Osceola preparing for first state finals appearance in 20 years

OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) - Saturday is a day 20 years in the making for Osceola.

Bill Clinton was president the last time the Seminoles were on the warpath to War Memorial. Fittingly Clinton Gore led the purple and gold in the 1998 state finals after winning it all in 1997.

Now Robert Hooks leads the 13-1 Noles to Little Rock. Matthew Schwartz profiled them ahead of Saturday’s matchup with 14-0 Booneville.

Kickoff is at 12:00pm at War Memorial Stadium. The 3A State Championship Game will be televised on AETN.
