The presentation of the prestigious Rotary Cup to the outstanding De Queen Leopards senior athlete has been an annual tradition of the De Queen Rotary Club since 1936.

Tight end, defensive end, and team co-captain Malik Beasley was presented the 2018 award at Monday’s noon meeting of the club.

Beasley was named to the 2018 Class 5A All-State team. As a junior, he was named to the 5A-South All-Conference first team. This past season, Beasley had 11 receptions for 177 yards. Defensively, Beasley was credited with 64 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, two quarterback sacks, two pass deflections, and a forced fumble.

Beasley is also a stand-out on the De Queen track team. As a junior, he won the Class 5A State track meet in the discus with a throw of 146’ 3” to earn all-state honors. He placed ninth in the discus at the Meet of Champs.

Beasley also excels in the classroom with a grade point average of 3.36. He’s a member of the National Honor Society, and participates in his church youth group. After graduation, Beasley plans to attend college, major in Kinesiology, and ultimately become a teacher and coach.

The Rotary Cup award is based on four criteria: involvement in other sports and school activities; character and leadership; scholastic achievement; and performance on the football field.

Rotarian Jay Bunyard, “The Voice of the Leopards” for the past 32 seasons, presented the award at Monday’s noon meeting of the Rotary Club.

Arkansas High Defeats De Queen in Texarkana 42-9

“The Arkansas High Razorbacks had two “Pick Sixes” for scores and took advantage of big plays on offense to race to a 42-3 halftime lead and cruise to a 42-9 victory over De Queen in Texarkana Friday night in action heard live on the Leopard Network – 102.1 The Good Path.

Texarkana scored two defensive touchdowns in the first half on interception returns covering 45 and 37 yards. Offensively, the Razorbacks scored on pass plays covering 57, 15, and 43 yards. The Hogs also scored on a 78 yard run from scrimmage.

The Leopards had a few bright spots. Quinshawn Bennett tackled the Arkansas High punter at the seven yard line early in the game. The Leopards couldn’t punch it in for a touchdown. However, Edward Garcia nailed a 28 yard field goal to pull De Queen to within 7-3. The Leopards then recovered the ensuing onside kick at the Arkansas High 44 yard line. But De Queen couldn’t take advantage, and Arkansas High reeled off 35 unanswered points.

With the Sportsmanship Rule invoked and the clock running continuously in the second half, De Queen had some moments. Juan Cervantes recovered a Hog fumble, and the Leopards drove 40 yards in eight plays with the score coming on a four yard run by Alexis Luna to make the final score 42-9 in favor of Arkansas High.

Edward Garcia was our McDonalds Player of the Game. Besides the 28 yard field goal to account for De Queen’s first half score against the Arkansas High starters, Edward was a perfect 17 of 17 kicking extra points this season.

Luna was the leading rusher with 49 yards on nine carries. Defensively, Colby Cowley led the tackle charts with six. Jorge Soto had a fumble recovery and Mack Carver picked off an Arkansas High pass.

The Leopards finish the season with a 1-9 record, despite leading at some point in seven of the ten games.”
