Fayetteville caper earns Tweet of Week

Anytime a player can get one over on their coach, it’s worth an extra laugh.

Fayetteville sophomore hoops standout Sasha Goforth showed that she and teammates Jasmine Franklin and Coriah Beck have brains to go along with basketball ability by posing for photos in order to steal a breather during a workout for coach Vic Rimmer.

Sure many athletes have cut through yards on distance runs through neighborhoods or done other nefarious things behind coaches’ backs to lighten their workout load, but this may be the first time technology was used so brilliantly to do so.

Pushing this tweet over the top of the others was that they made sure to include a picture of coach Rimmer, which surely helped their cause when he discovered the caper.

For those new to this feature, only high school athletes β€” and sometimes coaches, if/when they’re clever β€” are considered. We honor a tweet of the week while also highlighting a few others that caught our eye with fake awards.

Here’s the best of the rest, including one from unofficial Tweet King Jakota Sainsbury, the Pea Ridge quarterback who has posted more tweets of the week than anyone and continues to bring the heat.

Long may he reign.
