The Arkansas high school football season continues on Friday with several good games around the state.
Here’s a look at five games with recruits connected to Arkansas involved.
Pulaski Academy at Parkway, Bossier (La.)
The Bruins are 2-0 on the season following a 56-35 victory over Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway. Class of 2019 tight end Hudson Henry caught eight passes for 87 yards with a long of 21. For the season, Henry has caught 17 passes for 250 yards and a pair of touchdowns with a long of 54.
Joe T. Robinson at Camden Fairview
The Senators are 1-1 on the season. Class of 2019 defensive end Zach Williams is committed to Arkansas. In two games, he has 18 tackles, four tackles for loss, two sacks, one forced fumble and a caused fumble. Elliott Harris Jr. and E’Marion Harris are also standouts at Robinson. Elliott, a 2019 prospect, plays both ways and has nine tackles including one for a loss. E’Marion, who is a freshman, has one tackle on defense, but spends the majority of his time at offensive tackle. Class of 2019 quarterback Greyson Tackett has completed 12 of 28 passes for 214 yards, three touchdowns and an interception for the Senators. Class of 2019 Camden Fairview offensive tackle Stacey Wilkins is committed to Oklahoma. They also are 1-1 after defeating Hamburg 25-19 in overtime this past Friday.
Fayetteville at Bryant
The Purple Dogs are led by Class of 2019 quarterback Darius Bowers who has offers from several smaller schools. Bowers has completed 46 of 63 passes for 776 yards and seven touchdowns with no interceptions. He also has rushed 24 times for 79 yards and three scores while leading team to 2-0 start. Bryant is also 2-0 and a player to watch is Class of 2020 outside linebacker-defensive end Catrell Wallace (6-6, 215). The Hornets defeated Bentonville West 17-10 this past Friday night.
Rison at Strong
Rison is led by Class of 2019 Arkansas commitment Malik Chavis. They are off to a 2-0 start this season having beaten Brinkley 41-6 this past Friday night. Strong dropped to 0-2 on the season after losing to Lake Village Lakeside 20-6 on Friday night.
Warren at Dollarway
Warren is 1-0 on the season and features Class of 2019 Arkansas commitments wide receiver Treylon Burks and defensive tackle Marcus Miller. Dollarway has fallen on hard times after being a power in Arkansas not so long ago. They are 0-2 having lost to Little Rock McClellan 55-0 and Forrest City 46-8. This game will likely be over pretty quickly, but it’s watching Burks and Miller. Burks is one of the greatest players to ever come out of this state.
