The Arkansas Sabers are the newest team to join the semi-pro Alliance Football League, which has been in existence since 1999.

Owner/manager David Smith was previously with the disbanded Arkansas Rhinos and Central Arkansas Bonecrushers and many former players, with former members of the Arkansas Pirates, are joining the Sabers, who will open play next year.

Head coach Charles Reynolds has been with the semi-pro Abilene, Texas, Gladiators; Arena Football’s Abilene Ruff Riders and the Pirates. The Sabers are now interviewing for assistant coaches and volunteers for game-day operation, cheer coordinators and a public address, “voice of the Sabers” for all home games.
The Sabers are also seeking sponsors and donations to help with operational costs of the season. The team will hold an NFL-style tryout/combine in February for players 18 years and older.  For information contact Smith at (501) 743-6326 or e-mail
