ARDMORE, OK -- The Ardmore Tigers are all set for battle Friday night. They're top dogs right now in 5A-1 and on a five game winning streak.
That should be extended to six as they're hosting one win Capitol Hill.
Last season head coach Doug Wendel worked some magic winning Weeks 7-through-9 and somehow making the playoffs.
Now returning virtually that entire team, the Tigers seem to have earned their stripes.
"Maturity, experience, last year we had no experience and very little maturity because we didn't have any, we were so young. This year we've got a lot of returning players, you could find examples that would not agree with me, but by and large good seasons happen because you have good talent and you have good senior leadership. We've got great senior leader ship and I think we've got great talent. At least at spots on the field," Wendel said.
Kick-off from Noble Stadium at 7:30.
