Schueck honored prior to Tennessee game

FAYETTEVILLE – Razorback supporter Tom Schueck will participate in the "A" Walk of Honor on Saturday prior to Arkansas’ football game against Tennessee at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. "We are pleased to honor Tom Schueck, a longtime supporter and a great friend to the Razorback program, on the field before the game on Saturday," Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. "Tom has been instrumental in supporting our program in various ways including recently by making a gift to our football center. His generosity has made a significant impact on our program including encouraging others in Central Arkansas and throughout the state to become involved in providing Razorback student-athletes with the resources to succeed in the Southeastern Conference and nationally." Schueck, the founder of a number of heavy construction companies including Schueck Steel, is a Broyles Matthews platinum member of the Razorback Foundation. A long-time supporter of the Razorback program, Schueck made a gift to help fund the completion of the new football center. He has also worked with the Razorback Foundation to provide private aircraft transportation for Razorback coaches during off-campus recruiting periods. Schueck’s daughter Jennifer and son Patrick are both graduates of the University of Arkansas and will join him for the pre-game ceremony. "Running through the A" is one of the Razorbacks’ most storied football traditions. While "Running through the A" is a tradition reserved only for members of the Razorback football team, Razorback Athletics created a program to honor those individuals or groups who have played a significant role in the support of Razorback Athletics. Honorees are invited to participate in this unique pre-game experience and are recognized on the video board and over the public address system as they walk through the "A" formed by the Razorback Marching Band. After completing the walk, honorees help complete the "A" before welcoming Coach Bobby Petrino and the Arkansas Razorback football team on the field just prior to kickoff. Honorees will also be inducted into the "A" Walk of Honor Hall of Fame. Previous honorees have included members of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, legendary Arkansas coach and athletic director Frank Broyles, the Willard and Pat Walker family, Jim Lindsey, Bob and Marilyn Bogle, the Jennings Osborne family and the Razorback Seat Value Plan (R.S.V.P.).
