FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Razorback football team worked through a 90-minute practice Wednesday afternoon inside Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion. Interim head coach Reggie Herring has been happy with the quality of the workouts as the players have responded to what the coaching staff has asked of them.
“(The players’) focus has been tremendous throughout this month,” Herring said. “The work has been fresh, intense and really focused, so I’m really proud of the kids.”
Herring is also proud of the work the players have done off the field in the classroom keeping them eligible to participate in the Cotton Bowl Classic against Missouri.
“Academically, I think it’s safe to say the players have done a great job of taking care of their work,” Herring said. “That’s as big an announcement you can make about the tremendous support group, academic staff and the players. We’ll be full strength on Jan. 1.”
The Razorbacks will return to practice Thursday for their final workout before heading home for the holidays and reconvening in Dallas to continue preparations for the Missouri Tigers. Log on to www.hogwired.com for continued coverage of Arkansas football.
