Poteau Red-White Scrimmage tonight at Costner Stadium; admission is bottles of Gatorade, Powerade

August 16, 2014

Football is back in Poteau, at least the preseason that is.
The 2014 Red-White Interteam Scrimmage will be at 6:30 tonight at Costner Stadium. Admission is bottles of Gatorade and/or Powerade.
Tonight will be the first game-like situation since the 2013 Class 4A state title game last December and the spring game in May.
“Anytime you turn the lights on and have a chance to get out there, it’s always a kind of a neat feeling,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said. “Hopefully, the folks will come out and watch, see what’s going on and get their first taste of football.”
