Senior linebacker says undefeated start to season huge for Poteau

After the Poteau Pirates routed the Idabel Warriors 42-7 last week for their first road football win of the 2011 season, it put the Pirates at 2-0. Such a start could not have been any better, according to senior outside linebacker Jake McMillin.“It's a big deal,” he said. “I like it. Things are way better than they were last year. Last year, I felt like we weren't going to have a chance to be any good. This year, I feel something coming on. We just have to keep working hard each week, and hope for the best — maybe even the playoffs. We just need to keep getting better each week.”
