Arkansas' football program is honoring its graduates with a special patch.
The Razorbacks who have already graduated will be wearing an "SEC Graduate" patch on their uniform this fall.
Here's the patch, via Arkansas' official website.
Arkansas AD Jeff Long said this about the patch:
“Our mission is to develop student-athletes to their fullest potential through intercollegiate athletics, including empowering them to attain the ultimate goal of graduation,” he told the school's website. “More and more, our student-athletes are achieving that goal even before their athletic eligibility has expired. In recognition of this extraordinary achievement, we have developed a patch to be worn on their respective jerseys by all those student-athletes who have earned their college degree. It is a great reminder that these talented young men and women have already achieved something truly special that will impact them the rest of their lives.”
Arkansas has eight players who will be wearing the patch. The Razorbacks open their 2016 season on Sept. 3 against Louisiana Tech.
