FAYETTEVILLE - TheÂ Razorbacks so needÂ Keon Hatcher in top receiver form that Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema demoted him during preseason drills.Â
The junior from Owasso, Okla., is Arkansasâ€™ leading returningÂ wide receiver from 2013 catching 27 passes for 346 yards and two touchdowns and running 11Â flanker reversesÂ for 140 yards.Â No single Razorbacks wide receiver combines all that Hatcher sports in size (6-2, 210), speed, stats and experience.
DespiteÂ Hatcherâ€™s deeds, the Hogs wallowed 3-9 last year, consecutively losing their last nine including all eight Southeastern Conference games.
BRYANT â€“ After losing a ton of seniors this past season, the Bryant Lady Hornets went with a very young team last year and finished with a 6-6 7A/6A South Conference record and a first-round 7A State playoff loss. But, those youngsters have grown and added muscle over the past summer and look to contend.
