AUUGGH!!!!! Y'all are saying to yourselves, “Did he just use the 'F' word?” And the answer would be yes, I did — “Football” that is.
As you all know, the last weekend of August, The Poteau Daily News puts out the annual LeFlore County Gridiron Preview, previewing all eight county high school football teams — plus some more items for your enjoyment this season.
Therefore, I have to use this week to prepare it, so I won't be as visible at the diamond this week as I will be beginning next week. But that doesn't mean the coverage will drop off. It just means that you coaches will be relied on a little bit more than normal to help take up the slack in my absence at the ball games. I appreciate the help, and thank you all for your patience this week.
Editor's Note — To see this week's Diamond Notes Column in its entirety, check out today's edition of The Poteau Daily News.
