Article compliments of Daisha Thompson, Zebra Mom Squad
It was Friday, November 4th and it’s game day y’all!! And it also happens to be the last game of the regular season for the Zeb- ras! Playoff spots were determined tonight and regardless of the outcome we are extremely proud of the 2022-2023 Zebras for persevering through circumstances that would have destroyed the average team. In case you are unaware or have forgotten, they lost their Head Coach and over half of their Assistant Coaching Staff in a span of a couple months at the end of last school year. The team went into Spring/Summer practices un- sure who would be leading them into the next season. Despite it all they continued to show up. They continued to work and fought to make noise in a new conference against teams they had no experience playing against. Coach Micheal Williams entered with a fresh philosophy, open mind and no nonsense approach to coaching and the boys bought in 100%!!! It is evi- dent in their play, classroom behavior/performance and over all demeanor. He then assembled one of the finest coaching staffs in the state of Arkansas while making sure veteran staff were an integral part of the process as well! Once everyone got togeth- er, they gelled and hit the ground running! We am thankful for the victories both on and off the field as well as the culture shift and blessings to come! The Z’s didn’t pull out the win but never quit! Final score was 24-19.
