FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas football team continued its bowl-game preparations Tuesday night with a 75-minute session in the Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion. The Razorbacks dressed out in shells and went through a workout that focused on the kicking game and unit-specific drills.
“The players came out and worked hard today,” interim head coach Reggie Herring said. “We did some kicking and team work, polishing up on the game plan. These kids have really done a good job with what we’ve asked them to do.”
With a schedule that includes final exams and football practice, the players have responded well to the busy routine. Herring has been happy with the concentration of all the Razorbacks during the last several weeks.
“You know we’re closing in on (the end of) finals,” Herring said. “I’ve been really impressed the way they’ve been focused and working on their finals. That was our main goal, to get everybody to the bowl game, so we can put on a good show.”
As the Hogs get ready to take on Missouri at the Cotton Bowl Classic, Herring said the players’ attitudes have been key in Arkansas’ preparation.
“These players have been consistent all year,” Herring said. “They haven’t flinched dealing with adversity and I don’t see why they’d flinch now. These are some fine young man. These guys are great workers, and they’re great competitors and they have a lot of character.”
The Hogs will return to practice Wednesday morning. Log on to www.hogwired.com for continued coverage of Razorback football.
