Have you found yourself suffering from the football blues? Sluggishly moving through life like a robot while waiting for fall to arrive? Well wait no further. The Ouachita Reapers are answering your prayers. A semi-pro football team with members from Mena to Fort Smith, have partnered up with Sodie Davidson Park in Waldron to bring another level of sports to the area.
Any football enthusiast aged 18 and up, can find themselves on the talented roster that makes up the Reapers. In being the first season, the team is individually funded by the team members who provide their own equipment, purchase their own jerseys, and provide their own way to and from games until sponsors are found. Plus the added cost of officials. At the moment, sponsorship is greatly needed and welcomed.
The Ouachita Reapers will play their first game this Saturday, March 23 in Waldron at Sawer Wright field at 3 p.m. Coached by Donald Thomas and coached and team owned by Wesley Allen Schuller, the Reapers will face first the Arkansas Silverbacks. The Silverbacks are coached by Pat Patterson out of Hope, Arkansas.
Wesley Allen Schuller has been working extremely hard to get this team up and running. “The Ouachita Reapers are glad to be able to call Waldron home. We are proud to be this areas team and we hope to be here for a long time.” For more information, you can contact Mr.Schuller on Facebook or through the team Facebook page, Ouachita Reapers football.
