FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. –Razorback supporters Bryan and Brandon Adams will participate in the “A” Walk of Honor on Saturday prior to Arkansas’ football game against Troy at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
“Bryan and Brandon Adams are tremendous supporters of the Razorback program,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. “I am pleased that they believe in our program and have made substantial commitments in both annual giving and support for the football center. It is exciting to see a new generation of fans and donors answering the call and stepping up to help Razorback student-athletes achieve their dreams. Thanks to their generosity and the support of all Razorback Foundation members, our more than 460 student-athletes have the opportunity to compete and succeed in the Southeastern Conference and nationally.”
Bryan and Brandon Adams are Broyles-Matthews Platinum members of the Razorback Foundation. In addition to their financial support of the football center, they have worked through the Razorback Foundation to provide private aircraft transportation for Razorback coaches during off-campus recruiting periods.
“Running through the A” is one of the Razorbacks’ most storied football traditions. While “Running through the A” is a tradition reserved only for members of the Razorback football team, Razorback Athletics created a program to honor those individuals or groups who have played a significant role in the support of Razorback Athletics.
Honorees are invited to participate in this unique pre-game experience and are recognized on the video board and over the public address system as they walk through the “A” formed by the Razorback Marching Band. After completing the walk, honorees help complete the “A” before welcoming Coach Bobby Petrino and the Arkansas Razorback football team on the field just prior to kickoff. Honorees will also be inducted into the “A” Walk of Honor Hall of Fame.
Previous honorees have included members of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, legendary Arkansas coach and athletic director Frank Broyles, the Willard and Pat Walker family, Jim Lindsey, the Jennings Osborne family and the Razorback Seat Value Plan (R.S.V.P.).
