Senior receiver/defensive end glad to be back in action; fans encouraged to ‘red out’ Muldrow Friday night

September 25, 2014

Not only were the Poteau Pirates glad to get their first win of this football season last Friday night, it also was a good feeling for senior receiver/defensive end Jordan Key. Key was unable to play in the first two games this season.
“It was awesome,” Key said. “I had been waiting. I had been practicing hard every day, and I gave it all I had.”
Although he’s been practicing, it still took a while to get back into the flow.
“I had to knock off some rust,” Key said. “I had to correct some things. Toward the second half, things got easier.”
