Pirates end spring football practice with Red-White Game Thursday night; monetary donations will be accepted at gate to be given to Moore tornado relief efforts

May 22, 2013

For 10 days, the Poteau Pirates football team has gone through spring drills. The Pirates will cap off the 10-day period with Thursday night's Red-White Spring Game at 6:30 p.m. at Costner Stadium.
“Things have gone well,” said first-year Poteau coach Greg Werner. “We scrimmaged Monday, and we kind of saw where we're at. [Tuesday] we didn't get to get outside because of the weather, but we were inside watching film. We got outside [Wednesday]. As with any year, we're behind where I thought we'd be behind, but we're ahead in other areas. So, it's all about getting things on the same page.”
