For the second straight year the Fayetteville football team is receiving a national honor. At half time of the boy’s game against Har-Ber Tuesday night they were presented with the National Guard National Ranking Trophy. Only 50 teams out of 16,000 in the entire country receive this award.

“It’s a big honor for us knowing that we put in all the hard work from June until the end of December,” said Arkansas quarterback commit Austin Allen. “It's been a fun ride and I'm glad to be a part of it.”

Fayetteville was ranked 143rd overall in the country after being ranked 116th last year. Add it to the trophy case for this senior class. They go out as the most decorated in school history.

“After winning the state championship game and getting that trophy, being honored by Max Preps with another trophy makes our team and or organization feel really good about ourselves,” said Arkansas safety commit Alex Brignoni. “Hopefully we can come back with energy and excitement for next year.”
