FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Former two-time All-Southwest Conference selection and Arkansas alum Jerry Lamb will serve as the A Club Honorary Captain for Saturday’s game between the Razorbacks and Nicholls.
Lamb was a three-year letterman and captain on the 1964 national championship team. The end earned All-SWC recognition in 1963 and 1964 and was selected to play in the 1965 Hula Bowl.
A Houston native, Lamb led the Razorbacks in receiving in 1962 and 1963 and finished his career as the second-leading receiver in school history with 58 receptions for 938 yards and eight touchdowns. He still holds the school record for longest reception in a bowl game with his 68-yard grab against Ole Miss in the 1963 Sugar Bowl.
Lamb was elected to the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame in 2001. Former Razorback letterwinners elected Lamb into the University of Arkansas Sports Hall Of Honor in 2005. He was also named to the Arkansas 1960’s All-Decade team.
The A Club honorary captain is recognized before each home game for their outstanding accomplishments on the field during their Razorback career. Before kickoff, they will be recognized and will accompany the captains to midfield for the coin toss.
The Razorbacks will host Nicholls on Saturday, Sept. 6 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 3 p.m. and the game will be televised on the SEC Network alternate channel and WatchESPN.com.
Single-game tickets are on sale and can be purchased at ARKANSASRAZORBACKS.COM, at the Razorback Ticket Center (prior to gameday) or by calling 800-982-HOGS (4647).
