2010 Playoffs -- Week 5 Prediction Results

First, we want to say congratulations to Magazine, Rivercrest, and Shiloh Christian on their state final wins. Next, we have reached the end of high school football in Arkansas for 2010.  We are certain that coaches and players are already dreaming about spring football, summer 7-on-7, and the 2011 season. Finally, we have the results of the 2010 Arkansas state football championship predictions from last Friday and Saturday below. 


Shiloh Christian (61), Pulaski Academy (40)

We called the over/under on this game at 100. Hope you picked the over.  Turnovers plagued the Bruins (5 of them) or this game would have been closer. The SC Saints are losing a ton of their key players. We won't be surprised if we see PA back for another run next year.


Rivercrest (14), Harding Academy (10)


Magazine (48), Danville (20)

It ended up being a 2 out of 3 week, and we picked 5 out of the 6 championship games correctly. We hope you enjoyed the football as much as we did this year. We will be trying to put up more content that deals with running a successful 7-on-7 tournament and/or league, 7-on-7 offensive plays, and 7-on-7 defenses. Keep checking for new content or subscribe to our feed (see the "SUBSCRIBE" button on the right). Thanks for a great year!

2010 Playoffs -- Week 5 Predictions

It is truly hard to believe that this is the final week for Arkansas High School football in 2010. The smallest three football classification will determine their champions at War Memorial on Friday and Saturday. We have had a great time following the games this year. 


Pulaski Academy over Shiloh Christian

The over/under on this game has to something like 100.  I wouldn't be surprised if we see the final score end up being 65-63. The PA Bruins have heard all year that the 4A trophy has already been engraved with Shiloh's logo. There has to be extra intensity in their practices this week. The SC Saints know what it takes to win it all, but they haven't truly been tested since being embarrassed by Euless Trinity. We think that this one has all the makings of a classic championship game.

Magazine over Danville

Again, we are just guessing about 2A and 3A. Luke Matheson over at Arkansas Varsity has made his playoff picks for this week. I only agree with his pick of Magazine. Let's hear your picks! Have a great weekend!

2010 Playoffs -- Week 4 Prediction Results

Congratulations to Greenwood, El Dorado, and Bentonville for bringing home the hardware.  We are sure those teams had a really fun trip home from Little Rock.


Bentonville (49), Fayetteville (28)

The Bentonville Tigers finished off a perfect season after being tied at halftime. Just to stir the pot, why wasn't this game played in Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. The teams traveled 3 hours to play each other, and they are located 20 minutes apart. How much sense does that make to anyone except the Arkansas Activities Association?


El Dorado (31), Texarkana (21)

The El Dorado Wildcats finish with a big win over their 6A South rival. That makes the state championship even sweeter.


Greenwood (36), Camden Fairview (35)

We told you that Greenwood wins the close ones.  You can't let the Bulldogs hang around or they will end up beating you.


Pulaski Academy (56), Star City (28)
Shiloh Christian (56), Pulaski Robinson (12)

Both Pulaski Academy Bruins and Shiloh Christian hung 56 points in the semi-finals. This sets up a classic game in War Memorial, but all some Arkansas high school football fans will see is that two private schools are in the final.


Harding Academy (33) , Fountain Lake (15)
Rivercrest (17), West Fork (14)


Danville (20), Bearden (14)
Magazine (55), Magnet Cove (30)

A 6 for 9 week. We nailed the top 4 classifications. The 2A and 3A results surprised us, but we don't really know how to evaluate those teams very well. I am still begging for the "real" Magnet Cove to show up. It seems that I can't pick a MC game to save my life.

2010 Playoffs -- Week 4 Predictions

This week in Arkansas High School football the largest three classifications determine a 2010 champion while the smallest three feature games that will determine the championship pairings next weekend.  All indications are that the weather will be pretty good for these exciting games of week 14.


Bentonville over Fayetteville

The Bentonville Tigers look to finish off a perfect season.  The Purple Bulldogs had to take a road trip for every playoff game on their way to War Memorial. The Tigers faced their toughest test of the year when they won a 38-34 game over Fayetteville in week 4.  Is the real question about this game, "Will Barry Lunney, Sr. retire after an undefeated season?" 


El Dorado over Texarkana

The El Dorado Wildcats only loss this season was in the game at Har-Ber.  They won the first match-up over Texarkana by 6.  We look for a similar margin in Little Rock.  This one will be very entertaining, but the Wildcats bring home back-to-back trophies.


Greenwood over Camden Fairview

Greenwood righted the ship after a slow start.  Camden Fairview has impressed all year long.  We see a close game.  Somehow, Rick Jones and his Greenwood Bulldogs always win those.


Pulaski Academy over Star City
Shiloh Christian over Pulaski Robinson

This week means a tough test for both PA and Shiloh Christian.  The PA Bruins will face a tough Star City Bulldog defense and an offense that can move the football. The Bruins tend to go big offensively when they play better teams (see the Nashville game). The SC Saints will be facing excellent speed from the Senators of Pulaski Robinson. They have seen better (see the Euless Trinity game), but they haven't faced it on a consistent basis this year. If this week plays out as expected, then we will have a classic in War Memorial.


Fountain Lake over Harding Academy
Rivercrest over West Fork


Bearden over Danville
Magnet Cove over Magazine

Again, we are just guessing about 2A and 3A, but Magnet Cove has made a believer out of me after going against them two weeks in a row. Luke Matheson over at Arkansas Varsity has made his playoff picks for this week. Let's hear yours! Have a great weekend!
