Tweets of the Week 2.7.17

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 the Arkansas Razorbacks had blown second half leads in such a similar fashion:

It was one of several great tweets about the Super Bowl.

Here’s one from Shiloh Christian receiver Blake Thomas, who has faked his share of defensive backs out of their shoes, just like Falcons receiver Taylor Gabriel did to Pats’ cornerback Malcolm Butler.

Pea Ridge basketball coach Trent Loyd summed up his thoughts with three points:

Also from Pea Ridge, this tweet by Jakota Sainsbury was right on the money when looking back at other championships in professional sports:

And one more from Pea Ridge offensive coordinator Crosby Tuck:

The funniest tweet of the week belongs to Elkins running back Colten Vaught. (Disclaimer, we love Frito pie, too, so we’re a little biased about this one.):

The best “HBD” tweet comes from Farmington’s Camryn Journagan for her ability to cram 10 photos of her with teammate Kaylee Brown into one post:

One of the better all-around tweets was by Shiloh Christian’s Lorenzo Lopez. I mean, wow. This photo certainly is worth more than 1,000 words.

Great angle for the photo, too, young man. You have an eye for photography:

On a lighter note, we love Springdale High’s idea for Spirit Week. Thanks to Layne Hutchins and Sarah Vogel for sharing a few photos:

Rogers High’s Jake Benninghoff is an amazing athlete and tweeted how he measures up with the rest of the country’s top jumpers:

As stated earlier, there weren’t many non-signing ceremony tweets to fill up our recruiting section that usually appears each week at the bottom of this feature. But we did find something along those lines, although we had a tweak are own rule about not using retweets here.

We would have posted something tweeted by Shiloh Christian sophomore Lia Enos herself, but she didn’t tweet about receiving a Division I scholarship offer, which is a huge deal.

That said, we had to settle for her retweet of her dad, Arkansas offensive coordinator Dan Enos, that was a reply to a highlight video of Enos posted by the Arkansas Banshees account.

It’s the first retweet we used here, but hey, we at least needed something recruiting related:
