Top-ranked John Curtis Christian and junior RB Tevin Horton host No. 32 Dunham tonight in the first…
Horton Visits Arkansas
"It's always great to get up there to Arkansas," said Tevin Horton, who camped with the Hawgs over the summer. "They treated me nice, like I was already one of the Razorbacks. They treated me with respect and treated me real good. "The outcome of the game was good. Arkansas plays fast, physical and high-speed. They finish strong and start strong. In the first half, South Carolina looked like they were going to put up a fight, but Arkansas put it all on the line, which is what I like to see from a team." Horton enjoyed the stadium atmosphere. "The fans were rowdy and on the edge of their seats the whole time," he said. "They were standing up and it was hectic. Every time Arkansas gets a first down, they have this hog call that really gets the fans pumped up. It was a cool experience. "I saw Coach (Tim) Horton and he was happy to see me. He talked with me and my parents about the season. My parents really liked it at Arkansas. They liked the possibility of how I could fit in there and possibly go there for college." Horton has two former teammates at Arkansas. "I saw Luke Charpentier during the Hog Walk but didn't get to talk with him," he said. "I did talk to Tyler Gilbert, who plays defensive end for Arkansas. He told me what's it like to live there." Horton and his teammates at John Curtis are undefeated and seeded No. 1 in the Class 2A playoffs, which begin this week. The Patriots will welcome No. 32 Dunham (4-6), a Baton Rouge private school, to the metro New Orleans area in a first round contest. A couple of weeks ago, John Curtis Head coach J.T. Curtis, Jr. won his 500th career game as head coach of the River Ridge school. "It was great being a part of Coach J.T.'s 500th win." said Horton. "Everybody around the state seemed to notice. It was all over the TV and Internet."
