With the first-year jitters out of their system, local semi-pro football team, the Ouachita Reapers, are ready to break out big in their 2020 season. Hosting players from all over the River Valley, this minor league team succeeded nicely in making a name for themselves in year one. The Reapers partnered up with Waldron to make the Bulldog territory their home playing field.
Last season the Reapers played in a league with teams from Hope, Little Rock, Louisiana, and Texas. The 2020 season will see the addition of the Little Rock Patriots, Jonesboro Gladiators, and Tahlequah City Vipers, with the possibility of more teams joining closer to the beginning of league play in March of 2020.
The Reapers will be kicking off their first practice on August 10, in preparation of their upcoming season. Ready to take the team to the next level is Head Coach, Rick Landry, from Heavener, Oklahoma. With many players returning, the Reapers will be showing off some added talent as well. Of course, there is still plenty of time to get signed up to partake in the Reaper experience. There is still a huge need for both Offensive and Defensive Lineman. To play, you must be 18 years or older, able to purchase your own uniforms and gear, and be able to travel to games and practices.
Ouachita Reaper owner, Wesley Allen Schuller, is beyond ecstatic in what the upcoming 2020 season holds. Importantly, the Reapers are still looking for sponsors to support them in their fast-approaching football season. So if your itchin’ to put the pads on and get back on the field, now is your chance to join the Reaper brotherhood while making incredible memories in the process.
