Springdale Har-Ber coach Chris Wood announced this morning he is stepping down after 17 seasons there. Wood is one of the more accomplished coaches in the state, having won several state championships as a head coach or assistant at all three schools in Springdale, including Shiloh Christian.
Har-Ber has fallen off the past few years, but this should be a job that generates a lot of interest.
I live in NWA now, but I lived in El Dorado for more than a decade.
That city supports its high school football. The Wildcats play at a large, old stadium located in the middle of town. The high school is across town.
People come out and support them, even if they don’t have a child in school. I worked in the school system there and went to several games over the time I was there. El Dorado football is always a big event.
