Members of the 2005 state champion Springdale Bulldogs football team, including head coach Gus Malzahn, tight end Ben Cleveland and wide receiver Damian Williams, had a reunion before Springdale's homecoming game against Fort Smith Northside on Friday, Oct. 23, 2015.
The threat of bad weather forced a few teams to move their games up to Thursday, meaning Week 8 of the Arkansas high school season has already begun.
A forfeit by Rose Bud earlier in the week gave Harding Academy a win, while Texarkana beat Little Rock Parkview 35-14, Fouke beat Genoa Central 22-0, Clarendon beat Marvell 30-14 and Mineral Springs beat Foreman 36-28 Thursday.
