BEARDEN (Hooten's) - The Bearden Bears finished runner-up to Junction City last year in 2A football - and that's exactly where Bearden opens in Hooten's Arkansas Football rankings this fall: number 2 in the state behind top-ranked Junction City.
All-league noseguard Darwin Parham spearheads a Bearden defense that dominated in the playoffs last year.
Dynamic junior quarterback Jamond Young also returns after amassing 350 electrifying yards in the state title game.
