Consistency has been the story of the season for Tuttle so far. At 4-0, the Tigers have scored between 40-44 points each game and have not allowed more than 13.
Friday night's 41-3 win over Newcastle was more of the same, with the running back duo of Morgan Neal and Jesse Gregory helping to produce 260 rushing yards on just 31 carries and three touchdowns between them.
While the Tigers aren't passing a lot, they're making it count when they do.
“We've had a high completion percentage and a high ratio of touchdowns when we throw,” coach Phil Koons said. “We know people are gonna crowd the line of scrimmage on us, so we've got to be effective when we throw the ball.”
Defensively, the Tigers have been getting good leadership from players like Dawson Bassett, Jon-Michael Hollarn and Tanner Brannon.
Despite the easy work the Tigers have made of their schedule through four weeks, Koons isn't going to let his players relax.
“I'm a little bit of a perfectionist,” he said with a laugh. “I'm not satisfied with winning a few games early in the year. I want us to win all of them. Class 3A is as competitive a class as there is, so we know there will be some good teams there at the end. We want to be one of them.”
ADA QB SETS PASSING RECORD
For a team with as much tradition as Ada, setting a school record is a big deal.
To break a record previously held by a McBroom is even bigger.
Cougars quarterback Wyatt Robson broke Larry McBroom's school record for career passing yardage in Friday night's 56-7 win over Mannford.
Robson completed 13 of 15 passes for 278 yards and four touchdowns in the win, playing only in the first half. He passed McBroom on a 65-yard touchdown pass to Easton Pingleton.
Robson now has 3,499 career passing yards, surpassing McBroom's 3,320.
The record was more than 40 years old; McBroom played for the Cougars in 1968-70.
McBroom, whose father Craig was a longtime coach for Ada, went on to coach the Cougars from 1980-95 and 2000-03.
MUSTANG DUO SELECTED FOR ALL-STAR GAME
Mustang linemen Jared Chance and Chandler Rhodes were selected for the Blue-Gray National High School Football Classic in Tampa Bay next January.
Rhodes was selected as an offensive lineman and Chance as a defensive lineman. The players were selected for the game from a combine in Arlington, Texas, earlier this year.
The game will be played at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Raymond James Stadium.
