NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR- A big name in clothing and sports has added a local school's football program to their list of the best in the country.
Nike has announced a multi-year partnership that places the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats football program as the first and only Nike Elite Program in the state of Arkansas.
The high school Elite program is similar to how Nike sponsors college football programs.
There are only 16 national Nike Elite Football Teams in the United States.
“We wanted to partner with North Little Rock because of their commitment to bringing a first-class product to the gridiron in Arkansas.
The growing accomplishments of Coach Brad Bolding, his staff and players make the Charging Wildcats one of the premier football programs in the state of Arkansas,” said Nike Representative Kelly Wylie.
Head Coach Brad Bolding began the conversion to Nike over a year ago.
“Our school’s motto is World Class. "
