BRYANT â€” At the 2011 Salt Bowl Press conference, Bryant head coach Paul Calley said the Hornets would be utilizing more of a passing game than what some fans might be accustomed to.
And in Mondayâ€™s scrimmage against Pine Bluff, the Hornets stayed true to his word as they marched down the field in their opening drive for a touchdown.
â€śWe utilized that short passing game,â€ť Calley said over the phone Tuesday morning.
The Benton Panthers kicked their season off Friday with their annual Maroon and Gray game at C.W. Lewis Stadium. With packed house on one side of the field and a partially packed side on the other, one would think it was a regular season football game. Too bad it was not. It was just a scrimmage.
BENTON â€” If there was ever a year where the Benton Panthers should run away with the season, it should be this year. With a squad made up of 18 seniors (10 boys and eight girls), the Benton tennis team should have no problem with their competition.
Especially since most of the squads they will be facing have almost no returning starters, including last yearâ€™s winners Lake Hamilton (boys) and Sheridan (girls).
Bentonâ€™s senior led team is due to the recruiting efforts of a core group of players about four years ago when they were freshman.
