Alabama outplayed LSU Tigers in BCS Championship Game

January 17, 2012

Did you enjoy the Bowl Championship Series National Championship game? I saw the last part of the game, and what I saw was a team that was simiply outcoached and outplayed by another team.
One of the sports announcers made a comparison between Les Miles and Forrest Gump. The more I thought about it, that comparison made sense. How many times in the last five years alone did Les Miles make what seemed to be coaching blunders, and come out smelling like a rose?

A look back at 2011 in LeFlore County athletics — and my JH County Tournament All-Tournament Team

January 13, 2012

As I look at 2011 in the rearview mirror, I, too, am proud of the exploits of champions of LeFlore County. Kudos to the Talihina Golden Tigers and their Class 2A state basketball championship. Most people don’t realize they were only four points away from being a three-time state champion.
Tyler Tustin gained the second state championship for the Pirates in wrestling, and he has two more years to wrestle.
