Four questions for four writers, talking 7A-West football heading into week five.

1. Finish this sentence: Springdale Har-Ber's 42-7 blowout win at Rogers High was                    ?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer) Not too shocking. Let me break it down. Har-Ber beat Owasso, Okla., 21-14 at a preseason scrimmage over in Tulsa. Granted, it was a scrimmage, but Owasso is one of … Continue Reading ››

ROGERS — Trey Smith started at quarterback for Springdale Har-Ber and he also caught three passes in the first half for the Wildcats. But Smith’s biggest contribution Friday night may have come off his foot.

In a scoreless game, the sophomore booted a punt 59 yards to the Rogers High one midway through the second quarter. The Wildcats then forced a three-and-out and they used the swing in field position and the momentum to score two touchdowns in a four-minute span before halftime to start a 42-7 victory over the Mounties in the 7A-West Conference opener at Whitey Smith Stadium.

Who will take the first snap under center for Rogers High on Friday night will most likely be a game time decision, Rogers coach Shawn Flannigan said. The Mounties host Springdale Har-Ber in the 7A-West Conference opener.

Starting quarterback Cole Evans suffered bruised ribs in last week’s loss to Jefferson City, Mo., but the senior has been practicing this week. Junior Joseph Sultemeier replaced Evans last week and has been getting extra reps at quarterback this week. Sultemeier also starts at receiver for the Mounties.

Sophomore Grayson Lee, who was Evans’ backup at the start of the season, is still sidelined after … Continue Reading ››

Bentonville junior quarterback Kasey Ford.

Four questions for four writers talking 7A-West football heading into the first week of conference play.

1. How many of the 7A-West’s winless teams (Bentonville, Springdale, Har-Ber) pick up their first victory this week?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer)It wouldn’t be a surprise if all three teams win Friday. Southside always gets up to face Barry Lunney’s Bentonville teams, but it would be a shocker if the Tigers faltered again. This is the first time both Springdale teams have started 0-3 … Continue Reading ››

CLAREMORE, Okla. — A quarterback switch gave Claremore, Okla. a much needed lift Friday night.

Aaron McCollough took control of the offense to start the second and the sophomore guided the Zebras to two quick second half touchdowns as Claremore defeated Rogers High 17-14 in a nonconference game.

McCollough was 2-for-3 passing for 79 yards an one touchdown as the Zebras scored two touchdowns in a span of just over two minutes in the third quarter. Both completions were to senior Dustin Basks, who started the game at quarterback but moved to receiver to start the second half.

“McCollough is just young and … Continue Reading ››

ROGERS — The new cast in the Rogers High triple option offense got off to a slow start Friday night against Siloam Springs.

Rogers, which has 11 new starters on offense, failed to get a first down on its first possession after watching the Panthers offense use just two plays for a 7-0 lead on the game’s opening possession.

But then Mounties fullback Bryan Grigsby kicked the offense into gear with a record setting performance. Grigsby rushed 32 times for 446 yards and the senior scored all five of the Mounties touchdowns in a 35-21 victory over Siloam Springs in the season … Continue Reading ››
