Although the Poteau Pirates football team won its final game of the 2012 season, the win did not come in the playoffs. It came in the season finale over Tulsa Rogers in Week 10 at Costner Stadium.
Thus, the Pirates have had Sept. 6, 2013, etched in their minds ever since — the date of this year's season opener against the Durant Lions at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Costner Stadium. Senior wide receiver Jarrett Lowrimore is no exception.
“We've been anticipating this night ever since we got in here in the spring and on through practice,” he said. “We can't wait. We're super excited.”
