Some pre-Northside game notes.

  • Week three of Springdale’s brutal three-week stretch against the 7A-West’s best features a matchup at Fort Smith Northside (6-1, 3-1). The Grizzlies may very well be the best team in the conference. They beat Fayetteville in a thriller and lost a close one at Bentonville despite making quite a few errors.


  • Northside’s defense is its strength. It features Arkansas defensive end commit Daytrieon Dean (6-3, 260) and physical linebacker Deontre Hardwick (6-1, 230). Saw a highlight of Hardwick where the other … Continue Reading ››

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

1. True or false: Fayetteville sophomore Taylor Powell is already one of the elite quarterbacks in the 7A-West?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer)True. He may be close to claiming the No. 1 spot by the end of the season and there’s a good chance he’ll be the league’s best next year. Look at what past Division I quarterbacks did or didn’t do as … Continue Reading ››

Springdale coach Shane Patrick.
Some pre-Bentonville game notes.

  • It doesn’t get any easier for Springdale this week. Bentonville is the middle game in a brutal three-game stretch against the 7A-West’s best teams, sandwiched between Fayetteville and Fort Smith Northside.


  • It especially doesn’t get any easier for the defense. Junior starting defensive end Logan Brown is moving to Florida and has turned in his gear. He finished with 11 tackles, including three solo and one tackle-for-loss, in six games. He’s the fourth defensive starter to leave the team since the … Continue Reading ››

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

1. True or false: Bentonville has turned a corner the last two weeks with wins over Fort Smith Northside and Springdale Har-Ber.

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer) True. The Tiger offense has been much more efficient in recent weeks, a trend that should only continue as they roll through the easy portion of their schedule. The Fayetteville game looms large.

Paul Nielsen (Rogers beat writer)No question, yes. After … Continue Reading ››

FAYETTEVILLE — Two plays into the 115th Battle of the Bulldogs, Fayetteville made things look easy against rival Springdale.

The rest of the night wasn’t quite so comfortable for the Purple’Dogs, but Fayetteville never really left anything in doubt in a 49-21 win against Springdale on Friday at Harmon Stadium.

Sophomore quarterback Taylor Powell hit running back Luke Rapert on a quick out route for 13 yards on the first play of the game. Powell then went deep for 67 yards to Bruce Armstrong for Fayetteville’s first score with 11 minutes, 36 seconds still left in the first quarter as the Purple’Dogs … Continue Reading ››
