In 2012 and 2013, when the Heavener Wolves and the Spiro Bulldogs meet on the gridiron, it will be a District 3A-8 contest.
However, when they meet at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Spiro's McClain Stadium, it will only be the final preseason scrimmage for the upcoming 2011 season â€” which begins next week.
As long as First-Year Panama Razorbacks Football Coach Brandon Ellis keeps seeing his players improve, he'll be a happy camper. He will really be a happy camper if he sees that improvement happen in tonight's scrimmage against Warner at 6 p.m. at George Ollie Stadium.
â€śWe've made our corrections from the mistakes we saw last week,â€ť Ellis said. â€śThe main focus this week is to learn from our mistakes and not see those mistakes this week. I'm anxious to see how well we pick up on that.â€ť
Admission to tonight's scrimmage will be towels for the Hogs to use during this upcoming season.
