Arkansas Wide Receivers Joe Adams, Greg Childs and Jarius Wright were named to the Pony Express Award Watch List as the best  tandem in the nation. They join 47 other tandems to make up this year’s annual Watch List.

The award is named after Craig James and Erik Dickerson, both from SMU. The award is based on “work ethic, desire, on- and off-field leadership, and play-making ability.”

In their 3 seasons at Arkansas, the trio has combined for 5400+ yards, 41 TDs, and 324 receptions. All three are listed in the Top 15 Arkansas receivers of All-time for yards, touchdowns and receptions.

The Pony Express award is voted on by a panel of judges at the conclusion of the 2011 season.
