College Coaches In Staggering Numbers
Fifteen different college coaches were in attendance for the first round of play. Colleges from around the nation were represented, and more schools are expected to make an appearance throughout the week.
Woo Pig Sooie Night
After the conclusion of the first round, players and staff visited the University of Arkansas football stadium for the second annual Woo Pig Sooie Night. Players were treated to a barbeque buffet and then had the opportunity to play football on the field of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The boys versus girls competition extended into the night’s football game with divided gender teams taking the field. Competition between the two teams was tough with the game ending in a 3-3 tie. The comradery will continue immediately following the second round during the skills challenge.
