The NWA Hawgs Club isn’t quite the Little Rock Touchdown Club, but it’s not too shabby itself either.
A number of big names and people who are very familiar to Razorback fans will be speaking this fall.
Sam Pittman led off things on Wednesday a day after he spoke to the Little Rock club.
There will not be a luncheon next Wednesday, but things will resume in September after Labor Day.
Here is a list of the confirmed speakers.
September 6-Raymond House
Back when Raymond House played, those phones were all the rage.
House was a defensive lineman that lived in the opponent’s backfield during his four-year career with the Razorbacks. He was a team captain his last year in 2002 and he has been a fixture on Arkansas pregame radio broadcasts for years since.
September 13-Fitz Hill
Hill was a Razorback assistant coach for the entire decade of the 1990s and eventually ended up the recruiting coordinator in addition to being the wide receivers coach and assistant head coach.
He parlayed that into the San Jose State job for four years before returning to Arkansas and was in administration for ten years at Arkansas Baptist College.
More recently, he has been known as the father of Justice Hill, a highly rated point guard who played at Arkansas, Murray State and LSU.
September 20-Kevin Trainor
In addition to his duties working for the University of Arkansas, Trainor is annually the moderator in the main media room during SEC Media Days every summer.
His brother Kendall was a fantastic kicker for the Razorbacks in the late 1980s.
September 27-Hunter Yurachek
Yurachek will always stick to his guns and he will surely have some valuable input at this point of the football season, as they will have just come off opening SEC play at LSU and will be about to make the trip to Arlington to face Texas A&M.
October 4-Houston Nutt
Nutt thrives when he gets to speak to a room like this. He’s going in the UA Hall of Honor this fall and now that he’s stepped down from his CBS analyst role, he’ll have more time to follow the Razorbacks.
