The high school football season kicks off in five days and the Pine Bluff Zebras hope to duplicate last year's march to the state championship game.
Standout Quarterback Claude Johnson led Pine Bluff to 17 wins over the past two years. Johnson graduated in the spring, but the Zebras return ten starters who helped them advance to the finals last year for the first time in 14 seasons. Pine Bluff opens the season ranked No. 6 in class 6A by Hootens Arkansas football.
