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.
