Razorback Trio Adds Midseason All-America Honors
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas football’s Beaux Limmer, Dwight McGlothern and Drew Sanders were recognized on midseason All-America teams Tuesday.
Sanders, who claimed a spot on Sporting News’ All-America team earlier Tuesday, earned three more midseason nods from the Associated Press, CBS Sports and The Athletic (Second Team). Along with Sanders, McGlothern was named a Midseason Second Team All-American by The Athletic. Limmer received Midseason Second Team All-American status from Pro Football Focus.
Sanders, a junior, leads the SEC and ranks second nationally in sacks (6.5) and forced fumbles (3) this season. The Denton, Texas, product is the first Arkansas defender with three or more forced fumbles in a season since DL McTelvin Agim (3) and DL Armon Watts (3) in 2018. In seven starts, Sanders has a team-leading four games with 10+ tackles, including a pair of multi-sack efforts, and ranks fourth in the league in total tackles with 63. With the help of Sanders, Arkansas leads the conference in sacks (21.0) and sacks per game (3.0). Stuffing the stat sheet in Arkansas’ SEC opener vs. South Carolina, Sanders recorded 11 total tackles with 3.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass breakup. Since 2000, only two SEC defenders have registered double-digit tackles with 2+ sacks, 2+ forced fumbles and at least one pass breakup in a game: Sanders (Arkansas) vs. South Carolina in 2022 and Greg Hardy (Ole Miss) vs. Alabama in 2007. His 16 tackles at Mississippi State on Oct. 8 are the most by an Arkansas defender this season.
McGlothern, a junior, has started all seven games at cornerback and reeled in the Hogs’ first three interceptions this year. The Houston native’s three interceptions pace Arkansas and tie for second in the SEC. McGlothern has compiled 20 stops while leading the team in interceptions with three and ranking second in pass breakups with four. McGlothern filed a season high five tackles and one forced fumble in Arkansas’ 52-35 road win over BYU last Saturday.
Limmer, a redshirt junior, has made seven starts at right guard this season. Behind Limmer’s blocking, RB Raheim “Rocket” Sanders has notched an SEC-leading 870 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns in 2022. The Razorbacks have produced a 100-yard rusher in a program-record eight consecutive games dating back to the 2021 season. With the help of Limmer, the Hogs rank second in the SEC in rushing yards (1,680) and rushing yards per game (240.0) while averaging 488.57 yards of total offense per game. Playing in 536 offensive snaps this season, Limmer has allowed just one hit on the quarterback. Under Limmer’s protection, QB KJ Jefferson ranks 10th nationally in passing efficiency (171.5). The Hogs sit third in the SEC in team passing efficiency (161.16) and fourth in passing yards per completion (14.14).
Following a bye week, Arkansas is back in action at Auburn at 11 a.m. CT Saturday, Oct. 29, on SEC Network. For ticket information, call the Razorback Ticket Center at 479-575-5151 or click here.
