Cook's Ready To Mix It Up

Arkansas senior offensive lineman Brey Cook thinks a great off-season will translate into success as the Razorbacks hit the practice field Monday for the first practice of fall camp.

As one of his team's leaders, Arkansas offensive lineman Brey Cook took his earned seat up front in the first team meeting last night and plans to lead the way for the offense this season in his last college season.

“We're hungry,” Cook said. “We're ready to come in and pop pads. It's been awhile, been a couple of months. It's been a couple of months. It's been such a good summer that we have had...Everyone is kind of ancy, jumping round, fidgeting, ready to hit. It will nice to get out there with the whole team, coaches and everybody.”

Arkansas indeed does start its fall practices Monday afternoon after finishing up its off-season workouts a year ago with some max lifts on the field at Razorback Stadium.

“It was as close to camp as you can get, being out there on the field and heavy weights in our hands,” Cook said. “That was kind of the summit. We're ready to get into camp.”

Although Arkansas lost center Travis Swanson to the NFL, the Razorbacks return four players who have started and are adding in four highly regarded newcomers.

“It's a great time for competition – younger guys to step up and challenge the older guys for their sports and the starters to really defend their position,” Cook said.

None of the vets should feel secure according to Cook.

“They understand the new guys are going to come in and offer competition, which is what we want,” Cook said. “Everybody wants competition. We want somebody to fight with.”
