The 2013 Wister High School graduate came in relief of Caney Valley’s Kyle Knight in the sixth inning. In his two innings, he allowed a run on a hit, a walk and struck out a batter as the Small East beat the Small West 9-5.
“It was great,” Gibson said. “Coming out here and being able to close it, it was an honor to be able do it in the All-State Game."

How about this snake story? Eleven-year-old Gavin Garrett of Poteau was hanging out with his grandfather, Don Garrett, this week when they came across a five-foot, six-inch long rattlesnake in Don’s barn. The snake was nine inches around at its largest point, and had 13 rattles and a button.
When Gavin and Don found the big dude inside the door of his barn, Gavin shot it with a .22 pistol that he had with him only to realize that the pistol had rat shot in it.
