The National Federation of State High School Associations has named Bryant head football coach Buck James as the 2018-19 Arkansas Football Coach of the Year.
In a letter to Bryant athletic director Mike Lee, NFHS executive director Karissa Niehoff said that James was nominated by the Arkansas Activities Association as the most deserving recipient for the honor.
James led the Bryant Hornets to a 13-0 season and a second consecutive Class 7A State championship.
“This year’s honorees were selected based upon their coaching performance in the 2018-19 school year, lifetime community involvement, school involvement and philosophy of coaching.”
James just completed his fourth season as the helm of the Hornets. He has led the team to a 43-8 record overall and 24-4 mark in conference play.
