After facing cross-town rival Northside last Friday, the road to state begins tonight.
Quarterback Taye Gatewood received several honors: Arkansas Player of the Week, NWA Touchdown Club Player of the Week, Times Record Athlete of the Week, Fearless Friday Player of the Week, Arkansas Next Level/Realtor Wetzel Player of the Week, and Spirit 106.3 Offensive Player of the Week.

“I try to be vocal as much as possible and motivate my teammates to be the best they can be and get the best out of them each play. I also lead by an example on and off the field,” junior Gatewood said.
Gatewood broke the school and 7A conference passing record during the Little Rock Catholic game.

“I felt like I could complete any pass and my receivers did a great job of getting as many yards as they can. It was just an awesome feeling knowing when you are in the zone and nothing can stop you from getting out of it,” Gatewood said.With Gatewood’s personal passing stats of 22 touchdowns, coach Justin Key praised his efforts.

“He’s gone above my expectations. He’s done a good job leading the offense, giving the ball to receivers, and running the ball,” Key said.
