LITTLE ROCK - East Poinsett County 4-year starting quarterback Preston Rains is the First Community Bank Scholar Athlete of the Week.
Rains (6-2, 225; 280-pound power clean) completed 57 percent of his passes last fall for 1,796 yards and this season led EPC to its first conference championship since 2014.

Bank representative David Daniel, Allen Williams, Jana Malone, Paul Hindman and Monica Lung surprised Rains after a recent EPC practice with the announcement. Earlier this season, First Community presented the award to standout students at Mountain Home, West Memphis, Batesville, Pocahontas, Vilonia, Rivercrest, Harding Academy (Searcy), Valley View and Cabot.
