FAYETTEVILLE, Ala. – “On the Air with Bret Bielema,” Coach Bielema’s weekly radio show presented by AT&T and West Rock Coffee Company, returns on Thursday night at 7 p.m. at the Catfish Hole.
This week’s show will feature junior fullback Kendrick Jackson and sophomore fullback/tight end Hayden Johnson as the Razorbacks prepare for Saturday’s game against No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Jackson, from Haynesville, Louisiana, has played in 29 games with six starts since arriving in Fayetteville. Last season he helped block for Rawleigh Williams III, who finished as the SEC regular-season rushing leader with 1,360 yards.
A native of Columbia, Missouri, Johnson has played in 17 of a possible 18 games since arriving to Fayetteville and started seven of those contests as a freshman last season. Johnson has caught three passes for 34 yards during his career and also helped block for Williams’ 1,000-yard rushing effort in 2016.
