Today was a very somber day in Little Rock as Arkansas Razorback Tight End Garrett Uekman was laid to rest. He was only 19 years old. An estimated 1400 people attended Garrett’s funeral including family, friends, teammates, and coaches. In fact, the University of Arkansas campus was eerily quiet today.

Four buses including Arkansas football players left from Fayetteville early Monday morning en-route for a day none of them expected to be apart of. The team attended the funeral in their Red Warm-up suits.
