Bumper Pool Leads Butkus Watch List

Arkansas linebacker Bumper Pool leads the Dick Butkus Award Watch List released on July 25.

The Butkus Award is presented annually to the nation’s best linebacker and is named for the former NFL wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer.

Pool was one of the best linebackers in the SEC last season and is projected to be a potential All-America selection in 2022.

Arkansas is featured in the 2022 College Football America Yearbook.

The College Football America 2022 Yearbook features more than 900 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.
