The time has come for the big game between the Bryant Hornets and Conway Wampus Cats. If they weren’t rivals before, they sure are now that the coaches have switched around.
You may remember in the Spring of 2023, Quad Sanders took a job at Jonesboro High School. Sanders was the Defensive Coordinator at Bryant for five years. It was announced in March 2023 that he would be the new Head Coach at Jonesboro. But something happened to draw him back to Bryant: Head Hornets Coach Buck James announced in May that he was going to Conway. Was there a lot of controversy about this? Yes there was.
