Two former Talihina High School basketball players, Jordan EagleRoad and Tara Hawkins, have been making their presence felt this season on the hardwood.
Watching EagleRoad helps you to understand the impact that he has had for the Vikings the second half of the season. EagleRoad, a 6-2 freshman has the ability to knock down 3-point baskets, drive to the basket and get fouled where he is a very successful free-throw shooter.
Watching Hawkins, a 5-9 freshman wing player, helps you to understand how she has had such a huge impact for the Lady Vikings in so many areas.
OK all of you adrenaline junkies, it's time to fire up your motorcycles and motorbikes, four-wheelers and side-by-sides and get ready to race.
The first race at RaceDay Park Mx is less than a month away. The park is located just six miles northeast of Poteau on Oklahoma State Highway 112.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and veterans.
Have a great weekend.
