Heritage Hall readying for tough test at Clinton
Class 3A No. 1 Heritage Hall may have easy disposed of rival Casady in its season opener last week, but a much tougher test awaits Friday.
Barry J. Sanders, Sterling Shepard and the star-studded Chargers play at Clinton, ranked No. 4 in Class 4A, on Friday, facing a perennial power that is loaded with talent.
“It’s gonna be a tough one out there,” Chargers coach Andy Bogert said. “They’ve got a lot of speed at the skill positions, and their secondary is really good.
“And playing in the Tornado Bowl is intimidating in itself,” he added about Clinton’s well-known and unique stadium.
Clinton is coming off a 40-6, Week 1 win over its rival, Weatherford. Senior running back Jalee Rainge rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns in the win.
Is Heritage Hall mentally ready for such a challenge after last week’s easy, 49-8 win, which saw the Chargers up 42-0 early in the second quarter before pulling starters?
“They will be ready for this,” Bogert said. “They know Clinton’s tradition. We’ve very much stressed it.
