FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Hayden Henry was a man on a mission on Saturday. He helped complete the mission with a dominant effort in Arkansas’ win over the 15th ranked Texas Longhorns. Henry earned national defensive player of the week honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
On Saturday, Henry recorded a career night for the Razorbacks at his will linebacker position. He had 15 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and led the Razorback defense in tackles during the Razorbacks’ 40-21 win which was a first in his Hog career.
The redshirt senior linebacker is the fourth Arkansas student-athlete to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004. Henry is the first since former Razorback quarterback Ryan Mallett (Sept. 19, 2010).
