ARKADELPHIA, Ark. — For Ouachita Baptist’s football team, it’s felt like an eternity since November 23rd, 2019.

Hear the team’s lessons from a lost season, why they expect to continue a winning tradition, and their thoughts on Ouachita Baptist legend Cliff Harris being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
