(ARKANSASRAZORBACKS.COM) – Six Razorbacks have been named to the 2022 Coaches All-SEC Team, the most Arkansas selections in over a decade.
Center Ricky Stromberg, linebacker Drew Sanders and kickoff specialist Jake Bates earned first-team praise from the league’s coaches, while running back Raheim Sanders, linebacker Bumper Pool and defensive back Dwight McGlothern secured second-team honors.
The Razorbacks’ six All-SEC honorees are their most since 2011 when seven Arkansas student-athletes – defensive end Jake Bequette (1st), wide receiver Jarius Wright (1st), wide receiver/punt returner Joe Adams (1st), quarterback Tyler Wilson (1st), offensive lineman Alvin Bailey (2nd), punter Dylan Breeding (2nd) and linebacker Jerry Franklin (2nd) – were recognized by the league’s coaches.
This year’s three first-team selections are also the Hogs’ most since 2011.
Stromberg, who received the first-team nod at the center, has not allowed a sack all year while helping block for quarterback KJ Jefferson and an Arkansas offense that ranks second in the SEC and ninth nationally in rushing yards per game (223.4).
Behind his blocking, the Hogs have had a 100-yard rusher in 10 of their last 13 games dating back to the 2021 season, led by Raheim Sanders’ seven 100-yard rushing performances.
