Going undefeated in a season is a big accomplishment for any sports team. BA Football finished their season with an impressive record of 10-0. They are ranked number one in the state, and thirty-second in the nation.

“Going undefeated was a goal of ours, but it was kind of way down the list,” Coach David Alexander said. “You just expect your players to learn and get better, and they just kept raising the bar every week.”

Along with going undefeated, senior Noah Cortes, broke two rushing records in the process. He broke Jamal Shaw’s record of 3,894 career rushing yards with an eighty-yard touchdown run, bringing him to a total of 3,895. He also beat Shaw’s other record of most rushing touchdowns in a season with 33.

“It is a blessing to have the team help me achieve my childhood goals,” Cortes said. “It took hours of training, speed work, lifting, and lots of dedication.”

To continue their success through the finals, the Tigers will have to play together as a team.

“Knowing we are the best team in the state helps a lot with confidence,” junior Myles Slusher said. “We are all committed to this team and nobody is being selfish, which is why we have been so successful.”

As the Tigers head into the finals, coaches are motivating their players to continue working hard and practicing well so they will continue to have success.

“As long as everyone does their job we can’t lose,” senior Logan Matthews said. “We have great leadership throughout the team and great coaches that motivate us every week to get better.”

The Tigers will play Jenks in the finals on Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. The game will be played at Tulsa University, and tickets will be sold for $7.
