Poteau junior running back closing in on school record

November 11, 2014

I have kept statistics for the Poteau Pirates for 25 years now, and I have seen many great backs tote the ball for the Pirates. I've never seen a back as prolific as Roger Barcheers.
Mike Sullivan said David had to average 250 rushing yards per game. If my calculations are right, I would have David Rolle at 5,750 yards unofficially.
At the present time, here are the top 10 Rushers of the modern era:
1. Nik McDaniel 4,356
2. Roger Barcheers 4,342
3. Eric Warren. 4,019
4. Tim Branch 3,161
5. Jace Pitchford 1,850
6. Zane Johnson 1,446
7. Niles McDaniel 1,354
8. Shawn Carnahan 1,253

Sports Briefs

November 9, 2014

The 2014-15 Poteau Buccaneer Basketball League needs three coaches — one for a first-second grade coed team, one for a third-fourth grade boys team and one for a boys fifth-sixth grade team. If these coaching voids are not filled, those respective divisions will not have a draft, and thus there will not be a season for those players who have signed up to play. For additional information, call Billy Bond at (918) 647-1939 or by e-mail at
