With the end of the AAA dead period, and with this year's FASDOGS program winding down, Greenwood High School Head Coach Rick Jones released the 2016 summer football schedule last week.

Once again expectations are high for the Bulldogs, ranked #1 in Class 6A by Hooten's Arkansas Football preview magazine. The 'Dogs will also be playing in a new league this fall, the 6A West, which includes...continued

GHS two-sport star commits to Arkansas

Greenwood High School junior Connor Noland didn't want to needlessly drag out the college recruitment process, so he ended the drama early, announcing last week that he would attend the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. He declared his intentions on his 17th birthday.

Smith relishes opportunity as new Greenwood AD

By Richard White

There was an epidemic going around Sebastian County this past spring, a very peculiar bug that seemed to infect only athletic directors. Jerry Cecil of Greenwood and Jim Rowland of Fort Smith both tendered their resignations after decades of loyal service to their respective school districts.

Both positions have since been filled, leading to yet another high profile vacancy when University of Arkansas at Fort Smith (UAFS) Athletic Director Dustin Smith resigned his job to succeed Jerry Cecil as Greenwood's new Director of Athletics Operations.

Cecil served Greenwood Public Schools for 31 years, the last 17 as Athletic Director. He was also an assistant superintendent and former high school principal with the district. Under his leadership, the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs captured 27 team state championships, 23 individual state championships, were state runner-ups 29 times, and earned...continued
