Cougars Come Close But Can't Get 20th Title
12/05/17 -

One could make the case that the Ada High football team was about 13 yards away from victory against No. 3 and unbeaten and perennial powerhouse Heritage Hall during Friday’s Class 4A State championship game at Bill Jensen Field in Choctaw.

But those yards never game. None of them.

The Chargers defense pitched a shutout and did just enough offensively to defeat the Cougars 14-0 to win the state title. It was the third state championship in the past four years for the private school juggernaut. Heritage Hall finished unbeaten at 14-0 and are now 54-2 in the last four seasons.

Meanwhile, Ada had won 10 of its last 11 games entering the championship game and ends a successful 2017 campaign at 10-4, despite missing out on the school’s elusive 20th state title.

“We had a phenomenal year. Our kids did what they do. They compete. We fought to the very end. We ran up against a very, very good football team,” said Ada head coach Chris Berus, in his first season as the head coach of the Cougars.

“We were fortunate enough to play in the very last football game of the year. Thirty other teams would have loved to have done that. I’m very proud of our team,” he continued.

Cougars To Battle For State Championship
12/01/17 -

The Ada High football team will play for the opportunity to bring home the program’s 20th state championship when it takes on Heritage Hall in the Class 4A state title game Friday night at Bill Jensen Field in Choctaw.

It’s been business as usual in preparation for the biggest game in these Ada players’ careers. Ada coaches have been making sure the Cougars don’t get caught up in the moment-with all the fanfare and hype that comes with playing in the last football game of the season.

“Our spirit groups have done a great job of showing our student body what’s the week’s about. We have some great banners up,” said Ada head coach Chris Berus.

“However, the reality is, we have another ballgame to play. We’re trying to keep everything just like’s it’s been for the previous 13 weeks with our schedules, with the way we practice and our routine,” he explained. “We have the opportunity to play for something very, very big but we have a lot of work to do before that time comes.”

The Cougars face a football heavyweight in Heritage Hall. The private school won back-to-back Class 3A state championships in 2014 and 2015 and will be playing in its third state title game in four years Friday night against the Cougars.

Ada Advances To The State Title Game
11/28/17 -

NOBLE — Ada High football supporters young and old, close and far, have waited 17 long years for this opportunity.

The seventh-ranked Cougars punched their ticket to the Class 4A state championship game by defeating No. 8 Bethany 26-22 in a seesaw semifinal contest played Saturday afternoon at Noble High School.

Ada improved to 10-3 and will face unbeaten and second-ranked Heritage Hall (13-0) for a gold ball at 7 p.m. Friday at Choctaw High School. The Chargers advanced after bashing No. 6 Blanchard 37-7 in another 4A semifinal game on Saturday.

It will be the first state championship appearance for the Cougars since 2000, when Ada dropped a 17-7 decision to Carl Albert in that title game. Ada won its 19th state championship in 1996 and has been on the lookout for No. 20 ever since.

“I’m somewhat speechless. We get to play in that final ballgame. We’re going to enjoy this on the bus ride home and start preparing for that last one. It’s a quick turnaround,” Ada head coach Chris Berus said in the midst of a wild postgame celebration.
