There will not be a Week 22 Poteau Daily Newsâ€™ Pigkin Picks Contest winner due to a technicality on the Pro Bowl, which took place Sunday in Glendale, Ariz.
For the second straight season, the Pro Powl was not the traditional AFC vs. NFC format, but two Hall of Famers, this year being Michael Irvin and Cris Carter after it was Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice last season, drafting all-star teams comprised from both conferences.
Due to the ballot saying AFC vs. NFC, the Team Irvin vs. Team Carter format would not allow for the participants in that weekâ€™s contest to have their ballot count.
Both Whitesboro and Arkoma high schools were slated to have their teams hit the court Monday night, but neither did.
Whitesboro's home games with Haileyville and Arkoma's road games against Providence Academy in Rogers, Ark., were both canceled with no make-up date slated. Only Arkoma's junior high teams made the trip.
Tuesday night's Howe road games against Cameron were canceled due to Cameron Public Schools still out because of illness. No make-up dates have been set.
