Razorbacks lose key kickoff specialist to 'other pursuits'
The touchback is often an overlooked weapon in the overall scheme of football but the Arkansas Razorbacks know the value of having a kicker capable of consistently booting the ball out of the end zone.
Or should I say they did…
After posted touchbacks on 70 of 77 kickoffs last season, junior kicker Lane Saling has decided not to play for Arkansas this season. According to Arkansas Online, Saling ‘plans other pursuits’ away from football.
With Saling no longer a member of the team, the Razorbacks list five specialist remaining on the official roster: senior punter Toby Baker, redshirt freshman punter Blake Johnson, sophomore kicker Cole Hedlund, senior kicker Adam McFain and freshman kicker Connor Limpert.
