BENTON â€“ After a bit of shellshock to start the game, the Benton Panthers, after giving up a game-opening kickoff return by the Mills Comets, responded with 49 straight points to take down the Comets 49-14 in a benefit at Panthers Stadium in Benton.
â€śWe were dead starting the game,â€ť Benton Coach Scott Neathery said. â€śWe started out slow and they ran the kickoff back. I felt we werenâ€™t ready to play the game. I donâ€™t know if it was shock or what it was, but we got back in the ballgame and I feel like we played well.â€ť
FAYETTEVILLE - TheÂ Razorbacks so needÂ Keon Hatcher in top receiver form that Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema demoted him during preseason drills.Â
The junior from Owasso, Okla., is Arkansasâ€™ leading returningÂ wide receiver from 2013 catching 27 passes for 346 yards and two touchdowns and running 11Â flanker reversesÂ for 140 yards.Â No single Razorbacks wide receiver combines all that Hatcher sports in size (6-2, 210), speed, stats and experience.
DespiteÂ Hatcherâ€™s deeds, the Hogs wallowed 3-9 last year, consecutively losing their last nine including all eight Southeastern Conference games.
LITTLE ROCK â€” An Arkansas state board says schools that train yoga teachers will soon need to attain a license.
The Arkansas Board of Private Career Education oversees private, postsecondary career schools for fields, such as real estate, bail bonds and tattoo piercing.
The board's director, Brenda Germann, says that yoga teacher-training schools in Arkansas should've been licensed sooner. But she says she had little knowledge of their existence until recently when a national group asked each state about licensing for the facilities.
