Arkansas awards two in-state players scholarships

Bret Bielema

Last week Arkansas awarded two football players for their desires in contributing to the football program. Defensive end Jake Hall and fullback Tyler Colquitt were awarded scholarships by head coach Bret Bielema, with the scholarships taking effect starting in the second summer session at Arkansas.

“Jake and Tyler are both in state players who bring energy and passion to our team,” said Bielema. “They are two of the most versatile players in the state who were very well coached and who have shown great work ethic.  We think they are really going to develop into something special here.”

Neither player has had a chance to create an impact for the Razorbacks just yet, but awarding each with a scholarship helps instill trust and faith in the players from the coaching staff. Hard work in practice and a good attitude will always be respected by the coaching staff, and this appears to be some proof of that. Neither player is currently listed on the team’s official roster page, and what impact either ends up having will remain to be seen. But Arkansas is in need of players to change the trend within the program.

    Way to go Brett. A couple more talented players and you might win a game in the SEC this season. As your wife tweeted, #karma.
