Three local student athletes on FB watch lists

Farm Bureau Insurance has announced the watch lists for the 2017 Farm Bureau Insurance Awards.

Each year the awards honor Arkansas’ top high school offensive and defensive player and coach of the year for each classification.

The veteran staff at Hooten’s Arkansas Football selects three finalists for each category, and those 45 finalists and their families are invited to attend the Farm Bureau Insurance Awards on Dec. 11.

“This list of players includes some of the best student-athletes in our state,“ David L. Moore, senior vice president and state manager for Southern Farm Bureau Casualty Insurance Company, said. “Farm Bureau Insurance wishes each of them continued success the rest of the season. Farm Bureau Insurance is proud to honor excellence as the title sponsor of this outstanding event.”

The 2017 watch list includes Forrest City senior running back Deviunta Foster, Marianna quarterback Daylon King, Palestine-Wheatley running back Chris Jordan and former Forrest City coach and current McCrory head football coach Chris Kennon.
