GRAVETTE -- Bill Harrelson, who led the Gravette football program to unprecedented heights in 12 seasons, has resigned to take a similar position at Ramay Junior High in Fayetteville. Harrelson, who made the announcement last month, will oversee the eighth-grade team at Ramay as well as work with the new seventh-grade football program, which begins in the fall. "It was something I felt like I needed to do for myself," Harrelson said. "I'm getting up in years, and I think the move will help me. Ramay is a good place to work, having been there a couple of years before. So when (Fayetteville coach) Billy Dawson gave me the opportunity, I took it." Harrelson had been at Gravette for 12 years and compiled an 84-54 overall record, including a 52-27 mark in conference games. The Lions went 4-6 his first year in 2006 and missed the playoffs, but they made it to postseason play every year after that.
