Tweets of the Week 1.31.17

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 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:

The next one is a little recruiting related. It came from Fayetteville receiver Cody Gray and was in response to teammate Brennon Lewis, who had chosen to continue his career at the University of Memphis.

Gray is the one running with the ball.

Lewis is the one on the ground.

Pea Ridge baseball/football player Garrett King may be the first to make our Tweets of the Week without tweeting an actual word. The picture is a recreation of the movie “Field of Dreams” and includes images of recently departed Major League Baseball players Oscar Tavares, Yordano Ventura and Jose Fernandez:

Shiloh Christian senior Ben Moore had a nice tweet to classmate Lorenzo Lopez. The duo actually are fairly decent dancers:

Another great tweet with a picture came from Farmington freshman Madisyn Pense. If only we all had a picture of ourselves to post when our mood actually matched Madisyn’s on this day:

Rogers High super jumper Jake Benninghoff used a photo to prove how strong his performance was during a track meet at the University of Kansas over the weekend:

Here’s an interesting shot from Rogers Heritage coach Tony Travis with former Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Ken Hatfield and recently promoted Hogs defensive coordinator Paul Rhoads:

Typically, tweets from our reporters are not eligible for Tweets of the Week (no matter how much they beg), but this one is a response from Huntsville basketball player Ty Bohannon to a tweet from our own Henry Apple.

For those who don’t know, Eagles girls coach Charles Berry has been coaching so long that he was one of the sport’s original founders along with James Naismith:
