Sheridan hits ground running against Mountain Home and never looks back
RUSSELLVILLE - The Sheridan Yellowjackets put together one of its most complete performances, dismantling the Mountain Home Bombers in the process by a score of 33-7 and racking up stats that even surprised the coaches. The Jackets, playing on a clear, pleasant evening at Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys Stadium as a home game, started in with the run and pretty much kept it on the ground the entire game, picking up 379 yards in 44 attempts.

Poyen ties Jessieville in scrimmage
The Poyen Indians played to a tie with Jessieville last Tuesday night, but Head Coach Vick Barrett said he was pleased with his team's performance. The Indians got the ball three times and scored twice, and had it not been for a fumble, it would have walked into the end zone on that third possession as well.

Coach's Corner: Q and A with Sheridan Head Coach Lance Parker:
Q. Wow, great game last night. It wasn't perfect, but it was awfully close, certainly a very complete performance by your squad on opening night. Some really nice running plays, the TD pass, and a defense that was perfect. What were your thoughts: A. Offense: We had a good night offensively. They threw us a curve ball with some of their techniques. We were getting bear crawled inside, which is legal, but you don't see much. And getting chopped on counters and powers, which is not legal. We don't use our practice time to go over illegal stuff, but our line did a great job adjusting on the fly. I thought we threw with some poise when we had to. That was a rare performance in terms of production. 380 yards rushing is tough to do. I can only remember one other time in my career playing or coaching I have been a part of more rushing yards than that. After reviewing the film, it was quality execution from the line, fullback and ball carrier. It is great to watch the kids have that kind of success at what they have worked so hard at. We have to continue to develop as a passing team in order to balance out defenses.

Brandon Arledge commits to UA Fayetteville
Not only did Brandon Arledge have a dream come true - it came a year earlier than he expected. Arledge, a left-handed pitcher who is heading into his junior year at Sheridan High School, has made a verbal commitment to the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. He got the call from the University of Arkansas coaching staff last Monday, Aug. 5., and gave the school his answer two days later. "It's definitely an honor," the 16-year-old said. "It came a little earlier than I expected so it was kind of a surprise, but I'm glad it happened because it's a dream to go there."
