Springdale Har-Ber's Tylor Perry is a human highlight reel, but it was his game-winning layup in overtime that earned the sophomore point guard ARPreps.com Athlete of the Week honors. Perry drove the left side of the lane and put the shot off the glass with 2.7 seconds remaining to lift the Wildcats to a 67-65 win on Friday and sole possession of first place in the 7A-West Conference standings.

This week, we're taking a little different approach by giving fictitious (aka make believe) awards for each of the tweets that we highlight.

Of course, we're begin as we always do with the ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week, which also could have won the award for the "Best HBD tweet" if it hadn't been filled with so much irony. (Note for readers over 40: "HBD" stands for Happy Birthday)

Fayetteville's Blake Coulter sent the tweet to his sister, Kylee Coulter. The irony is in the sad fact that Kylee — a University of Nebraska-Omaha basketball signee — underwent knee surgery on Tuesday. Also, … Continue Reading ››
