Poteau senior lineman not affected by Friday’s playoff opponent change; Pirates will travel Friday night to face Oologah, not Wagoner, in Class 4A playoff opener

November 12, 2014

At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Poteau Pirates found out their football playoff journey had taken a change. Due to the Oologah Mustangs playing with some ineligible players during their District 4A-3 season, the Mustangs, who originally won the district title, suffered a couple of losses, thus dropping them to the runner-up spot. Therefore, instead of the Pirates heading to face the Wagoner Bulldogs on Friday night, they will head to Oologah.
The change doesn’t seem to have bothered the Pirates.

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
