August 8, 2015

Since this week will be the first time since May football players will go through ordinary drills, most of our local coaches are just trying to make sure the players know the basics.
“We’re tired of the weight room. We’re ready to get out on the field and start learning,” Heavener coach Sam Hembree said. “We’re going to work really hard and getting really good at a few things. Until we get good at a few things, we’re not going to elaborate [into more difficult stuff]. We’re going to try to get better running it than they [the opposition] are at stopping it.”

Local football trio, Talihina coach participate Friday night in All-State Game

August 4, 2015

The East team lost Friday’s night’s All-State football game to the West, but that didn’t seem to matter to standouts from Poteau and Talihina, who played in the game at Union-Tuttle Stadium in Tulsa.
Neither did it to Kelly Gravitt, the Talihina coach, who coached the squad in its 27-14 loss.
Gravitt got to have a bonus as two of his players starred in the game. Quarterback Alan Lockhart and defensive end Tucker Trowbridge impacted the game with some big plays.
Poteau lineman Mark Garner also just happened to be playing on the line each time the East got a touchdown.
