FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas is proud to announce former Razorback All-American and current Baltimore Raven Ken Hamlin as the A Club honorary captain for Saturday’s Vanderbilt-Arkansas football game.

The 19th-ranked Razorbacks welcome the Commodores into Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium for this season’s Homecoming game, which kicks off at 6 p.m. and will be broadcast on FSN.

The University of Arkansas Athletic Department and the Razorback Foundation A Club is presenting an honorary captain for each home game this season. Each honorary captain will be honored prior to the game on the field, recognized on the RazorVision and accompany the Razorback captains to midfield for the coin toss.

Hamlin played for the Razorbacks from 2000-02 and collected 381 career tackles, which ranks him second on the Razorbacks’ all-time list. In 2002, Hamlin recorded 159 tackles, the second-highest single-season total in school history, to lead the team for the second time in his career after posting a team-leading 104 in 2000. He also is tied for 11th on UA’s career interceptions list with nine after tying for the team lead in each of his three seasons.

Hamlin helped lead Arkansas to three straight bowl games during his career and an SEC Western Division title in 2002. He garnered first-team All-America accolades in 2002 as well as first-team All-SEC recognition in 2001 and 2002.

Hamlin is in his eighth year in the NFL. He was selected in the second round of the 2003 NFL draft by Seattle. After four seasons with the Seahawks, Hamlin moved on to play for former Razorback Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys from 2007-09.
