Talented Gosnell QB is three-year starter (09/02/14)
During his career, Gosnell head coach Gary Moody has coached his share of talent. From all-state running backs to Division I lineman, he's seen it all. One thing he hasn't had, however, is a three-year starting quarterback. That changed as soon as he took the job at Gosnell when he handed over the quarterback position to then sophomore, Dwight Griffin, in the Fall 2012...

Improved Chicks fall to 4A power Helena-WH (08/29/14)
Other than the final score, new Blytheville head coach Ben Fisher couldn't be happier with Friday night's scrimmage against Class 4A power Helena-West Helena.

Fisher brings stability to Chickasaws (08/23/14)
Blytheville head football coach Ben Fisher may be in his first year as head coach of the Chickasaws but he sure isn't a stranger to Blytheville. The Wynne native and Arkansas Tech grad has been teaching and coaching in Blytheville since 2000. "Blytheville is definitely home for me and my family," said Fisher. "People will ask me questions about Wynne like I still live there and I don't think of Wynne as home. I lived in Russellville for five years and that wasn't home."...

KIPP Blytheville's basketball season began this week, with both boys and girls tryouts taking place.
