Bell re­gards

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Red­shirt sopho­more Ja­mario Bell had just seemed to set­tle into a role at the “Hog” out­side line­backer spot when he suf­fered a bro­ken bone in his foot that re­quired surgery Mon­day.

“I hurt for Ja­mario,” out­side lineback­ers coach Chad Walker said. “He did ev­ery­thing we asked him to do. He came in ev­ery day with a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude.”

Walker said Bell, who had bounced from de­fen­sive end to tight end and back to de­fense this spring, had made big strides as a stu­dent, team­mate and de­fender in re­cent months.

“And so there’s no doubt in my mind when I tell you I be­lieve he’ll be able to over­come ad­ver­sity here,” Walker said. “Yeah, he was pro­gress­ing re­ally well.”
