Senior linebacker says undefeated start to season huge for Poteau

September 15, 2011

After the Poteau Pirates routed the Idabel Warriors 42-7 last week for their first road football win of the 2011 season, it put the Pirates at 2-0. Such a start could not have been any better, according to senior outside linebacker Jake McMillin.
“It's a big deal,” he said. “I like it. Things are way better than they were last year. Last year, I felt like we weren't going to have a chance to be any good. This year, I feel something coming on. We just have to keep working hard each week, and hope for the best — maybe even the playoffs. We just need to keep getting better each week.”

Time to hang stands, check trail cameras

September 15, 2011

One of my former students, Wyatt McBride, and his grandfather, Floyd Smith, had them one heck of a day of catfishing back on Father’s Day.
They caught a good mess of fish, so they had a fish fry. There is nothing like taking kids fishing or hunting, and I will never get tired of that smile that they have when they are successful. Thanks for bringing those pictures to me, Wyatt. I like getting pictures of people (especially kids) in the paper, so if any of you readers have pictures, send them to me.
