Spiro football team to have first scrimmage of season tonight; Bulldogs welcome Okmulgee, Tulsa Webster to town

August 22, 2013

The Spiro Bulldogs football team will get a taste of game-night situations when they have a three-way home scrimmage against Okmulgee and Tulsa Webster at 6 tonight at McClain Stadium.
The biggest thing veteran Spiro coach Chris Bunch is looking for is finding No. 2s to spell his No. 1s.
“We're mainly trying to find some depth,” he said. “We don't have many kids out there to begin with, and we're going to have to find some players who can give our starters some rest.”

Talihina football team to be in road scrimmage tonight against Valliant

August 22, 2013

The Talihina Golden Tigers football team will get its first taste of competitive action tonight when they travel to meet the Valliant Bulldogs at 6 p.m.
Tonight's scrimmage will give Talihina coach Kelly Gravitt a chance to see how his new offensive style will look.
“We've put in a no-huddle offense,” he said. “I know the scrimmage will be a slower pace, but I want to see how we respond. We started putting it in last spring, and we've had eight practices so I'm ready to see how we adapt to it.”

A Razorbacks Revival

August 21, 2013

Growing up in eastern Oklahoma, and especially in LeFlore County, I was blessed to see great high school football teams. Spiro, Heavener, Poteau and Panama were all great, and I would see them all yearly. However, since Talihina is on the other side of the county, I had a hard time fully understanding and apperciating just how good the Golden Tigers were, also.
Over the years, the Razorbacks continued to be in the upper echelon in their classification, and they made numerous deep runs into the playoffs.
