SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Dorial Green-Beckham knows Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville better than most high school players. The senior from Hillcrest in Springfield has visited the University of Arkansas campus and stadium several times, but never as a competitor.
On Thursday night, the Hillcrest Hornets play in a college football stadium for the second consecutive week, matching up against Heritage High School (Rogers, Ark.) in the Hootens High School classic. The Hornets opened the season with a 48-26 win against the Seneca Indians on the campus of Missouri Southern State University in Joplin.
The game is one of three high school football games at Razorback Stadium on Thursday night. After Hillcrest and Heritage play, Lebanon will play Har-Ber (Springdale, Ark.). The first game of the triple header starts at 3:30 and matches Shiloh Christian against Heber Springs, both from Arkansas.
The University of Arkansas is one of many possible suitors for the receiver, whom many consider to be the country's best high school senior athlete.
