FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas is proud to announce former Razorback Fred Talley as the A Club honorary captain for the Arkansas-Troy football game on Sept. 17.
A native of Longview, Texas, Talley was a three-year letterwinner for the Razorbacks. He finished his career with 2,661 rushing yards, ranking him seventh on Arkansas’ all-time list, and 11 rushing touchdowns. Talley recorded 11 100-yard rushing games during his career, which ranks in a tie for fifth in program history. Talley’s best game as a Razorback came against Auburn in 2002 when he rushed for 241 yards, the third-highest single-game total in school history. Talley also earned the Crip Hall Award for the most outstanding performance by a senior in Arkansas’ 48-28 homecoming win over Ole Miss during the 2002 season.
Talley was twice named All-Southeastern Conference, earning second-team honors in 2001 and first-team accolades in 2002. Talley helped the Razorbacks to the SEC Western Division title in 2002 and an appearance in the Cotton Bowl. Following his career at UA, Talley signed a free agent contract with the Atlanta Falcons in 2003. He also played professionally with the Edmonton Eskimos and Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
The A Club honorary captain is recognized before each home game for their outstanding accomplishments on the field during their Razorback career. Each captain will be available for a brief autograph session at the AT&T Fan Zone at The Gardens prior to each game. Before kickoff, they will be recognized and will accompany the captains to midfield for the coin toss.
