The Poteau Pirates opened the season with tough losses to two higher-classification Arkansas schools, Alma and Van Buren. Since, the Pirates are on a two-game winning streak including last weekâ€™s 38-13 District 4A-4 opening win over Muldrow to celebrate homecoming.
Poteau senior linebacker/tight end Jacob Wiles said the Pirates are now beginning to click on all cyclinders.
â€śOffensively, weâ€™ve got a lot of the kinks worked out,â€ť he said. â€śWeâ€™ve eliminated all the penalties, like the false starts and jumping offsides.â€ť
