Brandon Burlsworth Football Camps Coming In June

HARRISON – With the August 2016 release of the movie GREATER, people from all across the country have been inspired by the story of Brandon Burlsworth. And now entering it’s eighteenth year, the Brandon Burlsworth Football Camps give young people the opportunity to learn the game from Burlsworth’s teammates and many other former Razorback stars.

The football camp dates are June 1st in Harrison at F.S. Garrison Stadium and June 2nd in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium. These camps will feature many former Razorback football greats such as Anthony Lucas, Joe Dean Davenport and Ron Calcagni.

Burlsworth’s high school coach Tommy Tice is the coordinator of these camps that are open to students who will be entering the 3rd through 9th grade next school year.

The camps are a great experience for the very young athlete as well as the more experienced junior high player. The younger campers will learn proper technique, which is very important, but also learn that football is a game and should be fun. In the older age groups the instruction will intensify in all phases of the game with each camper receiving more advance technique training.

The fee for the camp is $35.00 for pre-registered campers and $45.00 for day of camp registration. Deadline for pre-registration is May 25th. Registration is available on the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation web site at brandonburlsworth.org. All proceeds go directly to the foundation’s programs for underprivileged children. -more-

Businesses and individuals can also sponsor children who cannot afford to attend on their own. Since these children are the primary focus of the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation, sponsorships are greatly encouraged. You may sponsor children on the foundation website or call 870-741-1443 for more information.

Campers will need to furnish their own workout clothing, including shoes or cleats, shorts and t-shirt. This is a non-contact camp and no pads or helmets will be worn. Each camp will begin at 8:30am and will conclude with an autograph session at 12:30pm.

For questions regarding the camps, log-on the web site at brandonburlsworth.org or you may call 866-534-2875.

Participating Razorback Players: Chad Abernathy, Seth Armbrust, Mitchell Bailey, David Bazzel, D’Andre Berry, Freddy Burton, Richie Butler, Ron Calcagni, Grant Cook, Joe Dean Davenport, Grant Garrett, Wade Grayson, Price Holmes, James Johnson, Bo Lacy, Anthony Lucas, Jonathan Luigs, Clarke Moore, Dahrron Moss, Nathan Norman, Mitch Petrus, Kenny Sandlin, Michael Snowden and Austin Tate.

Lady Leopards Win District Title

The De Queen Lady Leopards won the class 5A South District Tournament with a 4-2 win over White Hall on Wednesday at Hope. The Lady Leopards improve to 23-6 on the season with their 15th consecutive win.

De Queen took the lead in the bottom of the first inning with solo home runs to centerfield by Jessica Williams and Kinlee Runnels. But the key play of the inning, and perhaps the game, occured in the top of the first when leftfielder Sydney Hill made a catch against the wall to prevent a 3-run home run by White Hall.

The Lady Leopards added a run in the 2nd when Tatyana Tramble walked and later scored on an error. De Queen scored its final run in the 6th when Reisa Bakenhus hit an RBI double to drive in Lexy Taylor.

Taylor pitched all 7 innings for De Queen, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits while striking out 5 and walking just 2.

Ashdown @ Cossatot River 02/05/18

The Pantherettes were victorious Friday evening over the Lady Eagles in what was a spoiled Homecoming night for the host team.

The Pantherettes opened up an 8 to 1 lead to start the game but the Lady Eagles came back, and the two teams swapped leads throughout the 2nd quarter before the end of the 1st half coming to an end with a 20-20 tie.

In the 2nd half the Lady Eagles built up to a 6-point lead which they would hold onto throughout the 3rd quarter, but in the 4th quarter the Pantherettes began chipping away at the lead and finally tied the game at 40 with 6.7 seconds left in the game.

Cambrey McCullough took what looked to be the last shot of regulation from three-point range with 3.2 seconds left in the game and missed but Adaysiah Thompson fought for the rebound and put up a prayer off the glass.  As the siren sounded and time officially expired the ball dropped through the net and the Pantherettes pulled off the heart stopping victory 44-42 over the Lady Eagles.

For the Lady Eagles,  Jade Richardson led all scorers with (12) followed by Ashlen Gonzalez with (11), and Regan Richardson with (8). 

For the victorious Pantherettes, Adaysiah Thompson had (26) followed by (6) points by Cambrey McCullough, and (5) points a piece by Zakiah Rhone and Kenya Wilson.

The excitement wasn’t over as in the nightcap game the Eagles came out determined to not let homecoming be completely spoiled and fought their way to a 44-41 victory over the Ashdown Panthers.

Ashdown opened up a 6-point lead early in the game and looked like they were going to cruise to a victory but The Eagles came storming back in the 2nd quarter and took a 2-point lead into half time 21-19.

In the 2nd half the Eagles built their own 6-point lead only to see it disappear to a 40-40 tie in late in the fourth, and it looked eerily similar too the Sr. Girls contest.  However, the Eagles battled and Sophomore Center Coy Frachiseur stepped up with some huge plays to end the game blocking and causing turnovers.

After a free-throw by Garrett Watkins gave the Eagles a 41-40 lead Ashdown came down the court and Lamar Wilkerson drove the left side of the lane to give them the lead, but Coy Frachiseur came up huge blocking the shot and taking possession and then taking the foul.  Frachiseur then iced the game with 1.9 seconds left on the clock by hitting both free-throws and giving the eagles the final lead 44-41.

Ashdown tried a desperation full-court 3-point shot that came up short and The Eagles saved homecoming night with heart stopping victory.

For the Panthers, Kaiden Hunter led the scoring with (11), followed by Jimmy Dunn, Lamar Wilkerson and John Smith with (6) each.

For the Eagles,  Coy Frachiseur led the scoring with (15) followed by (13) by Cody Brown and (6) points a piece by Brayden Smith and Trenton Rosson.

2017 Rotary Cup Awarded to Hunter Earney

The presentation of the Rotary Cup has been a De Queen Leopards football tradition since 1936. At Monday’s noon meeting of the Club, “The Voice of the Leopards” Jay Bunyard presented the 2017 award to tailback and outside linebacker Hunter Earney.

 

Earney was named to the 2017 Class 5A All State Team as he rushed for 1,388 yards and 17 touchdowns on 202 carries. He’s the first Leopard to top the thousand yard rushing mark since 2011. Defensively, Earney recorded 55 tackles, and had a key interception return for a touchdown against Nashville. In the 49-42 upset win over the Scrappers, Earney also rushed for 292 yards and four touchdowns.

 

Earney was a member of the 2017 track team that won a state championship. He was all-conference in baseball, and he’s a member of this year’s Leopard basketball team.

 

Earney, the son of Chad and Chayla Earney, also excels in the classroom. He has a grade point average of 3.70, and he’s a member of the National Honor Society.

     

Bunyard says the award is based on four criteria: involvement in other sports and school activities; character and leadership; scholastic achievements; and performance on the football field.

     

After graduation in May, Earney plans to attend the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, and major in accounting.
