The greatest Poteau Pirates football game — ever

August 31, 2012

It was the fall of 1995. All anyone was talking about all week long was the upcoming Friday night Poteau Pirates' football game against the top-ranked and undefeated Ada Cougars, who featured a tight end who would later play in the National Football League — Jeremy Shockey. Also, Brandon Daniels was the Ada quarterback.
Both teams were 7-0, and it was dubbed as the No. 1 high school game in the state for that week.

Panama Razorbacks will be lone show in county tonight; Hogs entertain Gore Pirates in 2012 season opener

August 30, 2012

There's something special about opening night. For the Panama Razorbacks, it will be doubly exciting.
First, they will begin the 2012 season at 7:30 p.m. tonight at George Ollie Stadium against the Gore Pirates. Secondly, since the game is tonight, unlike most of the state teams' openers being Friday night, it means that there should be quite a crowd tonight.
“Everybody is excited,” said Brandon Ellis, Panama's second-year coach. “It's the first game of the year, and it's on a Thursday night. We're expecting a full house. We're ready to go.”

Poteau senior lineman anxious for season opener

August 30, 2012

For Poteau Pirate senior lineman Troy Barnett, Friday night cannot get here fast enough. That's the season-opening game at 7:30 p.m. Friday on the road against the Durant Lions. However, on the other hand, he doesn't want his final Pirate football season to rush by, either.
“There's parts of me that would wish it would slow down a little bit because it's my senior year,” Barnett said. “Other than that, I'm having a hard time just getting ready for it because I'm so pumped up for it — ready for it to be here.”
