The Heavener High School football tailgate party that was scheduled for Monday night at Harvey Stadium was postponed due to threatening weather conditions.
The event has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Friday.
There will be many spirit items for sale at various booths.
There will be hamburgers and hotdogs as well as other concessions.
There will be a water slide and a bounce house for children (tickets required).
The HHS cheerleaders and football players will be introduced followed by a mini scrimmage around 8:30 p.m.
When high school football practice begins next week, players can only be in shorts and helmets from Monday through Thursday. They will not be in pads until Friday.
Nonetheless, a lot can be accomplished â€” especially on offense.
The 2013 high school football season will not actually begin until the first week of September. However, the preparations for the LeFlore County teams' openers will begin next week â€” and in a new way.
For the first time, high school football practice will begin on a Monday, as opposed to the ordinary Tuesdays as it has been in years past.
The good news is that football season is upon us as high school football teams will begin practice next week. The bad news, as is just about always the case, is that it will likely be hot â€” which is a major concern for football coaches everywhere. LeFlore County is no different.
