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

  • It doesn’t get any easier for Springdale this week. Bentonville is the middle game in a brutal three-game stretch against the 7A-West’s best teams, sandwiched between Fayetteville and Fort Smith Northside.


  • It especially doesn’t get any easier for the defense. Junior starting defensive end Logan Brown is moving to Florida and has turned in his gear. He finished with 11 tackles, including three solo and one tackle-for-loss, in six games. He’s the fourth defensive starter to leave the team since the … Continue Reading ››

Paul Nielsen (Rogers beat writer)No question, yes. After … Continue Reading ››
