FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - Arkansas held their 2nd spring scrimmage over the weekend. More than a few fans took in the workout at Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

Jonesboro native Jashaud Stewart recovered a fumble on defense for the Razorbacks. Head coach Sam Pittman was asked about the progress of the former Golden Hurricane. “I’m proud of Jashaud,” Pittman said. “What he teaches is like any business or anything, if you work hard and you come to work everyday with that lunch pail attitude, and that’s what he had in high school, that you can move up in your business and you can move up on the football field, whatever it may be. We’d still like to see him get another 10 pounds, I think he will. But he plays extremely hard, we want to reward that as well.”

Stewart is in his 2nd season at Arkansas. He saw the field in the special teams unit in 2020. The Red-White Game is set for Saturday, April 17th. Kickoff is at 2:00pm, it will be streamed online on SEC Network Plus.
