Sometimes when one looks at all sides of an issue, one side seems to stick out. That was verly likely the case for Scott Gregory.
Gregory, who had been coaching the Heavener Wolves for the past seven seasons, was hired at Monday night's Poteau Public Schools Board of Education meeting as the new coach of the Poteau Lady Pirates.
With the fact that Gregory lives in Poteau will make things easier for him with the new job.
However, he is also excited about just how good the Lady Pirates can be.

First of all, I forgot to wish my mother, JoAnn Mattox, and my wife, Jenny, a Happy Mother's Day last week. For some strange reason, I thought Mother's Day was this Sunday instead of last Sunday â€” I was a week behind.
Sometimes I wonder if my elevator goes all the way to the penthouse? Anyway, Happy Belated Mother's Day, ladies.
FYI â€” I now keep a huge calendar on the kitchen table, and write everything down so I just don't forget anything any more.
