Episode 66: Tony Bua

Tony Bua has never lacked passion. That fire and competitiveness — and plenty of big hits — made him an easy fan favorite at Arkansas. So it’s hard to imagine that the Razorbacks’ all-time leader in tackles almost wasn’t a Hog at all — and almost wasn’t playing major college football. Bua was undersized and under-recruited in high school. So how did a move to a new state and new school right before his senior year change everything? Once he got a chance, Bua did everything he could to make an impact, and his career with the Razorbacks was nothing short of electric. He was part of Arkansas teams that won seven games against top 25 teams, played in two seven overtime wins and won an SEC West title. Razorback fans won’t forget Tony Bua anytime soon.
