Just because the Talihina Golden Tigers are entertaining the Sallisaw Black Diamonds junior varsity at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Doc Robinson Stadium, Talihina coach Kelly Gravitt said his team is not going to back down.
â€ś[Sallisaw] coach [Craig] Benson is going to start his main quarterback for a half,â€ť he said. â€śWe're going to full steam ahead. We're pretty much going to go like a normal week. We had out Tuesday type of practice [on Monday] because we play on Thursday this week. We're wanting to get better every week, and we want to win every one of them.â€ť
