Arkansas defensive back wins top weekly national honor

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (WMC) - In Arkansas, the Razorbacks have a full two weeks to continue celebrating their win against Ole Miss in Fayetteville. It’s sweeter for one Hog in particular.

Walk-on, redshirt, freshman defensive back Hudson Clark has been named the Jim Thorpe Award Player of the Week for his performance against the Rebels.

Clark had not two - but three interceptions in the game. The three picks tie him for the nation’s lead - but that’s not all.

Clark doesn’t have to worry about paying tuition anymore. Hogs head coach Sam Pittman announced Clark is now on scholarship.

Arkansas travels to Texas A&M on October 31.
