Skipper Talks Postseason Honors, Offseason Workouts

FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas offensive lineman Dan Skipper spent time with RazorVision to recap his true freshman season.

Skipper spoke with Chuck Barrett, and the two talked about spending holidays at home and the plan for offseason workouts. Skipper also touched on receiving postseason honors, including Freshman All-American and the team’s co-Offensive Newcomer of the Year.

Skipper started the final eight games of the season at guard and also recorded a single-season school-record three blocked field goals. He leads the SEC and is tied for second in the NCAA in blocked kicks. The Arvada, Colo., native blocked 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. In his first start, vs. No. 10 Texas A&M, he earned a grade of 80 percent while playing all 70 snaps. At Ole Miss, he recorded a team-high eight knockdown blocks.
