Why Hendrix Is Reviving Its Football Program


Arkansas sportswriter EvinDemirel has been working on a report documenting a trend in the world of higher education: Small liberal arts colleges starting or re-starting football programs as part of their long-term growth plans.

His work was featured in this past Sunday's edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

KUAR's Karen Tricot Steward spoke with Demirel about the trend and what it means for one Arkansas college, Hendrix College in Conway.
