WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. (KAIT) - We're 50 days away from Arkansas State football and 7 weeks away from Football Friday Night.
A former Red Wolf will be a head coach this fall. Jeff Blake played fullback and tight end for A-State from 2007 to 2010, scoring 5 total touchdowns.
He's served as an assistant coach at his alma mater Greene County Tech along with Hoxie. Blake was hired in April to take over at Walnut Ridge. The new Bobcat head coach has been influenced by several coaches along the way including Hoxie's Tom Sears.
