A rough way for 2011 LeFlore County football season to end

November 19, 2011

The 2011 LeFlore County high school football season end in a rough way on Nov. 11. The county had two teams, the Heavener Wolves in Class 2A and the Arkoma Mustangs in Class C.
Unfortunately for both teams, it was a one-and-done trip to the postseason as the Wolves lost 47-7 in Stroud to Class 2A's third-ranked Tigers, while the eighth-ranked Mustangs suffered a 54-8 loss to No. 6 Covington-Douglas.
But as I reflect on the 2011 LeFlore County high school football season, there will be a lot of things which stand out.
