ROGERS — At the end of his junior season, Rogers High pitcher Harrison Heffley wasn’t sure if he wanted to play to continue his baseball career after high school.

But the Mounties coaches urged Heffley to go to a camp this past summer at Arkansas. After an impressive effort, Heffley was offered a scholarship, and he made it official Friday when he signed a national letter of intent to play baseball for the Razorbacks.

Teammate Sage White also signed to play college baseball Friday when the Mounties outfielder inked his national letter of intent with Harding University.
