FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas senior kicker Connor Limpert has been named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week after his performance against Colorado State.
It is his first conference weekly honor as a Razorback and the program’s first special teams award since De’Vion Warren on Oct. 28, 2017.
The 2018 Lou Groza Award semifinalist went 2-for-2 in field goal attempts against the Rams, hitting tries from 54 and 22 yards, while also going 7-for-7 in extra point attempts. His 54-yard field goal in the first quarter was one yard shy of a career long and tied for the ninth-longest in school history.
He sits at eighth in career field goals made at Arkansas with 32, needing five to tie Alex Tejada’s career mark of 37 (54 attempts) from 2007-10. Limpert’s next attempt will put him at 40 over his career, matching the 10th-most field goal attempts at Arkansas with Chris Balseiro from 2002-05.
Limpert and the Razorbacks (2-1) are home again this weekend to take on San Jose State on Saturday, Sept. 21, at 6:30 p.m., at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Single-game tickets remain for both contests can be purchased by calling the Razorback Ticket Center at 479.575.5151 or by visiting ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
