Poteau Pirates begin 2013 against Durant at home

September 6, 2013

Finally, opening night is here for the Poteau Pirates football team, which will begin the 2013 season at 7:30 tonight against the Durant Lions at Costner Stadium.
“If you're a football player or a coach, you're always excited about game No. 1,” Poteau second-year coach Greg Werner said. “A lot of work goes into game No. 1. It's time to start playing games. You're tired of practicing, and looking at each other. It's time to start looking at somebody else.”

Spiro entertains Vian tonight in home opener to start season

September 6, 2013

A pair of rich traditional football powers will meet tonight when the Vian Wolverines travel to meet the Spiro Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. at McClain Stadium.
Last year, the Wolverines handled the ’Dogs, but Spiro coach Chris Bunch hopes his team is better prepared tonight.
“They're still good,” he said. “Hopefully, we're better. I didn't think we were ready to play them last year. We just didn't get prepared for them. I think that was the difference last year. I think if we're prepared for them, and get lined up in the right spots, things will be better for us than they were last year.”

September 6, 2013

The Talihina Golden Tigers are primed to get the 2013 season off and going when they entertain the Wilburton Diggers at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Doc Robinson Stadium.
“Every week, we're getting better,” Talihina coach Kelly Gravitt said. “I feel pretty good about where we're at. We had a real good scrimmage [last Friday night] against Vian and Roland. They were good teams, and I was very pleased with how we did against those two teams. As long as we don't regress, we should be a good football team.”

Bokoshe Tigers ready for season opener Friday night at Oaks

September 6, 2013

After some struggling seasons, there seems to be some renewed enthusiasm for Bokoshe Tigers football.
The season for the Tigers will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday as they hit the road to face the Oaks Warriors.
“I can tell they're ready to play,” first-year Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray said. “They're wanting to go hit someone else. I can't see them not being up for this. They've really worked hard in the off-season and in practice. They're ready to prove to people that they're better. We're looking forward to Friday night.”
