Arkansas Football Countdown Day 50: Grady Ollison

50 Days until this place is full - USA TODAY Sports

We are halfway though with only 50 more days until kickoff!

We have reached halftime in terms of the Football Season Countdown. We have officially reached the peak of the countdown and it's all downhill from here.

Today, we highlight Malvern's Grady Ollison, the last of the offensive lineman featured on the countdown.

The sophomore stands at 6-foot-5, 276-pounds and played sparingly a season ago for the Hogs, seeing action in five games mostly as a member of the field goal unit.

Kicker Zach Hocker accumulated 32 points (14 PATs and six made field goals) in the five games Ollison played. Editor's note: WE SCORED 14 TOUCHDOWNS IN FIVE GAMES DURING ANY FIVE GAME STRETCH? I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE UNDER.

This season his role will be increased tremendously as he has been named the starting right tackle coming out of spring this summer. Ollison also spent a few downs as fullback during some of those games you turned off early. This will hopefully help him in the new run-based offense make gaping holes at the line of scrimmage for the backs to the right side.

Out of high school Ollison received interest from Kansas State, Ole Miss, Tulsa and was named to HawgSports.com's "Natural 21"

Ollison is on Twitter, and you can find him at @gollison_50.
