The Arcadian recently had the chance to talk with former Bulldog players about their memories of the DeSoto-Hardee football rivalry. Al Blackwood and Arthur Wiley are now longtime assistant coaches at the DeSoto County Middle School. Darrel Nicklow and Bumper Hay are assistant football coaches at the high school.
