Pocola football coach Rick Lang could not be happier with how his team is entering tonight's 2013 season opener against Tulsa Regent Prep at 7:30 p.m. at John Carter Field.
â€śI think from our first scrimmage to our second, we saw great improvement,â€ť Lang said. â€śI loved how the kids came out against Heavener with great enthusiasm from the first play all the way to the end. I think we accomplished everything we wanted to accomplish. We had a good scrimmage. Our kids were flying around to the ball. We cut down on our mistakes, and the kids got better. I was proud of them. If we continue to improve like that, we'll turn some heads this year. I told them Friday night if we come out this week like we did against Heavener, we should be fine. I think we're right where we need to be. We're much further along than we were at this time last year â€” and we're healthy.â€ť
