Rain causes schedule changes in 2012 Howe Wood Bat Classic

HOWE — Mother Nature has once again intervened in the Howe Wood Bat Classic.
After the first game of Thursday's slate of action, rain and threatening weather canceled the final three games of the tournament.
There will be six games on Friday beginning at 10 a.m.
The one game which did take place on Thursday saw the Cameron Yellowjackets rally to down the Howe Lions 10-7.
The three games which were postponed on Thursday — Leflore vs. Whitesboro, Wister vs. Clayton and Smithville vs. McCurtain — will be played at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m., respectively, today.

New senior tight end liking being a Poteau Pirate player

September 6, 2012

When Broken Bow's Greg Werner was hired as the new Poteau Pirates' football coach, not only was there a transition for him, but also for his senior tight end son, Jay.
While there was skepticism at first, Jay has learned to embrace being a Poteau Pirate.
“At first it was tough because I thought to myself, 'What in the world, going to one of our own rivals in our district,'” Jay said. “As time progressed, it's gone a lot smoother than I thought it would be. It's definitely been a bigger change. I've definitely enjoyed it — so far.”

Heavener Wolves have home football opener Friday night against Hartshorne

September 6, 2012

Things could not have started any better for the Heavener Wolves football team than what happened in Friday night's 35-0 season-opening win on the road over Union Christian Academy in Fort Smith, Ark.
“The kids came out and played hard,” said Carl Lee, Heavener's new coach. “We have some areas in which we need to make corrections. It was a good confidence builder, and it was good to get things started on the right foot.”
Now, the Wolves (1-0) will try to get their home season off the same way when they entertain the Hartshorne Miners at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Harvey Stadium.

September 6, 2012

The good news for the Panama Razorbacks in last week's season-opening game against the Gore Pirates at George Ollie Stadium was they were in a position they had rarely been in recently — ahead. However, the not-so-good news was that in the end they fell short in a 35-19 loss to the Pirates.

Fishing, hunting and a tribute to grandma

September 6, 2012

Last weekend was free hunting days in Oklahoma. I was hoping to have my email inbox full of pictures of some doves, but I didn’t get any. If you were out in the field harvesting some of those birds, send me some pictures. My readers would love to see them.
— — —
I got to do a little fishing last week with my son, Koby, and Scotty Gibson near Wister. We caught several bass with the biggest being about three pounds. Even though I reeled in the big one, Scotty Gibson had one hooked up that broke his line that may have topped mine.

Football caused some long nights for me this Labor Day Weekend

September 5, 2012

I got back from Durant at 2 a.m. Saturday after going to the Poteau football season opener.
Then, the next night, I was forced to stay up until 1:30 a.m. Sunday due to the closeness of the Oklahoma Sooners' football game at Texas-El Paso.
I was glad that Monday was a holiday, because I crashed and burned on the couch. I have not failed to watch an OU football on TV for the last five years, but I really can not get enthused on spending $39.95 to watch this Staurday's OU-Florida A&M game on pay-per-view. Leroy, you do still carry those game on the radio don’t you?
