Bearcats’ Harper and Daugherty Announced as Farm Bureau Finalists

To add to an already dream season, two of the Bearcats own, have been announced as finalists for the 2014 Arkansas Farm Bureau Awards. Each year, Farm Bureau, with the help of Hooten’s Arkansas Football staffers, honor whom they believe to be the top offensive player, defensive player, and coach, from across the state. Hooten’s has the honor of picking three finalists for each category and class, from 2A-7A.
