Hard hits The Ada Cougars turned in football equipment Monday and headed off to other endeavors. As they stripped off Block As and stripes from their helmets, noseguard Cale Russell, left, noted that the scars and stripes on the front of his helmet from butting heads with opponents were the real battle stripes. At right, senior Brady Bowers goes through the same procedure. Bowers leaves with all-time punting marks for most punts and most yardage in a career.
