LRFC hosts 7th annual Showcase of the South

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Little Rock Futbol Club (LRFC) is pleased to host the 7th Annual Showcase of the South.

This year's event for U15-U19 soccer teams will be played over two weekends. The girls will play this weekend, January 19-20 and the boys will compete January 26-27 at Burns Park. The Showcase of the South provides club teams an exhibition style environment in which college coaches from all over the country can view future college bound players.

"We are pleased with the growth and success of the showcase over the years," said Allen Finney, LRFC Executive Director. "It started as a way to help the players in our club take their game to the next level, but has grown in such a way that we are able to offer that same opportunity to other clubs in our state and region. We even broke the event into two weekends last year so that we could accommodate more and not have to turn away teams."

Today's Box Office: The Last Stand: How Arnold got his groove back

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV Film Critic Jonathan Nettles review The Last Stand.

There was a time when Arnold Schwarzenegger was the king of action film, he ruled in an era of bloody, one-man versus everyone, never run out of bullets, always hit the target, take 'em head on kind of movie. He took a few years off to rule the state of California but now, as he promised, he's back.

The Last Stand has the kind of thin plot that works really well for an action movie; the head of a Mexican Drug Cartel escapes from federal prison and is making a run for the border. His way across is through a small Arizona town where Arnold Schwarzenegger happens to be the sheriff. Bad guy wants through, Arnold wants to stop him. It is that simple. There are no plot twists or anything that you don't see coming.
