The 501 LIFE staff is excited to announce the members of the 2019 edition of the 501 Football Team. The team features 27 student-athletes — the best the 501 has to offer both on and off the field. Every county in the 501 is represented.

Sponsors for this year’s 501 Football Team are Conway Regional Health System, First Security Bank and Conway Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Center.

2019 team members include: Weston Amos (Clinton), Brett Barbaree (Fountain Lake), Ryan Barnard (Greenbrier), Branden Benson (Searcy), Brandon Bishop (Central Arkansas Christian), Mason Brazeal (England), Dylan Briggs (Vilonia), Brock Duncan (Cutter Morning Star), Parker Golden (Harding Academy), Brick Gore (Maumelle), Jake Harmon (Magnet Cove), Devin Hill (Hot Springs), Alex Holland (Beebe), Reed Hughes (Conway), Dallas Lewis (Malvern), Adam Martin (Heber Springs), Tayshun Mattison (Mayflower), William Newton (Haskell Harmony Grove), Braden Qualls (Lake Hamilton), Ricardo Rangel (Bigelow), Steven Rector (Morrilton), Brendan Roberts (Bald Knob), Spencer Sipes (Quitman), Reid Standridge (Perryville), Beau Stevenson (Conway Christian), Graham Turner (Cabot) and Kadin Walker (Bismarck).

Players were nominated by their respective coaches and selected by the 501 LIFE staff. Nominations were weighted equally between on- and off-the-field attributes.

The team met at Conway Christian School’s field for a photo shoot.

In addition to being recognized in this year’s edition of 501 LIFE’s football preview issue, 501 Football 2019, each player will be featured individually throughout the fall online at and in 501 Sports Extra, 501’s sports e-newsletter. (To sign up, visit or email [email protected].)

Player features will begin publishing weekly online and in 501 Sports Extra starting in mid-August before the kickoff of the 2019 high school football season.
