A famous song lyric says, â€śTo dream the impossible dream.â€ť While Poteau High School senior quarterback Wilson Klutts may have thought one of his dreams â€” starting to begin his final season of high school football â€” seemed like it was never going to come true, he knew it would eventually. That dream will become a reality at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Costner Stadium when the Pirates begin the 2011 season entertaining the Checotah Wildcats.
The Panama Razorbacks and the Spiro Bulldogs will get the 2011 LeFlore County high school football season off and running when they meet at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Spiro's McClain Stadium.
The â€™Dogs won last year's match-up 27-14 at Panama's George Ollie Stadium. But Spiro Coach Chris Bunch believes his team will see a different-looking Razorback team tonight.
â€śThey have a new coach (Brandon Ellis) who's doing things different than last year,â€ť Bunch saidâ€ť. We're expecting to see some different stuff from them on defense, and a little bit of some different stuff on offense.â€ť
