PREP REPORT CLASS 5A AND BELOW — WEEK 3

Coming off a 44-42 win at 5A Little Rock Christian in Week 2 and a 35-22 win at a 3A Elkins in Week 1, the Saints finally get to play at home and against a fellow 4A opponent.

Taking AAA To Court A Bad Sign

Has "Pandora's Box" been opened again for Arkansas high school football?

Former Bentonville coach Barry Lunney mentioned the phrase to me on numerous occasions when we talked about the split of Class 7A and Class 6A schools, and he believes those two classes will stay that way forever. Since that happened, we have dealt with numerous split conference ideas until this year, when Class 7A schools decided enough was enough and wanted to be by themselves.
