FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas redshirt senior long snapper Jordan Silver has been named to the Patrick Mannelly Award Watch List, which recognizes the best FBS senior long snapper.
Silver has been the Razorbacks’ long snapper the last three seasons, appearing in 36 games over that span. Last year he handled all snapping duties on field goals and punts, and registered his first career tackle at Texas A&M.
The Branson, Mo. native also earned Wuerrfel Trophy Watch List honors this preseason.
The Patrick Mannelly award, named after 16-year NFL long snapper Patrick Mannelly, was created in 2019 by Bernie’s Book Bank, a non-profit based in Lake Bluff, Ill. Ten semifinalists will be announced on November 15, 2021, with the list being trimmed down to three finalists on November 29. The award presentation is slated for December 11 in Lake Bluff.
The Razorbacks open the season at home against former Southwest Conference rival Rice at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4, on SEC Network+/ESPN+. Season tickets are available now and can be purchased here or by calling the Razorback Ticket Center at (479) 575-5151.
