Arkansas' Hocker to handle all kicking duties



FAYETTEVILLE, AR (AP) - Zach Hocker has added punter to his already loaded resume this season at Arkansas.

The Razorbacks senior is already one of the most accomplished kickers in school history through three seasons. He told new coach Bret Bielema last December that he wanted to add punting to his field goal and kickoff duties.

Bielema, who was unsure whether Hocker's right leg could withstand the workload, promised to consider the request. Hocker earned all three positions with a solid preseason camp.

The kicker enters this season needing just seven points to tie Bill Burnett's school record of 294 points for his career.

Bielema plans to keep Hocker fresh by giving him Wednesdays and Fridays off from practice.
