We're taking a little different slant on the ARPreps.com Tweets of the Week this time around.
Instead of singling out a "Tweet of the Week," we're giving the award for "Tweets of the Week" to Fayetteville quarterback Taylor Powell, who thankfully shared his wild roller coaster ride of a week with the rest of the world via Twitter.
Powell's week began with something expected by many — and ended with something unexpected.
It started with Powell winning the Landers Award, which annually is given to the top high school player in the state. Based on Powell's accomplishments (two-time state champ and 7A record … 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 strive to spread the love between towns with the Tweets of the Week.

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.

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 ››
