NHS QB did it all in win against Van Buren last week

Northside senior quarterback Derrick “Deuce” Wise did a little bit of everything in last week’s game at Van Buren. He threw for two first-half touchdown passes, ran for a second-half TD and accounted for 337 yards of total offense. Not to mention he played several snaps in the defensive backfield. And oh yes, Wise even caught a pass for another TD. That touchdown catch came early in the second quarter of Northside’s eventual 46-21 win. It was a play reminiscent of the Philadelphia Eagles’ ballyhooed “Philly Special” during their Super Bowl win against New England last season. Just call it the “Grizzly Special.” With Northside facing a third-and-goal at the Van Buren 8-yard line, Grizzly receiver J.T. Thorne took a hand-off on a reverse. Thorne then saw a wide-open Wise streaking near the right corner of the end zone and released a pass. Wise made the catch in stride and his receiving touchdown gave Northside a 17-7 lead. “I kind of saw the outside linebackers scooting in, so I knew I was going to be open; all I needed was some time,” Wise said. “Then our line blocked good and I was wide open in the end zone; J.T. threw a good pass to me.” For the night, Wise — named the Times Record’s Athlete of the Week — completed 14-of-16 passes for 190 yards and two TDs while rushing for 139 yards on 18 carries, including a 10-yard TD keeper to cap the opening drive of the second half, which extended the Grizzlies’ lead to 39-14. “I think it was pretty good overall,” Wise said. “The line blocked good and we executed well on offense and we got the passing game going. ... We also ran the ball good, so it just all worked out in the end.” Wise’s first TD pass came late in the first quarter with Northside trailing 7-3. He threw a 37-yard strike to a wide-open Jeremy Maffei in the end zone, and that play put the Grizzlies ahead to stay. Late in the first half, Wise connected with Jackson King from 23 yards out, which put Northside up 32-14 going into the break. “My favorite (TD pass) was probably the one that Jeremy caught just because of all the time I had back there. ... He was just wide open in the end zone and it was just a nice, long pass for a touchdown,” Wise said. But aside from the plays that resulted in touchdowns, Wise said his most important play may have come in the second quarter, with Northside holding a 17-14 lead. He threw a pass over the middle to King on a third-and-19 situation, enough for the first down and kept the drive going, with the Grizzlies scoring a touchdown several plays later. Wise’s performance also ensured the Grizzlies weren’t going to have a letdown on the heels of their big win the previous week against Greenwood. “We just had to come out (and play), because after the Greenwood game, we had to make sure our heads weren’t just hyped up and we had to play the game hard like we played against Greenwood. ... We just came out like we played against Greenwood, basically,” Wise said. For the season, Wise has thrown for 380 yards and four touchdowns and is the team’s leading rusher with 255 yards and three TDs. “It’s been pretty good so far,” he said. “I just need to get better at my reads and passing and just try to make more touchdowns for my team.” With the win on Friday, the No. 4 ranked Grizzlies moved to 3-0. They will enjoy a bye this week before starting 7A-Central play next week at Bryant, another team ranked in the top five statewide. “I just feel like we’re more of a team this year,” Wise said. “Everyone’s real close and (a team preseason retreat at) Fort Chaffee helped out a lot, when we talked about our goals and all that for this year, and we’re just trying to make that a reality.”...

SHS Mavs moving forward to this week’s game

The old football coaches adage, “teams tend to improve the most between the first and second week of the season,” was true for the Greenwood Bulldogs last week. For the Southside Mavericks? Practice resumed as usual this week in preparation for Friday’s game with Rogers Heritage. The 52-27 loss to Greenwood last week stung, but coach Jeff Williams believes it’s a matter of correcting errors. “Football is a great game because it breathes new life every week,” Williams said. “It doesn’t matter how you did the week before.” Southside’s short season can be defined in one good game and one good quarter against Greenwood. The other three quarters, where the Bulldogs hung 45 on Southside, is a matter of fixing mistakes, the coach said. “It was disappointing that we had so many penalties and errors,” Williams said. “But this week, it’s all about us. It’s getting back to how we played against Bentonville West.” Penalties, in-game injuries, and the inability to get third-down stops cost the Mavs against the Bulldogs. Senior running back Ricardo Savoy missed most of the final three quarters with a concussion. Southside also lost receiver Jordyn Jackson to a concussion. Savoy is expected to play Friday, Williams said, while Jackson will miss the Heritage game. Savoy has accounted for 421 yards and five touchdowns the first two weeks of the season. “We need to get back to doing things we covered in fall camp,” Williams said. “We need to communicate better on both sides of the ball.” Heritage is 0-2 and finished just 1-9 in coach Tony Travis’ first season in 2017. “We can only control what we need to do,” Williams said. “Tony Travis does a good job, but they’ve (Heritage) struggled the first two games.” Southside II Quarterback Taye Gatewood didn’t have his greatest game on paper last week against Greenwood. But he still managed to throw for 278 yards and three touchdowns. And Gatewood didn’t throw an interception, while he added another rushing touchdown. Through two games, Gatewood has passed for 448 yards (32-of-52) with four touchdowns and no picks. Colton McBride caught five passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in last week’s loss to Greenwood. But senior Tyrese Solomon leads the team through two games with 11 receptions for 130 yards....


Grizzlies’ Hindley wins Fort Smith Invitational

Braeden Hindley didn’t exactly fall out of the sky for coach Jeff Lewis. It only seems that way. The first-year Northside cross country runner won the Fort Smith Invitational on Saturday at Ben Geren Park with a time of 17:46.5. Siloam Springs won the boys overall title, with Southside placing second. “He came to me in February and said he wanted to run track,” Lewis said. “I took him to the (state) indoor meet, and two weeks later he ran 5:06. I was like, ‘OK, this guy can go.’ “He’s trained all summer and has the potential to be the fastest runner I’ve ever had at Northside.” “This is awesome; this is my first win,” Hindley said. “Coming off the Tahlequah meet last week, I was hoping to get around 14, and ended up getting a sub 13:50. I calculated that and thought I would have enough, and I kept pushing.” Hindley finished 11th overall in last week’s meet. “He’s a great kid,” Lewis said. ”(But) he’s just scratching the surface.” Hindley wasn’t the only first-time winner Saturday. Southside sophomore Jacki Martini won the individual girls division with a time of 20:43.5. It was her first-ever win. “It means a lot to me,” Martini said. “I’ve never gotten first place.” Martini, who ran at Ramsey Junior High before coming to Southside, held off Greenwood standouts Taylor Koeth (21:03.0) and Macie Cash (22:02.1). “She ran out real strong and I think she had the confidence to push hard in her first mile,” Southside coach Aaron Kareus said. “She’s strong. She works hard every day.” Martini was almost a full minute faster than she was two weeks ago, Kareus said. Greenwood coach Jim Andrews was pleased with Koeth’s and Cash’s efforts, too. “We’ve had a tough week of practice, so they ran well for what we did,” Andrews said. “It was just another practice, this early in the season. I think they’re a little disappointed in their times, but I’m not. I’m happy with where they’re at.” Heather Boone led Northside to a third place overall finish with a time of 34:43.7. Mansfield ran way with the small-school division. Alyssa Berry took first with a time of 28:01.01, followed by third-place finisher Josefin Loving (28:29.1). Scranton’s Whitney Fox was second (27:04.5) and Magazine’s Carlee Parrish was third overall (28:01.1). Magazine’s Levi Wright was fourth overall (19:46.5) in the small-school division. Subiaco Academy’s Max Linares was fifth (19.57.2)....


Wise has a big night as Northside moves to 3-0

Although Northside was able to move the ball offensively in last week’s win against Greenwood, there was still room for improvement in the passing game. Against a pass-happy Van Buren team, the Grizzlies were able to air it out. Quarterback Derrick “Deuce” Wise threw for 190 yards and two touchdowns and even caught a TD pass of his own in the first half as Northside built a 32-14 lead by halftime. The Grizzlies then went on to a 46-21 win Friday at Blakemore Field to raise their record to 3-0. “I was a little worried about our kids, whatever you want to call it, maybe a little flat, but they responded, especially offensively,” Northside coach Mike Falleur said. “Defensively, we settled down and started playing some. “Sloppy win for us, a lot of penalties (Northside had 12 penalties for 123 yards) and we’ve got to clean that up.” In last week’s 31-16 win against Greenwood, the Grizzlies completed just three passes for 77 yards. But they nearly doubled that total in the first half of Friday’s win as Northside had 148 yards through the air, having completed 10 passes. Wise threw his first TD pass to complete an 8-play 80-yard drive after Van Buren took a 7-3 lead. On the last play of that series, Wise found a wide open Jeremy Maffei in the end zone from 37 yards out, and Henry Hernandez added the PAT to put the Grizzlies up, 10-7, late in the first quarter. The Grizzlies then got the ball back after the Pointers fumbled the snap on a punt attempt, with Northside taking over at the VB 7. On a third-and-goal from the 8, much like the Philadelphia Eagles’ celebrated “Philly Special” in last season’s Super Bowl win, the Grizzlies broke out the “Grizzly Special.” Receiver J.T. Thorne took the hand-off on a reverse and found Wise sprinting down the right side. Thorne then lofted a perfect pass right to Wise, who took it in for the TD, as Northside took a 17-7 lead two minutes into the second quarter. The Pointers cut the lead to 17-14 as quarterback Christian Morrow found Logan Humphries from 14 yards out. But Northside answered again, going 72 yards in nine plays. Wise connected with Jackson King for 33 yards on a third-and-19 situation, keeping the drive going. Then DeMarion Shepard finished things off with a 1-yard run standing up. Northside then went for two and got it as quarterback Matt Hollenbeck found Colt Ferguson in the end zone. After forcing VB to punt on the next series and getting the ball back in Pointer territory, Northside needed just five plays for another TD. This time, Wise found King at the Pointer 5, and King bounced off a tackler and slid into the end zone to complete a 23-yard pass play as Northside led 32-14 with 40 seconds left in the opening half. Wise was just as effective running the ball, as he gained 139 yards on 18 carries. He also crossed the end zone from 10 yards out on the opening series of the second half, as Northside built a commanding 39-14 advantage. “He’s a running back playing quarterback and he’s worked hard to get better and he’s done a great job,” Falleur said of Wise. “He’s worked all winter on throwing the football; he’s just really worked hard and you can tell that he’s improved. He feels more comfortable doing what he’s done.” For the game, Wise completed 14-of-16 passes for 190 yards. King caught six passes for 81 yards, and Maffei had three catches for 51 yards. Tailback Eli Bolton had 45 yards rushing as well. The Grizzlies made it 46-14 with 8:27 left on a 3-yard TD run from tailback Rakaim Jackson. Morrow completed 18-of-26 passes for 179 yards and two TDs, including a 34-yarder to Brayden Rivas in the closing minutes. In addition, Morrow had the Pointers’ first TD, a 2-yard keeper which gave Van Buren (1-1) a 7-3 lead in the opening quarter. Northside finished with 472 total yards (274 rushing, 198 passing), while Van Buren was held to 194 total yards, including 15 on the ground. ...
