Poteau, Arkoma seek state semifinal berths tonight; Talihina goes for spot in state quarterfinals

November 22, 2013

Then there were three. Last week, LeFlore County had five of its eight high school football teams make the playoffs. Three of them made it to tonight's second week of postseason play.
Poteau (Class 4A) and Arkoma (Class C) will each face perennial football powers tonight as the Pirates meet Clinton and the Mustangs face Shattuck. Both teams will seek a berth in next week's state semifinals.
The Talihina Golden Tigers will meet Hominy, which handed them a 58-12 loss in the Class A state semifinals in 1982 at Doc Robinson Stadium — which will be the site of tonight's second-round playoff game.

Bandit team's bake sale — and a happy Thanksgiving to you all

November 22, 2013

My fifth-grade Bandit League football team had a bake sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday outside Atwood's. I went for a while to help the ladies set up, and keep an eye on my players.
After we got everything going, my wife, Jenny, wanted me to go look at some Christmas lights inside the store. I grabbed a bag of popcorn and a few roasted peanuts on my way out — I mean, life is good.

3-2-1 Go! Gun season is on like Donkey Kong

November 21, 2013

The long-awaited deer gun season is finally here. Hunters all across the state — and especially here in LeFlore County — have been patiently waiting an entire year for this weekend to come around again. Our necks have been swelling up, and our trigger fingers have been itching. We all want to bring home the prize to feed our families.
I know the kids at school are ready for a week off, too. Many of them plan to do some hunting, probably not all of the days, but there will be plenty that make memories in the woods with their family and friends.
Have a great week!

Senior linemen want to end home career with quarterfinal win over Clinton Red Tornadoes on Friday

November 21, 2013

For the 14 senior players, they got to do something Friday night they had probably only dreamed of doing — play in a Class 4A playoff game. They did just that, beating Cleveland 48-7 in the opening round of the playoffs.
“It was a great feeling,” senior lineman Stephen Smith said. “We worked really hard for the win. We played to the top of our game. It felt good coming out with a win.”

Poteau golfer signs with UALR

November 20, 2013

In the past three high school golf seasons, Poteau senior Hannah Ward has won the last two Class 4A State Tournaments after being 4A state runner-up as a freshman, not to mention all the other junior golf honors that have come her way. So, it was really not a question of if Ward would sign to play college golf, but where.
Ward answered that question as she signed a golf letter of intent with the University of Arkansas-Little Rock on Wednesday morning in a signing ceremony at the high school.
“I'm very excited,” Ward said. “I've always wanted to play Division I golf.”
