AN FBH-FAY SCRIMMAGE 8-26

When Fayetteville hits the field Friday at Rogers Heritage, a victory could mean plenty for the Bulldogs. With a win, Fayetteville secures a home playoff game in the Class 7A playoffs and would also stay atop the 7A-West Conference race with two weeks left in the regular season.

But this Friday's game also has an added element, particularly for Fayetteville coach Daryl Patton.

Now in his 12th season with the Purple'Dogs, Patton could get win No. 100 as Fayetteville coach with the victory Friday. And while many coaches across the … Continue Reading ››

AN FBH-SDALE PRACTICE
Springdale coach Shane Patrick.
Some pre-Northside game notes.

  • Week three of Springdale’s brutal three-week stretch against the 7A-West’s best features a matchup at Fort Smith Northside (6-1, 3-1). The Grizzlies may very well be the best team in the conference. They beat Fayetteville in a thriller and lost a close one at Bentonville despite making quite a few errors.


  • Northside’s defense is its strength. It features Arkansas defensive end commit Daytrieon Dean (6-3, 260) and physical linebacker Deontre Hardwick (6-1, 230). Saw a highlight of Hardwick where the other … Continue Reading ››

Fayetteville quarterback Taylor Powell.
Four questions for four writers talking 7A-West football heading into the first week of conference play.

1. True or false: Fayetteville sophomore Taylor Powell is already one of the elite quarterbacks in the 7A-West?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer)True. He may be close to claiming the No. 1 spot by the end of the season and there’s a good chance he’ll be the league’s best next year. Look at what past Division I quarterbacks did or didn’t do as … Continue Reading ››

Junction City rolled into Bearden with a 32-game winning streak and needed only one half to prove it would have no problem with win No. 33.

A 44-yard touchdown pass to Keandre Evans less than two minutes into the game set the tone, as the Bears' secondary could not stop the speedy receiver.

Evans added touchdowns of 54, 25 and 26 yards, finishing the game with four of Junction City's six touchdowns.

The other touchdowns came on a 57-yard run by Josh Armstrong and an 8-yard reception by Arkansas commit Jamario Bell.
