Touchdown Kurt

In just two games, Harding Academy wideout Kurt Adams (6-5, 170, 4.6) has found the end zone 12 times with a pair of six-touchdown performances.

Arkansas and Vanderbilt combined to score seven touchdowns in Saturday night's college football game.

That's only one more than Harding Academy star wideout Kurt Adams (6-5, 170, 4.6) - who was one of nearly 50 Razorback recruits on hand for the game - scored by himself on Friday night in a 46-13 pummeling of Clarendon.

Adams, who caught 11 passes for 230 yards in the win, had touchdown catches of 49, 47, 13, 6, and 4 and also picked off a pass and returned it 35 yards to the house for a score.

Of course, he scored six the week before with touchdown catches of 35, 34, 9 and 69 as well as a 36-yard run for a score and an 88-yard kickoff return to paydirt in a 39-27 win over Little Rock Christian.

"It's pretty exciting," Adams said. " I never thought I would score six touchdowns in a game once, much less twice in two weeks. But our coach gave me the opportunity and I took advantage of it."

Adams, who had 90 catches for over 1,600 yards and 20 touchdowns last season, has actually scored all but one of his team's 13 touchdowns this season.

He had 10 catches for 224 yards in the opener meaning he has 21 catches for 454 yards and 9 of his 12 touchdowns have come through the air.

"Coach is really coming to me a lot and I am just trying to make the most of what I can," Adams said. "The important thing is that we are winning."

Ironically being on hand for Saturday night's game gave Adams a chance to see two of the schools that are showing interest in him in Arkansas and Vanderbilt.

"There's Arkansas that I really like and I am also getting letters and calls from LSU and Notre Dame and Vanderbilt," Adams said. "It's kind of nice to see both schools and see what they are all about."

Adams, whose team finished 11-2 last season and was knocked out of the state playoffs in a 58-51 loss to Jessieville, will try to help his team avenge it's only regular season last season when it plays Palenstine-Wheatley on Friday night.

Palenstine-Wheatley downed Harding Academy 47-44 last season despite a trio of touchdown catches by Adams and a 90-yard interception return for a score.

"We owe them one," Adams said. "We're going to be ready to play."
