Staying Unbeaten

Arkansas quarterback commits Rafe Peavey and Ty Storey as well as kicker Cole Hedlund were among recruits having big Friday nights as the Razorback coaches and at least one player got out to see some future Hogs.

The Rafe Peavey and Ty Storey Shows continued with near-perfect success again on Friday night as both kept their teams unblemished while accounting for five touchdowns each.

With Arkansas offensive coordinator Jim Chaney looking on at the Razorbacks' 2014 QB pledge, Peavey accounted for 442 yards total offense and five touchdowns while leading unbeaten Bolivar to a 41-6 win previously unbeaten Reed Springs.

Peavey was 16-of-18 passing for 269 yards and two touchdowns and also rushed 14 times for 173 yards and three more touchdowns on a night when the Liberators never punted due to the touchdowns and three fumbles.

Storey – Arkansas' 2015 signal caller commit – put on his show in front of current Razorback star freshman tailback Alex Collins.

He was 14-of-16 passing for 260 yards as Charleston (8-0, 5-0 in 3A-4 games) routed Lavaca 42-13.

That effort put him over 2,000 yards passing this season with 22 touchdowns.

"Ty didn't have a great game last week and some of that wasn't his fault," Charleston head coach Greg Kendrick told the Southwest Times Record. "But he was motivated to have a good game. I think he was about as good as you can be tonight."

Collins spent most of his time signing autographs during the contest.

"We were off this week and a friend from (Charleston) invited me to the game," Collins told the Southwest Times Record. "I came down here to see some Arkansas high school football and I'm having a good time."

Peavey and Bolivar scored three touchdowns in Liberators' first nine plays to jump out to a 21-6 lead.

"That's our mentality every game," Peavey told the Springfield News Leader. "That's the way we want to play football."

Peavey's only two incompletions were a tipped pass to start the second half and a drop on his final pass of the night.

Peavey, who will attend the South Carolina-Missouri game Saturday night with his team as part of a function, certainly understated how well his team has been playing.

"There are still plenty of things for us to work on and hopefully we'll get them fixed by next week," Peavey told the paper. "Other than that, I feel pretty good about where we're at."

The win moves Bolivar to 9-0 and meant the Liberators won an 11th straight Central Ozark Conference small division championship.

It also puts them into a first-round state playoff game against Warrensburg on Thursday night.

"There are a lot of people who can beat us, but we feel like we can beat a lot of people if we're playing well," Bolivar coach Lance Roweton said. "I really feel like we're on the uptick these last couple weeks. It's a fun team to coach."
