Poteau Pirates making passing grades in all aspects as district portion of season begins on Friday

September 18, 2012

The non-District 4A-4 portion of season has came to an end, and I really believe the Poteau Pirates should be awarded passing grades in all areas. In fact, I believe they should make the Honor Roll. Here's my grades for each group.
Offensive line — A. This group of student athletes are the motor that causes the Poteau Pirates offense to roll. I think I'll make that an A+ due to the depth. The first line is very strong and the subs that fill in are improving. The coaches are not afraid to make changes in personnel.

Tulsa football team continues to look sharp

September 18, 2012

TULSA — After a tough season-opening loss Sept. 1 on the road against Iowa State, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane football team has made it 2-for-2 in home games, and both in dominating fashion.
After winning their home opener Sept. 8 against Tulane, the Golden Hurricane looked even more impressive in a 66-16 rout of the Nicholls State Colonels Saturday night at Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium.
