Ada will be ready to pass and run at Tecumseh


Ada —

Perhaps hidden in all the second-half fireworks that Ada set off against Mannford is a defense that pitched a second-half shutout.

“Defensively, we’re still missing too many tackles, but I thought we played pretty well for the most part,” Weber said. “Until their last series, I think we had only given up 17 yards of total offense in the second half.”

Scouting Tecumseh

The Savages, who have just one returning starter on the team, have gotten off to a rough 1-3 start — defeating Little Axe 36-29 on the road in Week 3. Tecumseh has been outscored 124-14 in losses to Noble (at home) and on road trips to state heavyweights Seminole and Douglass.

But Weber says he can see improvement from the young Savages from week to week.

“They lost a really strong senior class last year that helped them make the playoffs. They’re going through the bumps and bruises of having to play a lot of young kids,” he said. “It was a team you would have liked to caught earlier in the year because they were new. Now these kids have four weeks and two scrimmages of getting to play on Friday nights. You can tell by watching their films they are getting better each week.”

Tecumseh has a senior quarterback in Micah Sanchez and a pair of talented sophomore running backs in Walter Crawley and Jordan Brown.

“They have another quarterback that can throw the ball really well and have some receivers that can catch it. That’s what they do best,” Weber said. “They’re more run-heavy, but in my opinion what they do best is throw the ball. They get in a four-wide (formation) and their kid is really accurate and their receivers can catch it.”

Douglass blanked Tecumseh 54-0 last week in Oklahoma City. But Weber said that final score was misleading.
