Episode 14 – Fun, Fear, Heroes: Salt Bowl 2018

Salt Bowl. Tradition. Benton. Bryant. High School Football. 38,000 people.

For a long time there has been a rivalry between two neighboring cities. Benton and Bryant; cities separated by just a few miles. The rivalry goes across all sports but the biggest game every year is the Salt Bowl. A game between the High School Football teams. The Salt Bowl is played at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, so enough seating is available. Weeks of preparation and excitement, a day of tailgating and family fun. Even those who are not normally fans of football turn out for this great event. Through the first half an exciting game was playing out, and a wonderful halftime show by both schools was enjoyed by all.

Then came the third quarter: A fight broke out, not between the two schools, but with someone in the stands. Then the shout… “Gun!”
