By my count — and I could have missed one because it seemed like he was all over the field all the time — senior Jake Shannon played in six different spots for the Ada High School football team during the Cougars’ sweet Week 1 win over old rival Ardmore.
After the game, I caught up with Shannon and asked him about being Mr. Versatile. The first thing that he talked about was his surprise appearance as the team’s punter early in the second quarter.
That’s about the only thing he did that didn’t work out like he had planned.
“I kicked a 6-yard punt, and I never went back to punt again,” Shannon reminded fans who may have missed it.
All joking aside, Shannon was a warrior for the Cougars against Ardmore. He lined up at receiver, where he hauled in three catches for 70 yards. He played well in the secondary as a cornerback.
