Pittman Recaps Season, Looks Toward Development

FAYETTEVILLE – Associate head coach, offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Sam Pittman took time to meet with RazorVision.

Coach Pittman discussed recruiting, true freshmen honors and development, first-team All-American center Travis Swanson and the work being done heading into the offseason with Chuck Barrett.

Three of Coach Pittman’s offensive linemen earned postseason honors, including Swanson and true freshmen guards Denver Kirkland and Dan Skipper. The offensive lineblocked as Alex Collins became the 10th true freshman in SEC history to rush for 1,000 yards and as Collins and Jonathan Williams became the second Razorback duo to each reach at least 900 rushing yards in one season. The offensive line also broke the single-season school record by only allowing 8.0 sacks. Arkansas leads the SEC and is tied for second in the NCAA with an average of 0.67 sacks allowed per game. The Razorbacks’ average of one sack allowed for every 37.63 pass attempts is the best in the conference and seventh in the nation.
