Football season is here and is packed with epic matchups. You can catch all the action live as it happens. Next event featuring Arkansas Razorbacks will be Kentucky Wildcats vs. Arkansas Razorbacks, held at the Kroger Field in Lexington. Arkansas Razorbacks.
That combination has limited the practice times for his Grizzlies.
You can't do that if you want to win games, so we have to improve on that. There were times that I could tell we were very confused on, like a couple of their blitzes. We can't have guys trying to do their own thing.
We gave up some big plays because we had guys in the wrong spot. He also said the Pointers tackled well defensively.
At this point, that's not too bad. We did OK. OK is not great. But it's encouraging to play a half against a pretty good football team. Junior running back Hunter Wilkinson accounted for two scores, one receiving and one rushing.
Greenwood returns only nine starters and just two on the offensive line, which is still a work in progress, Jones said. It was also one of the drawbacks of not getting to play more, Jones said there are probably seven in the hunt for the five starting spots.
We gave up some sacks. But we've still got two more weeks of practice. He also singled out nose guard Coleton Erwin.
Rogers moved the ball efficiently mainly through the air in both quarters with senior quarterback Hunter Loyd throwing for a combined yards and four touchdowns in the two quarters. Senior receiver Mason Ross finished with 12 catches for yards and two touchdowns, both against Pea Ridge.
Rogers coach Mike Loyd came away pleased with much of what he saw. We threw the ball great.
We ran great routes. We competed and hooked it up against two good football teams. I was pleased with the effort. We had some great drives. I thought the defense did a better job in the second. But you're gonna win if you keep them off the field.
Defense hasn't changed in forever.
Let's not come out here and try and do our own thing. Do your job and player your assignment and that's what we've got to get better at. Overall, I thought we played hard and got out of here healthy.
It will actually give Harrison's opponents an extra thing they must heed. Johnson, the starter last year, is right-handed, while Keylon, a junior, is left-handed.
We'll play them both all year long. Keylon added a score with an 8-yard touchdown run. Huskey, who ran for 2, yards and 33 touchdowns last season, had the ball stripped out of his hands on his first carry during the scrimmage portion.
We want him to get back into the rhythm. He fumbled just one time last year, so that's not a big concern. Harrison now begins preparing for its season opener Friday at Pea Ridge.
They say you improve more from game one to game two than any other time during the year, so we need to make this game one. Pea Ridge held its own for the most part against the two bigger schools, and that pleased Neal a lot. The Blackhawks gave up a long touchdown pass during their one quarter of play against Siloam Springs, then Rogers scored on a pair of fourth-down passes.
It doesn't matter who is going to be on the field. Our kids are going to compete as hard as they can. I was pleased with the offensive effort, but as every football coach will tell you the offense will take a little longer to develop. Both of those items were accomplished.
I could go down the list of everybody that played the two quarters against Siloam Springs and Rogers and think they did a great job. Mansfield won in two quarters of varsity action with the Leopards.
Offensively, we were just OK. Our quarterback protection wasn't as good as we would like it to be. We still have some wrinkles to work out. Cothran said he likes the early start that will allow Mansfield a week off before beginning 3A-1 Conference play at home against West Fork on Sept.
That's when you want to be percent healthy and ready to go. Lincoln will join the league in for the next reclassification cycle. Lincoln is coming off an season in Class 4A that included a victory over Prairie Grove, its first win over the Tigers in nearly 25 years.
Lincoln expects to compete at a high level again in 4A before dropping down to 3A with schools more it size. Lincoln finished third in the 4A-1 Conference last season. But we're not thinking 'let's see if we can hold on this year.
But the Wolves return a handful of returning starters, including running back Christian Sellers and Noe Avellaneda, who caught 40 passes last year for yards. Receiver Daytin Davis is healthy again after he broke his collarbone and missed playing last year. Lincoln will open its season Sept.
