Hillis Healthy, Ready For Season

After suffering a deep thigh bruise that resulted in a calcium deposit on his right thigh, near his knee, Arkansas fullback Peyton Hillis is back at full speed. The injury left him unable to bend his right leg and he missed the last four games of last season. The senior is now a leader among those participating in offseason workouts.

“Everybody’s working hard together and we’re enjoying this,” Hillis said. “You know, for the seniors, this is our last go-round, so we want to give it all we’ve got.”

McFadden Likes Dressing in Drag

Heisman Hopeful, and Arkansas Razorback, Darren McFadden wore a clown outfit, complete with face paint, to all of his classes last Halloween. This came as no shock to those who knew McFadden in High School at Pulaski Oak Grove (thanks Chris).

“He wore dresses to school,” says McFadden’s favorite high school teacher, Leecie Henson.

Say again?

Yes, dresses. And not just on Halloween.

At times, McFadden would raid his grandmother’s closet, and who knows where else, and wear the most hideous looking outfits he could find to school. “He has the ugliest legs ever,” Henson says. “He would wear these dresses with tennis shoes, and after a while the teachers would get used to it. He just loves to make people laugh.”
