The Pocola Indians football team will get a final shot at fine tuning things when they welcome the Heavener Wolves to town for a 6 p.m. scrimmage tonight at John Carter Field.
The Indians want to improve upon what coach Rick Lang called â€śstupid football.â€ť
â€śI want to see us each week getting better, and play for four quarters,â€ť he said. â€śWe made mistakes, so we've got to cut out playing stupid football. I was pleased with how our kids came in and got after it [against Gore in last Friday night's scrimmage]. I want to see our kids compete, and we expect that. We have to eliminate the mistakes, and get into shape. Those are our two main things we're wanting to see. I told the kids we need to improve from our Week 1 scrimmage to our Week 2 scrimmage. We have to improve.â€ť
For the Wolves, they just want to continue building upon what was a strong outing last week against Poteau.
â€śWe're going to go into it trying to focus on trying to get more refined on offense and playing good, solid defense,â€ť Heavener coach Carl Lee said. â€śWe want to try to contain the run, and we want to stay healthy.â€ť
