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.

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 :) !!!
