300 and counting
Friday night's game broadcast against Ashdown marked the 300th football game broadcast by Jay Bunyard. Affectionately known as "The Voice of the Leopards", Bunyard has not missed announcing a game in the last 27 years--he even cut short a Cancun vacation for his fifth wedding anniversary when the Leopards made it to the State playoffs with a 14-0 record.
To commemorate the milestone, Athletic Director Bob Sikes presented Jay with a plaque and Mayor Billy Ray McKelvy declared September 19th as "Jay Bunyard Day" in De Queen. KDQN played messages throughout the day from several of the previous Leopard coaches congratulating Jay on his accomplishment.
