Junction City aims for three-peat

Junction City aims for three-peat

Posted: Updated:
Junction City, AR -

Junction City has made it's mark on Arkansas football, and as this season gets ready to kickoff is ready to defend its back-to-back state titles. We bring you more on a school which has won five state championships in the last 11 years.

It's been a tale of 2 state championships for the junction city dragons, winning on a last second Hail Mary in 2012.

"You know, on the last play of the ball game in the state championship, also against Bearden which is in our conference, yeah it was good," said head coach David Carpenter.


"You know we got down in 0.9 seconds and all of us knew it because he called the Hail Mary," added lineman Taylor Morgan.


"It was amazing. I just wanted to cry, really," explained running back Jaqwis Dancy.


And a total domination blowout in 2013.


"The repeat was just as good, especially because we won 60 to nothing. That just made it even sweeter," said Morgan.


"Winning one is great, but then if you get a back-to-back in there, that makes it real special," described Carpenter.


"The last second Hail Mary will be the one we're always known for, but it sure was good wining 60 to nothing," added Morgan.


And the Junction City senior class is ready to claim number three. Six of their seniors have been starting since sophomore year so the Dragons know they have experience on their side.


"It's going to be a big asset. We'll be blocking for Qwis and Josh.  Just got to keep looking to the next game. You can't get to thinking you're too good," explained Morgan.


"If we keep our heads on straight and play like we're supposed to, we have a pretty good chance of going back," explained Dancy.


And it certainly won't hurt that the Dragons return the 2-time state championship game MVP Jaqwis Dancy who rushed for 1,674 yards and 17 touchdowns. Junction City opens up the season against Smackover on September 5th.
