It's hard to think that there's a finality in preseason games, but that's the case for the Poteau Pirates football team.
Poteau's new coach, Greg Werner, said that tonight's 6 p.m. scrimmage at Costner Stadium against Mena, Ark., is an important one for many reasons.
â€śThis is it,â€ť Werner said. â€śWe've got to get all these things taken care of now. We're behind, so maybe we can get some things learned and get some things figured out.â€ť
