39 PREP RALLY: CLASS 4A | 8.20.2023 Drew Moore, who will hold just about every school passing record when he finishes his career. He tossed for 2,904 yards and 36 touchdowns last year. Moore will again have plenty of weapons around him though. Running back Kale Jones (912 yards on 148 carries with nine touchdowns) and wide receivers Jace Birkes (42 catches for 1,045 yards with 12 touchdowns) and Keller Price (58 catches for 781 yards and 14 touchdowns) all return to be big-play threats for Lincoln. Huntsville, Green Forest and Berryville round out a loaded 4A-1 conference that is as deep as any in the state. 4A-4 Conference Lamar earned the No. 2 seed from the 4A-4 conference last year heading into the playoffs, and the Warriors now look to build off that seeking their first conference title since 2008. It's something the program has been building toward by winning nine or more games in four of the past five seasons. e Warriors had three rushers go for more than 1,000 yards last year but return just one of them in Jarrett Dalton, who will play a big role for the team again. Junior quarterback Caleb Green is projected to be a bigger factor in the offense throwing and running the ball more. Lamar had one of the better defenses in the conference, finishing with the second fewest points allowed. Will Sanders (team-high 107 tackles) returns to lead that unit from his linebacker position. 4A-7 Conference Cain White takes over the Waldron football program hoping to guide the Bulldogs into the playoffs, which has happened three times in the past 19 seasons in program history. Waldron likely just needs to win one game in conference play to make it. Quarterbacks Keegan Lynch and Noah Patrick will look to guide the team that is shiing from the spread to the flexbone.
