Cats enter Springdale Showdown on a roll

For the first time since the split, Har-Ber and Springdale High will meet as undefeateds.

Har-Ber coach Chris Wood alluded to Springdale as a football town this preseason, and both teams’ play through four weeks has reflected that. Fans and alums from both schools will fill the Jarrell Williams Bulldog Stadium stands with passion and pride Friday. “This is a special community and they love their football,” Wood said. “They’re so behind student-athletes no matter what we’re involved … Continue Reading ››
