With national signing day just around the corner on Feb. 1, we've got several exciting recruiting-related tweets to get to, so we're diving right into the other top tweets from the past week.

Besides, no one really reads all the usual jibber jabber blah blah blah that typically leads this thing off.

This week's ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week comes from Prairie Grove softball player Madison Brockman.

It's simple, but simply perfection. Well, other than the minor grammatical hiccup. (Madison, because your thief is unknown, it should be "whomever.")

But who (or is it whom?? smh) friggin' cares. This is Twitter, not English 101 … Continue Reading ››

OK, so we took a break from our weekly ARPreps.com Tweets of the Week feature during the holidays.

We missed you. Did you miss us? We hope so. And judging by the handful of DMs we received about it, we're certain at least a few of your holidays weren't as cheerful without your weekly dose of tweets. We've moved the feature from Mondays to Tuesdays. For no other reason, it's because we have a ton of content posted on Mondays during this time of the year and didn't want the most popular feature — disclaimer: we don't have site analytics to back … Continue Reading ››

We strive to spread the love between towns with the Tweets of the Week.

We really do.

But it seems like someone from Pea Ridge nails an awesome tweet more weeks than not. That's the case again this week thanks to a gem by Pea Ridge boys basketball coach Trent Loyd, who also had our first "Tweet of the Week" when we began this feature 10 weeks ago.

This time, Loyd arguably posted the Tweet of the Year. The timing and everything else was perfect as the entire Twitter-verse was enthralled when former Bentonville star Malik Monk scored 47 points for Kentucky … Continue Reading ››

He didn't come home with a state championship, but Pea Ridge quarterback Jakota Sainsbury earned — perhaps — an award almost as distinguished when he became the first player to repeat Tweet of the Week honors.

Less than 48 hours after Sainsbury and the Blackhawks lost 54-37 to Warren in the Class 4A state championship, the junior took to Twitter with this masterpiece that showed he still kept his sense of humor despite the defeat.

jakota-sainsbury-totw There was plenty for everyone to tweet about over the past week, but let's take a … Continue Reading ››

With the state football playoffs wrapping up and winter sports like hoops heating up, there was plenty to tweet about in Northwest Arkansas over the past week.

A high volume of happenings led to a high volume of great tweets, making it more difficult than usual to choose the ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week.

But we were impressed by the sportsmanship shown by Shiloh Christian football coach Jeff Conaway in his tweet to Pea Ridge offensive coordinator Crosby Tuck, a Shiloh Christian alum. This was tweeted after the Saints' season ended with a 30-24 loss at Pea Ridge, which will take on … Continue Reading ››

Congratulations to Graham Thomas, who went wire-to-wire to win our ARPreps.com Football Pick'Em Poll Contest this season. Graham, our writer with the Siloam Springs Herald-Leader, was pushed late by Paul Boyd, our man on the Rogers High and Rogers Heritage beats. But Graham pulled away for an impressive victory! As for the bottom of the standings, Mike Capshaw and Scottie Bordelon were in a heated battle for the cellar down to the last game. Congrats to Scottie for avoiding the dreaded last place spot, barely edging Mike :) !!!
