POTEAU POUNDS DE QUEEN 47-14

The De Queen Leopards got off to a sluggish start on the road, and a talented Poteau Pirates team took full advantage to pull away to a 47-14 victory Friday night in Poteau.

The Pirates turned a De Queen interception and a blocked Leopard punt into a 20-0 lead midway through the second quarter. The Leopards then drove 65 yards in five plays, including 61 yards on four carries by Hunter Earney, to pull to within 20-7 on Earney’s 15 yard scoring run. But Poteau scored twice more on 54 and 65 yard pass plays to take a 33-7 lead into the locker room at half.

Poteau recovered an onside kick to start the second half, and quickly increased the lead to 47-7 midway through the third quarter, invoking the 35 point sportsmanship rule.

The Leopards finished the game with a tremendous drive that covered 80 yards in 21 plays. Sophomore Marquez Ester had 13 carries for 45 yards on the drive. The score came on a one yard sneak by quarterback Mack Carver. Poteau ran out the clock to claim the 47-14 victory.

Earney had 115 yards on 13 carries, all in the first half. Ester, our McDonalds Player of the Game, wound up with 90 yards on 20 carries.

De Queen falls to 1-2 on the season. The Leopards open up 5A South Conference action Friday night against the Bobcats in Hope.

DE QUEEN LEOPARDS VS NASHVILLE SCRAPPERS

09/08/17


Thanks to Scott Dunson (KMTB Radio Nashville, AR) for the football pictures.

 

LEOPARDS UPSET NASHVILLE 49-42

09/08/17


There have been some stunning upsets in the De Queen-Nashville rivalry since the series began in 1911. But, Friday night’s 49-42 shocker pulled off by the Leopards ranks right up there as one of the best! After the Scrappers won their season opening game by 40, and the Leopards dropped their opener by 35, nobody gave the Leopards a shot….except for the coaching staff and the Leopards themselves!

Hunter Earney was incredible. Earney rushed for 292 yards and four touchdowns on 27 carries. He had a 40 yard “pick six” return for a score, and accounted for six tackles, including a key seven yard quarterback sack. Earney also returned a kick-off 62 yards to set up another score.

The Leopards passing attack showed significant improvement. Mack Carver completed five of six for 72 yards and a score. Hayden Harp had three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown.

The Offensive Line dominated Nashville at the point of attack. In the second half, the Leopards controlled the football for almost 20 of the 24 minutes, including a 15 play 80 yard drive that took 8:46 off the clock. Nashville only had 10 second half offensive snaps, and two of those resulted in interceptions.

Speaking of the defense, the Leopards picked off five Scrappers passes on the night. Besides Earney’s “pick six”, Marquez Ester had two interceptions. Carver and Sedrick Bell also had key picks. Rolando Sotelo led the tackle charts with 11. Adrian Mendoza was credited with eight stops.

The kicking game was solid too. Carver averaged 39 yards on three punts, and Honorio Dominguez converted all seven extra point attempts.

Nashville played well, rolling up 441 yards in total offense. But on this special night, the Leopards were a little bit better. The Saline River Stick stays in De Queen for the first time since 2011. The Scrappers had won 18 out of the last 19 meetings.

MENA 41 DE QUEEN 6

The Mena Bearcats made two big plays in the kicking game, and turned three De Queen turnovers into scores enroute to a 41-6 season-opening victory in Mena Friday night.

The Bearcats led 13-0 at the half, and extended the lead to 27-0 after three quarters. De Queen avoided the shut-out on a one yard quarterback keeper by Mack Carver with 9:49 to play.

The Leopards displayed a strong rushing game. Nine different ball carriers totaled 229 yards on the ground. Hunter Earney led the way with 52 yards on 12 carries.

Thursday morning, Savanah Nickerson signed a letter of intent to run cross country for Henderson State University in Arkadelphia. She was joined by her mom and dad, Tami and Chad Nickerson and her little sister, Perry.

 

Nickerson said she never imagined she would running in college, but one day her coach told her there was a scout there to see her run, so she showed up and showed out.

 

Coach Dennis Chaney said he was very lucky to have such talented runners here at De Queen and Savanah was among a very special group of seniors.

 

Martha Mosqueda will sign her letter of intent to run cross country with Henderson State University on Monday morning, here at the KDQN studios.

Rotary Cup Presented to Logan Hall

The presentation of the Rotary Cup to the outstanding senior member of the De Queen Leopards football team has been a tradition since 1936 – 80 years ago. At Monday’s noon meeting of the Rotary Club, "The Voice of the Leopards", Jay Bunyard, presented the 2016 award to Logan Hall.

Logan, the son of Charlie and Kristy Hall, was an all-conference performer for the Leopards in both his junior and senior seasons. Playing receiver on offense and safety on defense, Hall had 16 receptions for 283 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, he was second on the team in tackles with 56, deflected 12 passes, had two interceptions, and a fumble recovery. During his junior season, Hall tied for second best in the state with eight interceptions. Hall also returned seven kicks for 58 yards, as he rarely came off the field for the Leopards.

Hall also excels in the classroom with a grade point average of 3.617, and he recorded a 30 on his A.C.T. Test. He’s involved with Future Farmers of America, Future Teachers of America, National Honor Society, Yearbook Staff, Drama Club, and Trap Shooting.

In Track, Hall is a remarkable story. He took up high jumping in January of this year. During the spring, he won the Class 5A State Championship with a leap of 6’9". Hall is shooting for the all-time Arkansas State Record of 7-1 and a half inches this upcoming spring.

Hall recently signed a letter of intent for a track scholarship at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. He plans to earn a teaching degree at U.C.A.

The Rotary Cup presentation is based upon performance on the field, character and leadership, scholastic achievement, and involvement in other sports and school activities.
