Mike Bender Passed Away

Former Arkansas player and coach Mike Bender passed away Saturday. Mike is most famously known of late as the Arkansas coach for Brandon Burlsworth. Mike has been ill with kidney disease and on dialysis for some time. I believe he was living in Forrest City. Mike played offensive tackle in 65-65. He coached at Arkansas from 1995-97 under Danny Ford.

A great Hog and a better man. Prayers for his family.
