The Class 4A high school football champion in Arkansas will be decided Friday night as Warren takes on Booneville for the title at 7 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
Warren (10-3) comes into the game having not lost a game since Week 3, a 32-7 defeat at the hands of Camden Fairview. Since entering conference play, the Lumberjacks have won the 8-4A and have scored at least 31 points in nine of 10 games. Their lone sub-31-point performance occurred last week in a 27-20 victory over Valley View in the Class 4A semifinals.
The Booneville Bearcats, champions of the 4-4A, enter Friday night with an unblemished 14-0 record, scoring 40 or more points in eight games this season. Last week, Booneville defeated Pine Bluff Dollarway 43-14 on the road for a chance at the state title this week.
