In good hands

Videographer Eric White and I have spent most of the last couple of weeks gathering material for our preseason football previews, which will again consist of a Conway television special and team preview pages in our print edition.

Again, there will be 30-minute specials for both college and high schools premiering at the end of the month.

The Faulkner County college and high school coaches have visited our office and we've been to theirs, watching and filming practices at each school.

I can tell you this. Coaching football is in good hands in Faulkner County. The coaches were very cooperative with our needs. Beyond that, it was impressive to watch them work.

UCA coach Steve Campbell, Hendrix coach Buck Buchanan, Conway coach Clint Ashcraft, Greenbrier coach Randy Tribble, Vilonia coach Jim Stanley, Mayflower coach Todd Langress and Conway Christian coach Michael Carter know their football, have a passion for working with young people and are men of good character.

I wouldn't have a problem having a son playing for any of them.
