Press Box named in honor of the Voice of the Bulldogs
For the past 50 years, our Waldron Bulldog family has been honored to have Mr. Fritz Morales serve as the Voice of the Bulldogs. You would be hard pressed to find a Waldron fan in the stands tonight that could not remember a time when Fritz wasn’t our voice.
Throughout his 50 years of dedication and service to our school district, Fritz has announced not only Football games, but basketball, and track meets as well. It has been my honor for each of the coaches to work with Fritz during many track meets.
Fritz always has a kind word for everyone and is a huge part of our Bulldog family and he has a passion for Bulldog athletics and for our community. We are so grateful for his service over the past 50 years.

Arkansas Razorbacks Scrimmage
When 1,000-yards rushing running back Jonathan Williams opted not to enter the 2015 NFL draft and return to the Razorbacks for his senior year, Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema opted to take care of him last spring.

While learning today the destination and opponents for his Razorbacks at the NCAA's baseball regionals, Arkansas Coach Dave Van Horn also will monitor the progress of his hottest late-season pitcher gone ailing.

41,220 attend Red-White game
After last spring's Red-White intrasquad game it seemed Razorbacks fans spent half the summer griping about the Arkansas offense in general and quarterback Brandon Allen in particular. They'll have to change topics should they choose to gripe into this summer. For the 41,220 announced as attending Saturday's Red-White game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium can vouch that Allen and the offense performed exceptionally even minus 1,000-yards rushing running backs Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins sitting out to avoid any risk of closing Saturday's spring ball curtain with injuries impeding them into the real season come fall.
