Pirate senior defensive back says season-opening win big

When the Poteau Pirates defeated the Checotah Wildcats 38-35 last Friday night at Costner Stadium, among the happy players was senior defensive back Jesse Woodson.“It was good,” Woodson said. “We came out, and we played hard. We gave it all we had.”Woodson had a good reason to be happy. His interception in the waning seconds sealed the deal for Poteau.
