Senior defensive lineman ready for stretch drive of football season, prep career

October 17, 2012

It's hard to come to the realization that things are about to end. Take a football career, for instance. Players such as Troy Aikman, Phil Simms and Chris Collinsworth, who are now National Football League analysts, probably hated to have to hang up their uniforms after their NFL careers ended.
One Poteau Pirate senior player probably knows that feeling. Senior defensive lineman Zack Hall is ready to end his prep career on a high note, which would be making the playoffs.

The Hogs won their second straight game last week with a 34-6 home win over the Quinton Savages Friday night at George Ollie Stadium.
“It's the best I've seen us play in the two years I've been here,” said Brandon Ellis, Panama's coach. “Everything clicked. The biggest improvement I saw last week was our offensive line in the way we hooked up with our blocks.”
