What a football season it was for the Arkadelphia Badgers this past fall. In his second year at the school, Head Coach Trey Schucker and his staff managed to take a Badger team that was considered “under the radar” in the pre-season to their third semi-finals appearance in five years.

The Badgers posted a 10-4 overall record and finished second in the 7-4A conference, just behind Class 4A State Champion Joe T. Robinson. The program saw multiple athletes receive postseason honors and even witnessed a few players sign to play college football last week.

All-State linebacker Landon Kuhn decided to sign with Ouachita Baptist, where he will likely continue to play the linebacker position. Kuhn was instrumental to the Badger’s defense last fall, racking up 126 tackles, including 13 tackles for losses and 4.5 sacks.

Last Tuesday, Henderson State received National Letters of Intent (NLI) from three athletes: All-state running back and 4A offensive player of the year Jaishon Davis, all-state wide receiver Alex Loy, and talented athlete Braylon Bailey. Davis has tallied 1,548 yards on the ground and scored a total of 32 touchdowns, and Alex Loy led Class 4A in receiving yards and touchdowns, with 1,010 yards and 18 touchdowns.

It was bittersweet for Arkadelphia watching these young men continue their future paths. Now, they must find the next men up to take their spots for the 22’ season.
