The unbeaten and reigning Class 3A state champion Prescott Curley Wolves football team got their taste of summer gridiron competition last week in two big battles during 7 on 7 tournaments hosted at Benton and Camden-Fairview High Schools. The Curley Wolves finished second place overall in Benton as they fell short to Nashville in the championship game.
The Curley Wolves battled Little Rock Parkview, Bryant, Harmony Grove Haskell, Benton and Searcy during Pool Play and tournament mode in Benton. Prescott football head coach Tommy Poole was very pleased of the fight his Curley Wolves brought to Benton. Despite a slow start, Poole praised his club for keeping a tough spirit to compete and not give up to finish as one of the top two teams to compete.
"We started out slow, but picked things up. Some of our players got hurt but the kids really fought hard. We were short-handed, but kept going. This was the first thing we really have done this summer from a team aspect, but I'm proud of their effort," Poole said.
After their participation in Benton, the Curley Wolves competed at Camden-Fairview 7 on 7 football tournament. The Curley Wolves finished 1-1 despite short-handed again from some key players suffering a few minor injuries during battle in Benton. Coach Poole felt this was a good opportunity for the younger players to grasp experience as they'll head into the fall football season.
"We were short-handed going into Camden, but our younger guys got to play and get experience. We got what we wanted from it. The kids competed and just a good learning experience for our younger kids," Poole said.
As dead week approaches, the Curley Wolves will be away from summer competitions, but keeping a steady focus and work ethic in the weight room to build their strength. Next month in July, the Curley Wolves will hit their summer workouts hard as they'll be competing in more 7 on 7 competitions every Tuesday and hosting senior and junior high football team camps every Thursday in Prescott leading into fall practice in August.
