Sheppard hopes for big bowl in ’09

Coming into the 2009 season, the Razorbacks returned several starters from last year.  On defense, especially, the Hogs are stacked with returning talent and perhaps the most recognized individual is Malcolm Sheppard.  One of the few seniors and a defensive leader for head coach Bobby Petrino, Sheppard does not shy away from the pressure and hopes he can carry over in the next phase of life after college. “It’s been good for me so far this year,” said Sheppard. “I’ve learned how to not only be vocal, but also to lead by example on the field when it comes to playing big SEC schools like Georgia and Florida and the guys respond to that really well.”
