I've read through every post and unless I'm missing it, there is one name that I can't believe is missing.

Coach Eddie Jackson.

Around Prescott, that name carries as much weight as any. He is a legend around here. He taught many young boys how to be men. Sadly, his style would get him fired today. I'm honored to have played for him. He taught me so much. He was tough, hard nosed, but honest and fair. Coach Jackson is down at Genoa Central now helping kick start that program. I love telling stories from my time with Coach. He's a great man.

I had several good coaches during my career. I am sure several of the names are familiar across the state.

I moved a bit in jr high due to parents work. First school (7-8 grade) Rick Baker who left for Nashville as well as Boomer Brown. Lastly Theodis Ingram who last I heard was at north pulaski.
(9 grade) second school Franky Gathon who is now at Osceola.
(10-12) last school Jim Cox, Blaire Brown, Clay Totty, Steve Baxley.

Each of these guys helped shape me. Glad they made the game fun and had the opportunity to play under them

Coach Carroll Wilson of Augusta High School was a great coach, teacher, and principal.  Most of all, he was a great man and a role model for so many young men.  The impact great coaches have on their players is a beautiful thing to witness.  Coach Wilson passed away last night.  His daughter made the comment that since it was the start of football season, God needed a good coach.

Coach Don Campbell (2 years junior high, 2 years Senior high) and Dutch Noe. Both at Corning. Both put a physically fit, well disaplined, fundamentally sound team on the field. We didn't have much talent or size so we had to be smarter and last longer than the teams we played. Four quarters full blast without mistakes was the only way we could have had the teams we had back in the day. These guys were able to take a bunch of kids and make them believe they were not suppose to lose. A bunch of us owe a lot to these guys for teaching us hard word and determination can lead to success both on and off the field. Thanks Coach Campbell and Coach Noe!

Don Hubbard at Magnolia and David Alpe at Malvern. Back in the 70's these guys had some well coached and loaded athletes on their teams. That old 7AAA conference had some good coaches. Dick Hays at Ashdown, Bill Vining & John Outlaw at Arkadelphia. No off Friday nights. To play Camden, Arkadelphia, Malvern, Magnolia, Ashdown & Crossett in a row was pure murder !

Coach Charlie Whitworth-Sheridan-1964-1977-AhSCA Hall of Fame, one of Bowden Wyatts 25 Little Pigs. Did more with less than most coaches around. I had the priviledge of playing for him '75-'77. He is still a legend here in town.

One of our biggest rivals=JW "Chick" Austin-Hot Springs Lakeside-man those were some Friday Night battles

 And add your Bobcats to that list! Throw in Prescott (Back when Eddie was coaching) and Nashville and that was Fairview's schedule. Yes, pure murder.... :-[

^^^^^^^   Wing, I remember Hope beating CF 13-11 in 73. Hope lost to Camden High 20-18 in Coleman Stadium as Ricky Patton and CF won the conference by beating Arkadelphia that night. That trip back down HWY 4 (280 now) was miserable as we heard CF had won. We missed our extra point try and our two tries at our 2 point conversions. That conference was just as tough as its coaches. Hope had Gaylord Soloman as Head Coach and a stud RB named David Johnson (Hogs) back then.

Oh Coach Johnny Watson, a man that I will never forget.  Of course you can not forget great oh Coach Jerry Wilson, them two guys taught you about life and taught you about team work...Never gave up on a kid and but did not put up with nonsense.  If you wanted to play for them, you had to show them you wanted to be there. Last I heard Coach Watson was the AD at LRC and Coach Wilson was the AD at Jacksonville.

I'm right there with you, toejammer.  I had the pleasure of playing for Coach Bill Reed, also.  No matter how much you think he pushed you, he pushed himself even harder.  He was probably more proud of the accomplishments of his students in the classroom, than any award he received.

I remember seeing Coach Jackson at track meets in Prescott in the mid 70's.  My school was not in his classification, so I did not know much about him until I attended college with several guys from Prescott that played for him.  Great stories and the guys were very reverent about him (still scared of him three years post high school) 😏.

I was coached at Brinkley by Van Paschal. This guy would turn on the stadium lights and practice well after dark. He is one of the finest, Godliest men I know, not to mention a great football coach. We became masters of the Dead T. He's at Barton now, though I wish he was still the Tigers coach.
