    Not too keen on the paper, but as far as the town goes, it's your typical east/northeast Arkansas town. Football's big, but so are yard sales, fried catfish and duck season. Wynnes is one of the better small cities to live in when it comes to east/northeast Arkansas. If you're into the small-town, southern living, it should be right up your alley.

    You better know how to run the '27 Trap' if you want this job
  5. Forgive my ignorance about ``27 Trap''...

    Does that mean you'll be calling the football team's plays as well as covering their games?

    I'm genuinely confused about the term.

    The legendary former coach at Wynne, Don Campbell, was known for his archaic Diamond-T offense that produced extremely successful results. It was estimated that until he retired two years ago his teams would run the '27 trap' between 65 and 75 percent of the time on offense, if not more.

    DeAngelo Williams of the Carolina Panthers was product of Wynne, Campbell and the '27 Trap'
  7. The running joke while Don Campbell was at Wynne was the over/under on the number of times his team would throw the ball on Friday night.

    In his final game, the Jackets lost to Pulaski Academy in the 2006 5A playoffs 43-42.

    PA threw the ball 55 times, Wynne less than 10.

    threadjack over...back to this job, which i admittedly know nothing about :D

    Be prepared and bring a mosquito net. Last time I drove through that area I had to stop twice and scrape the bug gunk off my windshield. Those rice fields will make a purple martin fat.
