Spiro offense moves ball against Pocola, but Indians get defensive takeaways in Friday night’s scrimmage

September 2, 2014

When two county football teams, the Pocola Indians and the Spiro Bulldogs, met in Friday night’s scrimmage at Spiro’s McClain Stadium, each team’s strength came to the forefront.
Offensively, the Bulldogs will be counting upon senior quarterback McKinley Whitfield to lead the way, and he did just that.
In the final part of the scrimmage where it was a simulated half of football, Whitfield had a 38-yard touchdown pass to D.T. Neal, to go with two long pass plays to Chad Tye — covering 20 and 40 yards.

Heavener, Panama each score in Friday’s scrimmage

September 2, 2014

Panama coach Brandon Ellis was wanting one main objective from Friday night’s home scrimmage against the Heavener Wolves at George Ollie Stadium.
“We just want to stay healthy and see how our younger players react to different color jerseys,” he said.
Even though the Razorbacks have made the playoffs for the past two years, their numbers have dwindled to 22 players.
The Wolves, on the other hand, saw an increase in their numbers as they welcomed home Sam Hembree, who is beginning his first year as Heavener’s coach.
