Some people will use a trailer to help carry their belongings while traveling. The Bokoshe Lady Tigers basketball team also has a trailer â or, more precisely, a Traylor, as in junior forward Hunter Traylor â to help carry the load.
Traylor had a 41-point outing against Whitesboro in the 83rd LeFlore County Tournament last month, and is averaging close to 20 points a game. She said that since Bokoshe has always had hoops, basketball was the way to go.
âIâve always played basketball,â she said. We havenât always had a softball team.â
