DURANT â€” It was one heck of a pregame pep talk by Poteau's new football coach, Greg Werner.
â€śI want you to go out and dominate this game be very physical,â€ť Werner told the Pirates before they took the field against the Durant Lions at Paul Laird Field on the campus of Southeastern Oklahoma State University. â€śLet people know that the Poteau Pirates are back!â€ť
After trailing by seven points at halftime, the Pirates came out and physically dominated the Lions and won the game 28-21.
