LONOKE: Jackrabbits will challenge for 2-4A crown

Conference: 2-4A
Coach: Doug Bost
’15 Record: 5-6

The Lonoke Jackrabbits won three of their last four games to secure the last playoff berth out of the 2-4A in 2015. The Jackrabbits lost in the first round of the 4A playoffs at Gosnell, 54-34.

Logan Dozier looks likely to earn the quarterback starting position after playing at running back in an injury-shortened season last fall. Junior Xavier Hodge is back at running back, alongside junior Michael Hodges and seniors Steven Barrett and Ricky Nichols. Seniors Isaac Toney and Kameron Cole look to lead an inexperienced group of receivers, which includes senior Nick Hazeslip; juniors Daniel Seigrist and Tyler Washington; and sophomore Braidon Bryant. The big men upfront on the offensive line include seniors Daylan Henderson, Zach Murray, Jared Moore and Colton Tidwell; and juniors Jacob Miller, Hunter Clark, James Bryant, Fared Muhammed and Preston Taylor.

Nichols, Barrett, Murray, senior Furlandure Singleton and sophomore Colton Catton rotate on the defensive line. Hodges, Moore, Hodge and senior Dylan Smith lead the linebackers. Cole, Seigrist, Bryant, Washington, senior Lorenzo Negrete and sophomore Dalton Smith will all rotate as new starters in the secondary.

5 Players to Watch:
