Ada welcomes Santa Fe South

But no matter the foe, Cougars must focus on improving each week

Ada —

Whether the Ada Cougars are lining up to play a 1-4 Santa Fe South squads — which they are this Friday at Norris Field — or have a team like No. 3 Clinton in their sights, head coach Matt Weber says the preparation is mostly the same.

The hope is that after any contest against — whomever the opponent might be —Ada (No. 5 in Class 4A, 4-1) will be a better team than it was before the game started.

“We talk to them about becoming a better team each day and every week. So far each week our kids have approached it the right way.  They’ve handled it right up to this point, and I hope we’re mature enough to continue that the rest of the year,” Weber said.

“That really is, believe it or not, how we approach every game. We get our basic game plan ... but after that we do very little worrying about our opponent because we’re going to do what we do on both sides of the ball,” he explained “We’re not going to come up with a whole new offense or a whole new defense to stop a team. We’re going to do what we do. That’s our approach all the time ... ever since I’ve been a head coach.”

Sante Fe South has a Week 3 win over Seeworth Academy (a team that is 0-3 and has been outscore 124-0). But the Saint Bernards have endured four lopsided losses. 

Little Axe blanked SFS 44-0 in Week 1 before Cache crushed the Saint Bernards 39-6 in Week 2. In District 4A-2 play Harrah blitzed SFS 69-0 while McLoud handed the relatively new football team a 40-6 setback.

Last year, Ada went on the road and demolished the Saint Bernards 55-6 (after piling up a 48-0 halftime lead).

SFS head coach James Whitley had a positive outlook about his team before the season.
