GRAVETTE -- For Lion fans, the night was full of promise as Gravette took the field at Lions Stadium for the opening game of the 2018 football season against the Cascia Hall Commandos from Tulsa, Okla., on Friday. But, by the end of the evening, the Lions fell to the Commandos 44-7. Taking the helm at quarterback for the Lions was senior Tajae White. Behind White at the running back position was Isaac Dann, and at wide receiver were Tristian Flournoy and Caleb Brown. ...

A few minutes later, the Tulsa team made its second touchdown of the night, extending its lead to 14.
