Deer win the battle this year, but there is always next year

January 19, 2012

If you have a chance, come out and watch some of the Leflore County Tournament this weekend. It is a good chance to watch our area youth battling it out on the hardwood. Wister’s boys are in the semifinals for the first time since 1994 (at least that is when Jerry Carpenter and I decided). That is the year when some of my junior high players’ dads were playing.
Good luck boys!

January 17, 2012

It's hard to believe it's been 12 months, but it has. The 2012 LeFlore County Tournament got under way Monday at three sites — host Bokoshe, Heavener and Spiro.
I have to admit, I've been rather highly anticipating this year's event. Last year was my first County Tournament, and I had a blast. Now, that doesn't mean to say that I wasn't worn out at week's end mind you, but I thoroughly enjoyed the week.
