Elite 11 updates
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/MELISSA SUE GERRITS 12/13/13 - Bentonville's QB Kasey Ford looks to pass during their championship game against Cabot December 13, 2013 at War Memorial Stadium.
ARLINGTON, Texas Six Arkansans took part in the Elite 11 Regional Competition at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas today.
Bentonville sophomore Kasey Ford, 6-5, 237 pounds; Little Rock Central junior Cooper Westbrook, 6-3, 220; North Little Rock junior Heath Land, 6-0, 200; Pulaski Academy junior Will Hefley, 6-4, 205; Hoxie junior Cole Sears, 6-3, 205, and Wynne junior Ross Trail, 6-3, 210.
Trail was selected by Elite Coach Trent Dilfer as one of the top seven quarterbacks and participated in the two minute drill. He went 4 of 5 in the drill and was one of the more impressive signal callers in the drill.
Jarrett Stidham, a Texas Tech commitment, was the only quarterback selected to the national compettion but Dilfer said Trail is still very much in the running for a spot.
Dilfer focuses on the juniors, but said he's very aware of Bentonville quarterback Kasey Ford. He rinks he's one of the top sophomore quarterbacks in the nation.
