Winning breeds winning. There are three things that all Poteau Pirates fans need to remember.
First of all, success and winning begats success and winning. Second, this is the third year of coach Greg Wernerâ€™s regime, and you could sense the awareness of the teams mental and physical performance in Friday nightâ€™s Red-White Spring Game.
Thirdly, even though the Pirates bid farewell to many great athletes off last yearâ€™s 12-win team, the cupboard isnâ€™t bare by any means of the imagination.
