Football Head Coach
Alma Matter: University of Arkansas
Richard Wilson will be entering his fifth season as Head Coach of the Arkansas Baptist College Buffaloes Football team. The native of Hope, Arkansas accepted the challenge of constructing a program from the ground up. The foundation has been properly formed and cured. Year one the objective; ATTITUDE is everything! Strive to play hard, one play at a time. Coach Wilson and his staff met with 175 participants on August 1, 2007 that assembled themselves in Little Rock, Arkansas on a wing and a prayer. The first game for the team was September 1, 2007. Seven weeks later, with approximately 80 players left standing, the Buffaloes stood bloody, but not bowed. The inaugural season results were 0-8. Yet the mission was reached. The players that endured understood attitude. They strove to play hard, one play at a time!
After an intense off-season of emphasizing bigger, faster, stronger, and a bull dog recruiting mentality of the football coaching staff, the second edition of Coach Wilson’s football squad displayed their talent. In year two, the objective was to play hard and play smart. Make the opponent defeat you and do not beat yourself! The 2008 squad showed signs throughout fall camp that they were buying into the objective. Three weeks into the season the Buffs were 2-0, possessing a fourth quarter lead and possession of the football with less than 7 minutes remaining in the game. The opponent was traditional national powerhouse Georgia Military College. Two first downs and the Buffs keep possession of the football and move to 3-0. The offense falters, and the defense allows a drive after containing GMC for the majority of the game. However, the Buffs continued to fight hard and ended the 2008 campaign 4-6.
The 2009 campaign showed vast improvement talent-wise; however, the Buffs ended the season 3-7.
2010 brought new challenges and new partnerships! Arkansas Baptist Football continued to play their home schedule at Little Rock Central High School, but also was invited to have full use of the weight-lifting and off-season facility. Although 2010 produced a 3-6 results, the vast majority of the starters were freshmen! Presently, Arkansas Baptist College Football boasts its largest off-season participation in the program’s young history; over 80 participants!
2011 should prove very exciting!
