The Farm Bureau Awards honor Arkansas' top offensive player, defensive player and coach of the year for each classification. The veteran staff at Hooten's Arkansas Football selects three finalists for each category, and those 45 finalists and their families are invited to attend the Farm Bureau Awards Dec. 10 in North Little Rock.
Newport’s explosive junior threat Kristen Crite and Coach Jeromy Poole have been placed on this year’s list.

He also has 26 tackles, 1 pass broken up and 2 interceptions.
Poole currently has the Hounds sitting at 5-3 overall with their three losses coming by a combined 12 points.
