Hatcher responding to challenge

August 29, 2014

FAYETTEVILLE - The  Razorbacks so need Keon Hatcher in top receiver form that Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema demoted him during preseason drills. 

The junior from Owasso, Okla., is Arkansas’ leading returning wide receiver from 2013 catching 27 passes for 346 yards and two touchdowns and running 11 flanker reverses for 140 yards. No single Razorbacks wide receiver combines all that Hatcher sports in size (6-2, 210), speed, stats and experience.

Despite Hatcher’s deeds, the Hogs wallowed 3-9 last year, consecutively losing their last nine including all eight Southeastern Conference games.

The board's director, Brenda Germann, says that yoga teacher-training schools in Arkansas should've been licensed sooner. But she says she had little knowledge of their existence until recently when a national group asked each state about licensing for the facilities.
