Poteau freshmen look to stay undefeated for prep career Thursday night at McAlester

August 29, 2012

As I was approached by our sports editor, David Seeley, to write a feature story about the Poteau High School freshman team, I was at first not sure that I wanted to tackle the story. After all, the sports adages say that you do not talk to a pitcher when he has a no hitter going or you do not talk to a batter who has a hitting streak in process.
You see, this freshmen football class has been playing together since they were members of the Bandit, traveling team, seventh-eighth grade football teams, and to this point in time they have never lost a game when they have played together.
