FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Junior track athlete Matt Gunn earned one of the NCAA’s highest honors when he was selected as this year’s Walter Byers Postgraduate Scholarship recipient, as announced by the NCAA office. The prestigious scholarship is given to one of the nation’s top male and female student-athletes, based on academics, leadership and athletic achievements. Gunn will be awarded with a renewable $21,500 scholarship to the graduate school of his choice and he is the first UA athlete to be given the scholarship.
“It couldn’t go to a more deserving kid,” Arkansas head coach John McDonnell said. “He’s a very hard worker and has improved tremendously while he’s been at Arkansas. Everyone on the team likes him and his academics speak for themselves.”
