Basketball season is officially here folks, and the Poteau boys basketball team is working hard to make this season one of their best. The Pirates open up their season on December 3rd against Checotah at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse. Sophomore Dax Collins is excited about the upcoming season. He feels defense is the strong point of his game and his goal is to improve his scoring. Speaking of goals, Coach Wood said he’d like to see improvement on the team’s offense this season. The team has six games to prepare before tournaments start in January. As with any sport, being prepared will help set up a team for success. “We scout the other team. Look for their tendencies and what they like to do. We try to take away those things and we look for matchups that we believe we can take advantage of,” says head coach Brandon Wood. Senior Dean Odom says he prepares for games by stepping outside and finding an escape from the noise. My personal thoughts on the upcoming season, “Go, Pirates!”
