A LOOK BACK AT WEEK 1
Little Rock Central did not score an offensive touchdown but still won its opener, 7-3, over West Memphis. Central, which opened the season ranked No. 1 according to FearlessFriday and the Associated Press, managed just 75 yards of offense and five first downs. West Memphis led 3-0 at the half, but A.J. Williams returned an interception 86 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter to give the Tigers the win.
ALL JACK'D UP IN SEASON OPENER
The 2006 high school football season ended with Jarius Wright laying across the goal line in the second overtime of the Class 4A state championship game. He watched helplessly as he was declared down just shy of what would have been a game-winning two-point conversion, leaving the Warren Lumberjacks dejected and Nashville with a 21-20 win and the state title.
Fearless Friday 1st Week Predictions
Monday's Games Sheridan (6A-#8) vs. Warren (4A-#1) at UAPB … Warren Central Arkansas Christian (4A-#2) vs. Dollarway (4A-#3) at UAPB RPS Closer Look: The numbers did not add up after rolling in back in early July. CAC is a fast starter and Dollarway has a plate full of land mines on the schedule that could take the Cardinals to as many as four defeats before they get their first win. This could very well be Dollarway’s best chance to win before a Sept. 28 game with Dumas. CAC drummed Dollarway last year and, unlike many precision passing teams, the Mustangs are capable of playing high-caliber football at the season’s outset. Projection: CAC.
CATHOLIC'S REGISTER REMEMBERS SCOOTER
When Phil Rizzuto passed away last week, Little Rock Catholic head coach Ellis Register couldn't help but notice.
2006 SEASON WILL BE TOUGH TO TOP
It will take a monumental effort in 2007 to top last year's high school football season as far as drama, excitement and individual performances. The 2006 season even began in unusual fashion
WATKINS KNOWS ABOUT FORDYCE TRADITION
Clark Watkins knows all about that monster called Fordyce Redbug football tradition because he helped feed it. Watkins led the Redbugs to back-to-back state titles as the quarterback in 1990 and 1991. Now Watkins takes over the helm of one of the most tradition-rich programs in the state.

Fearless Friday Preseason 3A Top Ten
With football being a timed game, it makes sense that timing is everything in football. For Shiloh Christian, the timing could not have been more perfect in 2006.
McCAULEY WINS QUARTERBACK CHALLENGE
Zac McCauley of Benton didn’t win a single event in the 4th Annual Sonic Top Gun Quarterback Challenge, but he was consistent throughout the two-day event and easily won the overall competition that wrapped up on Friday at Springdale’s Jarrell Williams Stadium.
Fearless Friday Class 4A Preview
While Texarkana is the surest thing to win a state title on paper, Warren winning the Class 4A state title probably makes the most sense. The one biggest obstacle for the Lumberjacks is that they're playing among a group of 4A teams that is, as it has been the past few years, stacked. And the 'Jacks play in one of the two best leagues.
2A Preseason Predictions
Oh, most of us know where Earle is. But it wasn't there when we looked this year. Along about Class 2A, magazine-makers who charge us 17 bucks a pop got a little lazy and duplicated one team's page at the expense of taking out another team.
Here’s the lowdown in the subset of Class 7A that we call 6A football.
There are three good teams in Class 6A, several more that have the potential to contend and then there are a few that wouldn’t make it through two rounds of the Class 3A Playoffs.
CLASS 5A PREDICTIONS AND FORECAST
Grading the Class 5A field is like handicapping a horse race. It’s almost always that way.
Bacon Bits – (Un)Stirring The Melting Pot
I remember well being a senior in high school. It was a time of future promise, a time to make great friends and enjoy the freedom that comes with fewer responsibilities. It was a time to explore the wilderness of life and begin to chase my dreams. And I had many hours each day within which to do this.
CLASS 7A PREDICTIONS AND FORECAST
First, the bombshell of this year's rankings has nothing to do with which team is ranked No. 1. The bombshell is something you can't see: It's that Class 6A Texarkana will be the No. 1 team in Arkansas to start the 2007 season.
Campbell Center of Attention
Wynne's Don Campbell allowed his assistant coaches and players to run the new-fangled Spread offense in the 52nd Annual Arkansas Coaches Association All-Star Football game on Friday night.
Whitmore ' Winner' according to Malzahn
FAYETTEVILLE -- A.J. Whitmore is a perfect fit for Gus Malzahn and Tulsa. The Nashville quarterback verbally committed to Kansas State early but changed his mind shortly after Malzahn left Arkansas and joined Todd Graham's staff at the University of Tulsa in December.
Some Stars A No-Show
FAYETTEVILLE - Noticeably absent this week from the Arkansas High School Coaches Association All-Star football game will be Pulaski Academy's Stefan Loucks and Broderick Green, Rogers' Cody Kirby and Lee Ziemba, and Northside's Kodi Burns.
Shootout of the South
One of the top 7-on-7 football competitions in the country returns to west Little Rock this Friday and Saturday, June 15 and 16 at the Mighty Bluebird Complex.
Arkansas High School Football - a constant state of evolution
Just like anything else, Arkansas high school football evolves. Twenty years ago, one would usually see predominately running formations such as the I, wishbone or wing T on Friday nights at most high school stadiums thru out the state of Arkansas.
