Bokoshe Tigers football coach Bryan Murray has said if his team can ever be at full strength that there were some upcoming games in which he liked his team's chances.
The first of those games could very well be tonight when the Tigers entertain the Midway Chargers at 7:30 p.m. in a District C-4 contest.
For the first time since the tailgate party that took place on the first day of football practice in August, the Heavener Wolves will finally get to play a game at Harvey Stadium, which they will do at 7:30 tonight in their District 3A-8 contest against the Roland Rangers.
The game was to have been their homecoming game, but it has been changed to Oct. 17 when the Wolves entertain the Spiro Bulldogs.

The Pocola Indians football team has had a rough two-game road trip the last two weeks, losing 29-20 to the Quinton Savages and 59-0 to the Vian Wolverines in the District 2A-6 opener.
Now, the Indians (1-3 overall, 0-1 in district play) will return to the friendly confines of John Carter Field for a homecoming district game against the Hugo Buffaloes (4-0, 0-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The Indians are a wounded bunch right now, which does not help the team's efforts at the present time.
On Sept. 23, 2011, the Spiro Bulldogs went to Idabel and were stunned by the homestanding Warriors 23-6. The same two teams will meet at the same site at 7:30 p.m. Friday when the â€™Dogs (3-1, 1-0 in District 3A-8) visit the Warriors (0-4, 0-1).
Balloons may be the main attraction, but there will plenty to do on the ground as well at this year's Poteau Balloon Fest, scheduled Oct. 18-19.
â€œWe have worked very hard to have activities and events for people of all ages," said Chris Ward, Poteau Chamber of Commerce board chairman.
This yearâ€™s event will include more than 30 teams competing in the KCBS BBQ Oklahoma State Championship Cook-Off, according to Chamber CEO Karen Wages.

Carl Albert State College Vikings basketball coach Mike St. John would like to announce his 2013-14 signing class.
Tuesday was the opening day of deer archery and bear archery season. If you have not bought your bear tag, you are out of luck because you must buy it before archery season starts.
I do not agree with us having to buy a tag by a certain date to kill a bear, but that is the rule so I will not buy one. I may try to hunt a bear in the future, and the wildlife department is giving us more of an opportunity to kill one â€” but this year is not the year that I will hunt them.
