FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.  – Following a runner-up finish at the 2014 Southeastern Conference Outdoor Championships, the Razorbacks earned several SEC post-season awards, as announced by the league on Tuesday.

Omar McLeod was named Freshman Runner of the Year, finishing as runner up in the 110-meter hurdles at the SEC Championships, his first collegiate outdoor championship meet. His personal-best 110-meter hurdles time of 13.50 ranks No. 2 all-time at Arkansas and makes him the eighth-fastest 110m hurdler in the NCAA and the No. 1 freshman 110m hurdler in the SEC. McLeod was also SEC Freshman Runner of the Year during indoor season.

Nathanael Franks earned Co-Scholar-Athlete of the Year, holding a 3.93 grade point average in his Masters of Accountancy program, having already obtained his MBA. He holds a Walton MBA Scholarship and is a Walton MBA Student Ambassador and Mentor. He earned his B.S. degree in physics and chemistry in three years, graduating Magna Cum Laude as a member of the Interdisciplinary Fulbright College Honors Program. Franks finished third in the decathlon at the 2014 SEC Outdoor Championships, helping the Razorbacks to a runner-up finish.

The All-SEC teams also were announced on Tuesday, with Arkansas earning nine spots. The All-SEC First Team consists of the event winner in each event at the SEC Outdoor Championships, while the All-SEC Second Team consists of the second and third-place finishers in each event. The SEC All-Freshman Team is comprised of the top freshman finisher in each event, excluding relays, at the SEC Outdoor Championships.
