for a touchdown.

Short Week

With one less day to prepare, things have been a bit different around the Ada football camp this week.

“It’s a short week for everybody. It obviously gets us out of our routine a little bit,” Weber said. “We’re trying our best to stick as close to our practice routine as we can. “

On Wednesday, Ada began practicing at 1 p.m. instead of its usual 2:45 time slot. Today, the Cougars will meet for a 9 a.m. team breakfast, have a short practice-walkthrough after that and then meet again at 3:30 p.m. to begin the 116-mile trip to Glenpool.

“We’ll practice real light tomorrow before we go play. Practicing the day you play is a little bit different,” Weber said.

Due to the rainy weather and we practice field, the Cougars have been inside the Dunham Indoor Facility the entire week.

After tonight’s game, the Ada coaching staff will turn players loose until practice on Monday.

“We’re completing our 10th week of practice and it’s a long season so we’re going to give the kids the rest of the break off,” Weber said.
