SPRINGDALE -- There are athletes who can jump, and then there is Micah Seawood.
The Springdale Har-Ber rising senior is not getting the recruiting attention he deserves, said Wildcats coach Chris Wood. After Saturday's eye-popping performance in the Southwest Elite 7on7 tournament at Shiloh Christian, that oversight is likely to change.
"He's the best receiver in the state, and he's not getting the respect he deserves," Wood said as his team collected championship hardware on the other side of the field after winning the tournament championship. "If you watched him today, how he high-points the ball, his route-running, the way he out-jumps people. He's one of the best in the state, and nobody is talking about him."

One of my favorite work weekends of the summer arrives Friday and Saturday with the annual Southwest Elite Classic 7-on-7.
It's a good time to check out the flavor of local high school teams. Usually, a few Razorback prospects are on hand at fields at Shiloh Christian, Springdale and Fayetteville high schools.
While it may not be 11-on-11 football, it serves a purpose, per Shiloh Christian head coach Jeff Conaway.
