Springdale High’s Layne Hutchins becomes our first back-to-back winner of the ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week (disclaimer: and it’s not just because we had lunch together.)

It’s also the first time we’ve had two tweets take the honor, but as readers will see below, both tweets together is what makes Hutchins extra lucky on St. Patrick’s Day.

Here’s the first …

And the second …

Springdale High quarterback Layne Hutchins is a regular in the Tweets of the Week feature.

But his recent tweet after a horrible haircut by teammate Isaiah Nichols is our ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week because it was funny and cost Hutchins any semblance of a decent do for the next few weeks. Here are the honorable mentions tweets featuring made-up awards: Best “Ohhh babbyy!” Tweet

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 ››

Thanks to last week's signing day, there are far fewer recruiting-related tweets to post here.

Of course, there were dozens — if not more — of tweets from signing ceremonies and because there were too many to count, we're going to skip posting them all here.

Otherwise, we wouldn't have space for other awesome tweets, like this one from Springdale Har-Ber's Zane King. It was posted shortly after the New England Patriots rallied from a 25-point, third quarter deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime in Super Bowl LI.

King's well-timed tweet was spot on, especially when considering how … Continue Reading ››

Also known as "National Signing Day," Wednesday marks the beginning of the week-long national signing period. That's crowded Twitter timelines more than usual with visits, offers and pledges for the past few weeks.

We'll get to all of those in a bit.

But first, the ARPreps.com Tweet of the Week comes from Prairie Grove junior softball player Ali Edgar. She's been a regular with her witty tweets, but this one was extra funny — especially because she's tweeting about a teacher named "Mileham." That may be Tigers baseball coach Chris Mileham, which makes the exchange even more comical:

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 ››

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 ››
