In 2005, Mitchell Stewart Mustain led Springdale High School to a perfect 14-0 record and won the Arkansas Class 5A state title, defeating three nationally ranked opponents in the process. In a magical senior campaign, Mustain threw for nearly 4,000 yards and set a state single season record with 47 touchdowns garnering him consensus national Player of the Year honors and an inventory of hardware similar in size to that of a Home Depot.
The handsome prodigy was ordained “Football’s Future” by USA Today, and Razorback fans across the Natural State had visions of BCS crystal balls dancing in their heads when they realized that the future of the game that had not been so rewarding to them as of late, was going to be cultivated in their own back yard, as Mustain chose to attend nearby Arkansas, spurning the pursuits made by every national power.
At Arkansas, Mustain saw action immediately. As a true freshman, he replaced starter Robert Johnson in the late stages of an eventual 50-14 loss to the USC Trojans and instantly guided the Razorbacks on an impressive 80-yard touchdown drive, sending the remaining Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium crowd into frenzy and Robert Johnson to a totally different position on the depth chart (WR).

A Breakdown of the Bowl Game Gift Packages
This may be the one time college football players will be happy to take a seat.
This year, alongside the high-end electronics, jewelry and mountain bikes in the gift suites that have become a staple at college football postseason festivities, there will be a home-theater recliner that users can plug their electronics into, as well.
SportsBusiness Journal’s eighth annual analysis of the gift packages provided to bowl game participants by the committees that host the games reveals that half of those organizations will stage a gift suite or shopping spree in the coming weeks. Gift suites are set up as private events prior to the game in which game participants, and often bowl VIPs, are given an order form and allowed to select a gift, or gifts, up to a value that is predetermined by each bowl, not to exceed the NCAA limit.
The NCAA allows each bowl to award up to $550 worth of gifts to 125 participants per school. Schools can, and usually do, buy additional packages that they can distribute to participants beyond that 125 limit. In addition, participants can receive awards worth up to $400 from the school and up to $400 from the conference for postseason play, covering both conference title games and any bowl game.
Making its gift suite debut this year will be Southern Motion’s Viva, a powered home theater recliner that has two USB ports that can charge mobile devices. The Pontotoc, Miss.-based furniture manufacturer also
Southern Motion’s McLaren (top) and Viva chairs will debut in gift suites this year.
will offer the larger McLaren, which does not plug in but features a steel base and a reinforced frame capable of accommodating even the largest offensive lineman.
