Ouachita Baptist destroys stadium

Ouachita Baptist Football

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. -- Ouachita Baptist has demolished its home football stands to make way for a new structure expected to be in place by next season.

The new stadium will be named for Cliff Harris, who attended OBU and later played in five Super Bowls for the Dallas Cowboys. Harris was present for Friday's demolition.

The school's sports information director, Kyle Parris, said the demolition took longer than expected when the stadium's press box remained intact after much of the rest of the stadium came down. It eventually was dismantled.

A.U. Williams Field dates to 1912 but the seating torn down was erected in the 1960s and 1970s.
