After a rough 2-4 start to the season full of injuries, Heritage Hall has been gaining steam heading into Friday’s playoff game at Lone Grove with three straight wins.

And the tough schedule that featured top-ten teams like Clinton, Kingfisher and Davis has the Chargers gaining confidence.

“Obviously it lets you know what it takes to be successful in the playoffs,” Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert said. “We were kind of out-manned there early. In the past it’s been a great indicator, and it still is, on what you need to improve. We’re not going to be intimidated by anybody and that helps, too.”

The Chargers (5-4) have had a stretch of bad luck, losing 12 players to season-ending injuries, including eight starters, this season.

“We’ve got ACLs, concussions, three broken bones and a foot,” Bogert said. “It goes on and on.”

Junior quarterback Connor McGinnis is healthy, though. He’s thrown 16 touchdowns and rushed for five.
