Poteau resident Tobey Thompson kept seeing one of the winners of the Poteau Daily News' Pigskin Picks Contest, Robert Swinford, winning quite often, so he decided to join in the fun. It took him 20 weeks, but he finally got a win.
Thompson bested all the contestants in last week's contest, going 4-1, to win the $25 prize.
The ballot for next weekendâ€™s contest was in Saturday's physical edition on Page 5A. That ballot will need to be turned in by 5 p.m. Friday to be eligible for that contestâ€™s $25 prize-winning check.
