Coach Todd Ledford: We still got a lot of work to do in fall camp right here, but the fun part is, this is the fun part. It’s the preparing getting ready to go.
Coach Todd Ledford: We’ve got another good defense coming back, offensively we got four guys on our offensive line. The tight ends, good looking guys who can run around and catch the ball. So it’s really not building process this year it’s more just us getting better.
Kamady Rudd: Senior Middle linebacker Jonathan Bailey says their goals are simple…
Jonathan Bailey: Win, win that’s all I want to do is win. I take it personal, but I leave it all on the field, I don’t go too far with it.
Kamady Rudd: And of course, the coaches agree.
Coach Todd Ledford: Our number one goal is to win games, of course. We always want to have a winning record, we always want to win the conference, go to the playoffs and win too. It’s been a while since Arkansas High’s won a state championship and that’s always our ultimate goal.
Kamady Rudd: This year could be the year, for more reasons that one….
Jonathan Bailey: Family, we stay strong together. It there’s a problem, we come together to each other, solve it, and go on.
Kamady Rudd: And if you are lucky enough to see this team in action, you won’t be disappointed.
Jonathan Bailey: You should expect hard work, we don’t give up, we just don’t give up.

Kamady Rudd: Texas has taken that game the last few seasons. Find out if this season is different on September fifth…
