Waldron Prepping To Strike Down Gentry


With their DeQueen scrimmage canceled, the Waldron Sr High Bulldogs will finally get the chance tonight to see what they are made of when they face off with the Gentry Pioneers. Under the new leadership of head coach, Doug Powell, the Bulldogs have spent countless hours over the summer preparing for this very day. “We weren’t able to have our scrimmage which hurts. Nothing can replace the on-field experience we could have gotten from that scrimmage. We don’t have any film of Gentry but Coach Bigham and I exchanged information by phone. Each of us knows the general setup of our teams and will be flying blindfolded for lack of a better term. We have prepared for a wide range of looks and will have to make in-game adjustments as needed for tonight.”

With both teams pretty evenly matched in 4A football, Gentry does have the edge in the live game category due to them getting to scrimmage with West Fork. When it comes to similarities, the Bulldogs and the Pioneers have more in common than people think. “I think speed-wise we will be comparable. We are not big on the line so Gentry will most likely be bigger than us. Without film to watch, it is hard to know with certainty what tonight holds but I expect two even teams to compete in a closely contested match.”

The last time these two teams went to battle on the gridiron was in 1992 at Gentry where Waldron went home with the loss. For tonight though, not only will the Bulldogs be on their home turf but they have zero plans on repeating the outcome of ’92. This evening, Coach Powell will be looking to his seniors to help carry the Bulldogs to victory. “The senior class has been excellent at leading up to this point and I expect they will continue to do so tonight.” Those seniors include Bryson Bailey, Caden Fuller, Braden Williams, Isaac “The Real” Villarreal, Dayton Lovett, Jesse Dees, Cody Starr, Dale Lecita, Ethan Slater, David Blevins, and Rayce Leon.

The Bulldogs will be taking on the Gentry Pioneers tonight, August 28 at 7 pm.
