With a district title already wrapped up, the No. 2 Ardmore Tigers can focus on giving their huge senior class the proper send off this week.

At 7:30 p.m. Friday night at Noble Stadium, the Tigers will look to do something which hasn’t been done since 2005, complete an undefeated regular season, when they take on the Western Heights Jets for Senior Night.

Ardmore enters this game with a 9-0 overall record and a perfect 6-0 mark in district play. 

Meanwhile, the Jets currently sit second from bottom in district 5A-1 with a 1-5 mark in district play and a 4-5 overall record.

“We’ve talked to the kids about wanting to have a great Senior Night,” Ardmore coach Josh Newby said. “This is about giving them a tribute they deserve. There hasn’t been a 10-0 team since Jermaine Gresham in 2005, and these kids now how special it would be to accomplish something like that.” 

Last week the Jets snapped their five game losing streak, and obtained their first district win of the season with a blowout 52-6 victory against Southeast.

Western Heights racked up 31 points in the first half against the Spartans, and Newby admitted he’s found a couple of players for the Jets who have his attention.

“I think coach (Justin) Mayhew has done a tremendous job with his team,” he said. “Javier Lewis is their sophomore quarterback, and he along with his older brother Carlos are playing at a very high level right now. They are going to be in some unique formations that can confuse a defense. We need to be on our toes and ready for anything. Our kids know on Friday night we need to play at a high level to be successful.” 

Last Friday night brought the Tigers their second straight District 5A-1 championship as they defeated the Noble Bears on the road by a score of 42-20.

Tigers quarterback Tero Roberts sparked the Tigers offense as he torched the Bears for 203 yards rushing on 13 carries. 

Last season when these two teams met in Oklahoma City, it was the Tigers claiming a comfortable 47-7 victory.

The last time Western Heights came to Noble Stadium in 2015, it was Ardmore blanking the Jets by a score of 55-0. 

Ardmore will open the playoffs next Friday night at home, against the winner of the Woodward/Piedmont game which will be played this week
