ARPreps.com’s Tweets of the Week: Dec. 12-18

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 and hit the game-winning 3-pointer in a 103-100 victory over North Carolina.

It was the most points a Kentucky freshman has scored and also the most by any player under one-and-done puppeteer coach John Calipari.

Loyd “pwned,” “trolled,” was “savage” and “dropped the mic” with the below tweet. About the only thing that would have made it better is if he had tagged North Carolina coach Roy Williams’ Twitter account, too:

It’s difficult to follow-up that tweet, but there were a few more worth noting from the past week like this one from Fayetteville’s Lauren Holmes:

Someone else poking fun at themselves was Gravette football coach Bill Harrelson after his daughter’s college graduation:

Prairie Grove super-athlete Isaac Disney probably felt a little greedy after gobbling up so many awards from the NWA Touchdown Club, but he showed humbleness in accepting:

Pea Ridge golfer Chandler Tidwell stated the obvious after the way the Blackhawks’ basketball team has stormed into the season behind the play of Joey Hall and Matt Thomas:

Pea Ridge’s Hayden Holtgrewe has figured out how to win the award for the best “HBD” tweet by including a childhood picture:

Because the holidays are a time of giving, we loved this one from Rogers girls basketball coach Preston Early:

Staying in the spirit of giving, Shiloh Christian sent “teams” to East Asia, the Domincan Republic and Haiti, where they installed solar lights in 47 homes. Here are a few shots from quarterback Connor Reece and defensive back Braden Mueller:

Here’s our obligatory tweet by Pea Ridge quarterback Jakota Sainsbury. We actually are surprised no Blackhawks QB has ever passed for more than 2,000 yards, but this was a historic season. Pretty cool feat considering there also were two 1,000-plus yard rushers, though:

Apparently, Springdale Har-Ber High basketballer Annabel Weber enjoys a certain TV show:

Another Har-Ber High athelete, star linebacker Oliver Nasaili, enjoyed this recruiting tweet from BYU, which has offered him a scholarship. We only hope the school spells his name correctly on the actual offer:

Here are a few of the other recruiting-related tweets. As always, please let us know if we missed any:

One thought on “ARPreps.com’s Tweets of the Week: Dec. 12-18”

  1. I think Monk going to Kentucky and Allen to Florida are traitors to their home state. They will only be there one year, then go to the NBA. They are what Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan called rent a player, referring to Duke.
