Former Talihina Golden Tiger Jordan EagleRoad,  a 6-1 shooting guard has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for the Carl Albert State College Vikings for the 2013-14 season.
Carl Albert being close to Talihina was a huge factor in EagleRoad choosing CASC.

Dove season is the 'kickoff' for fall hunting for this year

August 8, 2013

Dove season is just around the corner, so I decided to give everyone a little background information on these birds that we love to hunt in the early fall. I know that Wister’s Jesse Hammons and his dad, Bud, will be out after those beautiful birds come Sept. 1. They always take Jesse’s little brothers, Will and Joe, along, and make it a whole family affair. They will be making memories that last a lifetime.
