Devwah Whaley and his Arkansas Football teammates are another week closer to kickoff.
The Razorbacks closed out their second week of preseason camp with its first scrimmage of the season inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. It was also the first time the team had officials and live tackling as they tried to mimic a game-like setting as much as possible.
The scrimmage, which went approximately 112 plays, started with first and second down work before moving to red zone situations and ending with full drives down the field.
During the first drive, Whaley finished the job with an 11-yard touchdown run.
Whaley, a freshman from Beaumont, Texas, had several impressive runs on the day, including multiple rushes of at least 20 yards. He finished with just under 100 yards rushing and one touchdown.
“He showed some burst and turned some heads today,” said Head coach Bret Bielema on Whaley’s performance.
