What Poteau sophomore runinng back Roger Barcheers has done his first two years has been rather awesome, especially since he was the Freshman of the Year on the 2012 All-Arklahoma Football Team.
However, Barcheers was in the spotlight, somewhat that is, for his ability to hold the ball for Poteau senior place-kicker Jace Pitchford. Thanks to the right hold, Pitchford kicked the game-winning field goal with four seconds left to lift the Pirates to a 10-7 Class 4A state quarterfinal victory over defending state champion Clinton at Costner Stadium.
Last year at this time, the Talihina Golden Tigers football team was preparing to meet the Cashion Wildcats in the Class A state quarterfinals at Doc Robinson Stadium. The âCats came to âThe Pitâ and left 43-24 victors to make the state semifinals.
A year later, in the same spot of the Class A playoffs, the same two teams will do battle as the Golden Tigers (12-0) will travel to meet the Wildcats (10-2) at 7:30 tonight in Cashion.
