▶️ Jalen Catalon: If there's a college football honor, the redshirt sophomore is in the running. He's a Preseason All-SEC pick, on the shortlist for the Jim Thorpe Award, and now he's under consideration for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. He headlines this Razorback defense and will help a secondary that ranked 9th in the SEC with 259.6 passing yards given up per game.

▶️ Grant Morgan: The redshirt senior is in the same boat, racking up preseason awards. He's also a Preseason All-SEC pick, and on watch lists for the Bednarik Award and the Butkus Award. Fun fact: Morgan finished last season with more games where he had double-digit sacks (6) than he didn't (3) which helped him lead the SEC with 12.3 tackles per game.

Razorback football is back on the field with a home opener against Rice on Saturday, September 4th.
