Arkansas receivers on Pony Express Watch List

FAYETTEVILLE – University of Arkansas wide receivers Joe Adams, Greg Childs and Jarius Wright make up one of 48 tandems on the Watch List for the inaugural Pony Express Award, it was announced Tuesday.

The award, the brainchild of SMU’s legendary Pony Express backfield of Craig James and Eric Dickerson, will look at two- and three-player tandems from across the nation and ultimately honor the combination whose work ethic, desire, on- and off-field leadership and playmaking ability best fuel their team.

In three seasons at Arkansas, Adams, Childs and Wright have combined for 324 receptions, 5,401 receiving yards and 41 receiving touchdowns. Each receiver ranks in the top 12 in Arkansas history in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in a career. They lead a group touted as one of the top wide receiver corps in the nation heading into the 2011 season.

The award will be voted on by a blue ribbon panel of experts that will form the award’s board of directors and be announced at the conclusion of the 2011 regular season.
