TULSA â€” Tyler Gibson had his moments Tuesday night in the Small School All-State Baseball Game at J.L. Johnson Stadium on the campus of Oral Roberts University.
The 2013 Wister High School graduate came in relief of Caney Valleyâ€™s Kyle Knight in the sixth inning. In his two innings, he allowed a run on a hit, a walk and struck out a batter as the Small East beat the Small West 9-5.
â€śIt was great,â€ť Gibson said. â€śComing out here and being able to close it, it was an honor to be able do it in the All-State Game."
Two Poteau wrestlers, Tyler Tustin and Derek Francis, were slated to wrestle for the East in the All-State Wrestling Dual Wednesday night at Bixby High School.
All-State Week will conclude with the All-State Football Game at 7 p.m. Friday at Union-Tuttle Stadium at Tulsa Union High School. The game will feature Poteau's Jay Werner and Talihina's Trevor Crone, who will be coached by Werner's father â€” and second-year Poteau coach â€” Greg Werner. It will be the last time that Greg Werner will get a chance to coach his son, Jay, before the All-State tight end prepares to play collegiately at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah.
