The Poteau Pirates will have their Senior Night at 7:30 p.m. Friday against the Tulsa Rogers Ropers.
The Ropers were at one time one of the better schools in the state, and I understand that they won several state championships along the way. However, somewhere along the way something happened, and they completely stopped playing football.
STILLWATER â€” The old football adage says, â€śDefense wins championships.â€ť While it wasn't a championship the Oklahoma State Cowboys football team won Saturday afternoon at Boone Pickens Stadium, it was a Big 12 victory they got.
The OSU defense played stellar after the Pokes fell behind 14-0 due to Texas Christian University takeaways as it kept the Horned Frogs scoreless the final 39:22 of the game to win going away by the score of 36-14.
