A look back at 2011 in LeFlore County athletics — and my JH County Tournament All-Tournament Team

January 13, 2012

As I look at 2011 in the rearview mirror, I, too, am proud of the exploits of champions of LeFlore County. Kudos to the Talihina Golden Tigers and their Class 2A state basketball championship. Most people don’t realize they were only four points away from being a three-time state champion.
Tyler Tustin gained the second state championship for the Pirates in wrestling, and he has two more years to wrestle.

Alumni football is coming to Poteau. Gridiron Alumni is planning several full contact alumni football games.
Gridiron Alumni travels the nation pitting old football rivals against each other one more time. Players are needed to sign up, and the first 40 players on each team get to play.
The team that gets 30 people registered first gets home-field advantage.
Last year, hundreds of players and thousands of fans swarmed stadiums to watch their home town heroes strap it on one more time.
This year, Gridiron Alumni would like to bring alumni football to the whole state of Oklahoma.
