VHS Coach Michael Stout receives highest award state may give......

At a football banquet held Saturday night, VHS Coach Michael Stout was presented a senate citation by Senator Eddie Jo Williams, District 29. Williams told Stout it was for stepping up and doing a “big dog’s job,” in adverse conditions. Stout stepped in as interim head football coach July 1, when a coach resigned unexpectedly resulting in a “bad situation.”  Under Stout’s leadership and guidance, Williams said, the team made a first playoff appearance in three years. The senate citation, Williams told Stout, is the highest award the state of Arkansas can give.
