Bentonville West, a team some wrote off this season because it has no seniors on its roster, is 2-1 in 7A-West play after a 42-40 win against Springdale High on Friday.
Sophomore quarterback Will Jarrett is the ARPreps.com Athlete of the Week after completing 21 of 29 passes for 332 yards and four touchdowns and also rushing for a touchdown in the first-year program’s second victory. The Wolverines’ only other touchdown was 99-yard interception return by junior Jason Gloeckler.
A close second for Athlete of the Week honors was Prairie Grove’s Zeke Laird, who was 12-of-17 passing for 270 yards and a school-record six touchdowns. The senior also had a 54-yard rushing touchdown in the Tigers’ 45-15 dismantling of previously unbeaten Shiloh Christian.
