Razorback senior wide reciever Cobi Hamilton has been named an AP third team All American a week after being selected as a unanimous All-SEC first team receiver.
Hamilton lead the SEC and was fifth in the NCAA this past season with an average of 111.25
receiving yards per game. His average of 7.50 catches per game
topped the SEC and tied for 12th in the NCAA. The Texarkana, Texas, native ended his career catching at
least one pass in 34 straight games, the longest active streak in the SEC and
tied for 10th-longest active in the NCAA.
Hamilton recorded greatest season by a receiver in Razorback history and one of the best ever by an SEC pass catcher. He broke the Arkansas single-season records for receptions, receiving yards and 10-plus catch games as well as UA career records for receptions and 10-plus catch games. His 90 catches in 2012 broke the previous record of 66 set by Jarius Wright in 2011 and tied him for the third-highest single-season total in SEC history. Hamilton's 1,335 receiving yards broke Wright's record of 1,117 from last season and rank fourth on the SEC's single-season list. He also broke Wright's career record with 175 catches, bettering the mark of 168 put up from 2008-11, and became the first Razorback to record more than two 10-plus catch games with five. Hamilton also had four 100-yard receiving games in 2012, tied for third on UA's single-season list.
