Heritage Hall Keeps Up Routine Ahead Of 3A Playoff Ruling
OKLAHOMA CITY - Several 3A Oklahoma High School teams are limbo due to the legal fight over the controversial ending of a state quarterfinal matchup.
This week, a judge will decide if Douglass High will get to replay their game against Locust Grove, the winner last month's game.
Heritage Hall High School is waiting to play the winner of that matchup.
“I've been coaching for 28 years and nothing like this has ever happened,” said Heritage Hall Head Coach Andy Bogert, who plans to shorten practices this week and crank up the intensity.
“I feel like we are going to be just fine being fired up for the practice and the game,” said Heritage Hall senior QB Connor McGinnis.
The school is basically following their same routine as week, preparing for Locust Grove. On Monday, players and coaches watched Locust Grove game film, just like the previous Monday.
If the game gets postponed again, or if Heritage Hall advances to the finals, they'd practice during the week of finals.
“I know administrators aren't going to happy with that situation at all,” says Bogert.
