Last year, the Pocola Indians opened the 2010 football season on the road against Hulbert. This year, they'll open the 2011 campaign at 7:30 p.m. tonight at John Carter Field — not against Hulbert, however.
The Indians will welcome a new team to town, Tulsa Regent Prep — which is a very unknown opponent.
“The only thing I know about them is that they're ready to get their program off the ground,” Pocola Coach Rick Lang said. “They've had organized football since sixth grade for a lot of these kids. It's not new to them. What is new to them is Friday nights at 7:30 p.m. I'm sure they're excited about getting things going.”
