The last time the Poteau Pirates football team was home, it was its final preseason scrimmage against Mena, Ark., Aug. 23 at Costner Stadium.
Now, the Pirates will finally get to play a meaningful game at their friendly confines at 7:30 p.m. Friday as they play their home opener against Tulsa Webster. No one is more glad of that than senior receiver and defensive back Tyler Tustin.
“It feels great getting to play in front of our home crowd,” Tustin said. “After having two away games, maybe we can have a good showing in front of our home fans — and come away with another win.”
