He’ll be trained by myself and Jermaine Petty-

A native of Inman, S.C., Petty came to the University of Arkansas from Butler County Community College in 1999. Jermaine Petty finished his Razorback career by posting the fourth-highest tackle total by a Razorback in a season with 140 stops during the 2001 campaign.  Of the 140 tackles, 13 were for loss. During his stellar 2001 season, Petty was named the Bronko Nagurski Player of the Week twice.  Petty had one interception, a memorable 88-yard pick returned for a touchdown to seal a 42-17 win over #17 Auburn.  He also had the final tackle to seal the Hogs win in the historic seven-overtime victory at Ole Miss.  His 2001 campaign earned him first-team Southeastern Conference and All-America honors. He also won the J. Frank Broyles Award as the Most Outstanding UA Athlete for the 2001-02 school year.  Following his Razorback career, Petty played in the NFL for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Green Bay Packers.
