2011 Farm Bureau Awards Finalists


NORTH LITTLE ROCK - All 45 finalists journeyed from across the state Monday night to attend the 2011 FARM BUREAU AWARDS at the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce  and nearby Argenta Community Theater.

The finalists and their guests enjoyed a banquet catered by MarketPlace Grill followed by a video extravaganza where 15 winners received player or coach of the year honors. THV2 and THV2.com broadcast the event live.

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 finalists are invited to attend the Farm Bureau Awards.

Van Buren’s Cole Plunkett received the Arkansas AIR Guard Scholar Athlete of the Year award.

Farm Bureau vice president-general manager Duff Wallace said, "Farm Bureau congratulates all of the finalists for this year's awards. They represent some of the best student-athletes in our state. Farm Bureau is proud to honor their excellence as the title sponsor of this outstanding event."

Farm Bureau Insurance has supported education and community involvement in Arkansas for more than 50 years.
