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.
â€śAnytime you turn the lights on and have a chance to get out there, itâ€™s always a kind of a neat feeling,â€ť Poteau coach Greg Werner said. â€śHopefully, the folks will come out and watch, see whatâ€™s going on and get their first taste of football.â€ť
