While the major colleges have already concluded spring football practice, the Poteau Pirates will begin theirs this afternoon.
“We’re all looking forward to it.,” Poteau coach Forrest Mazey said. “It’s just something that’s always in my blood. I’ve been itching for this since Christmas break. It’s something I always look forward to. The kids start talking about it.”
