Ada-Douglass take four Friday

Ada — Round IV of the series between two Oklahoma prep legends shapes up for Friday night at Norris Field — Ada vs. Oklahoma City Douglass in the fourth meeting of the series, surprisingly all in this century. Ada leads, 2-1.

2013 and 2012

Shaking off a loss to McLoud last week, head coach Matt Weber’s Cougars (7-2, 5-1) are ready for their Class 4A-2 district championship battle with Douglass (8-1, 6-0).

In the Oklahoma City All-City Preview in the preseason, the big city paper showed No. 2 for Douglass taking down a Millwood runner. No. 2 is also shown rumbling out of the Trojan backfield with a handoff. Same guy, of course. It’s Deondre Clark in a repeat of last year, just more of the LSU commit on offense.

“He is not a run-over-you type like you would suspect, with his size and all (6-3, 240). He cuts, jumps, anything to get around you,” Weber said.

While Chris High and Chavez Wyatt topped 1,000 yards for Douglass a year ago, the current combo of Brandon Gaddis and Clark has churned out around 800 yards to keep the Trojans grounded. 

Quarterback Patrick McKaufman is one Trojan seeking redemption from a year ago. The lanky sophomore was under tremendous pressure when called to action as a freshman, and he wound up firing the interception to Dakota Blackwell that ultimately saved the game for the Cougars, 26-21.

Manning McKaufman’s blind side at left tackle is another D-1 prospect in 6-5 and 270 senior Mildren Montgomery, up from 6-4 and 230 a year ago and boasting a seven-foot wingspan.

After two seasons of anchoring the offensive line, he is one of the most sought-after offensive linemen in the state this year. Montgomery is a June commit to Texas Tech.

Clark has already collected one state championship ring from 2010 as one of only two freshmen to play with the varsity.
