Benton Panthers are 6A South conference champs

BentonNo, this post has absolutely nothing to do with the law, but how could those of up in Benton pass up a chance to mention something about the Benton Panthers being undefeated and taking home a 6A South championship after defeating Pine Bluff 39-36 tonight?

Bear with me for just a bit — I’m a proud Benton High School alum and have never seen a season this good in the four decades I’ve kept up with Panthers football.

According to the fine folks over at Saline247.com, Benton has never had an undefeated season. The team finished the season with a 9-0-1 record — the one tie came against the Bryant Hornets at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock at the rival-driven Salt Bowl. Not even the famed 1977 Panthers who managed to bring home a state championship posted an undefeated season.

By the way, if you can’t make it to a Benton game, make sure to tune in to live coverage at Saline247.com. Live video and audio for free? Not bad at all!
