When the Poteau Pirates open District 4A-4 play at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Costner Stadium against the Hilldale Hornets, fans are being asked to wear red to have a â€śRed Outâ€ť affect on the visitors. Senior linebacker Marshall Jones believe such a spirit booster does just that.
â€śIt just shows that everyone in the community is supporting us,â€ť Jones said. â€śThey're willing to come out and play football. It makes us really happy, knowing they're that proud of us. It adds more enthusiasm. It makes us feel that everyone is a part of the game, having their red jerseys on. (Hilldale's) colors are red and white, too. This will show that we're all here, and we're ready to go.â€ť
