This past high school football season, Poteau senior quarterback Jace Pitchford did his part to help the Pirates get to the Class 4A state title game â€” and earn the Pirates a silver ball for the trophy case. Now, he's got the chance to do something similar at the next level.
Pitchford signed a letter of intent with Arkansas Tech on Wednesday afternoon in a ceremony inside the high school.
Last spring, Deven Bond was part of the 3,200-meter relay team along with Haley Griggs, Colleen Peterson and Kandace Standridge that placed third at the Class 5A State Meet in Yukon. Last fall, Bond became an All-Stater as she was eighth at the Class 4A State Meet in Edmond. After running for the Lady Pirates this spring in the 2014 track season, Bond will take her talent to the next level.
Poteau's senior runner signed cross country/track letter of intent with the University of Central Oklahoma on Wednesday afternoon in a ceremony inside the high school.
SPIRO â€” The first two of LeFlore County's three high school football players to sign letters of intent to play college ball on National Signing Day took place Wednesday morning as Spiro Bulldog cornerbacks Trevon Mitchem and Malik Walker signed with Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in a ceremony inside the Spiro Multipurpose Gym.
Mother Nature was the big winner Tuesday night as she snowed out all of the Tuesday high school slate of basketball for LeFlore County.
Games snowed out were Stilwell at Poteau, Arkoma at Panama, Wister at Cameron, Leflore at Whitesboro, Pocola at Talihina, Keota at Bokoshe, Wilburton at Heavener, Howe at McCurtain and Spiro at Muldrow.
The Pocola-Talihina and Wilburton-Heavener games have been rescheduled for 6:30 p.m. (girls) and 8 p.m. (boys) on Thursday night. Talihina's originally-scheduled Thursday night match-up at home with Broken Bow has been postponed and will not be made up.
