The Ardmore Tigers will host Prime Prep Academy on Sept. 20 in a Red River gridiron rivalry game. The Dallas-based charter school is coached by NFL Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders.
Prime Prep Academy will take the place of Gainesville in week 3 of the season, the Tigers' final non-district contest. The game with Gainesville was cancelled because of a difference in start dates for the Oklahoma Secondary School Athletic Association and Texas' University Interscholastic League.
Ardmore athletic director/head football Coach Doug Wendel credited former University of Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys head coach Barry Switzer for his role in making the game a reality.
