Tailgating with guests

September 23, 2011

Two special guests will
be in town Friday to participate
in a tailgate party for
Poteau Pirates and their
fans.
Four Oklahoma
University football players
Paul Thompson and Larry
Birdine will be at Costner
Stadium Friday afternoon
during a tailgate party hosted
by Oklahoma Healthcare
Solution. The two Sooners
played together during the
2003-05 seasons with several
bowl games under their
belt. Thompson, who graduated
from High School in
Texas chose the Sooners
over the University of Texas
and relocated for the start of
his college career. Although
Thompson wasn’t a starting
quarterback until 2006, he
saw a lot of field time
throughout his career. Most
notably is his campaign to
lead the Sooners on an eight
win streak that sent the team
to the Big 12 Championship
game against Nebraska.
With Thompson at the helm,
the team took the win and
clinched their spot in the
Fiesta Bowl.
