“It’s definitely four different cats, and four different guys that do it a little different, but they all can be successful,” Coach Pratt said. “They’ve all bought in, and they help each other out.”
Thursday’s game is part of “Pink Out Week,” a cancer-awareness fundraiser put on by McAlester’s cheer squad as part of the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association’s “Win-Win” fundraiser. Cheer coach Ashlee Shumway ran her Little Buffs Cheer Clinic earlier this week, and those young cheerleaders will perform with McAlester’s varsity, JV and freshman squads at the game.
The Little Buffs will wear pink outfits, the Lady Buffs will wear pink bows, and the Buffs will wear pink athletic tape. Fans are encouraged to wear their “Pink Out” T-shirts.
The Buffs and Lions kick off tonight at 7 p.m.
