He won his first NCAA event title in 1988. Floreal was a nine-time All-American at Arkansas and was part of four NCAA indoor team championships. He also won six Southwest Conference titles with five victories in the triple jump and an indoor long jump crown in 1990. Floreal helped the Razorbacks to seven SWC team titles. He remains the No. 3 performer in the triple jump, indoor and outdoor, in school history.

Lang was a three-year starter and key member of two NCAA Tournament teams in his four years as a Razorback. He was named to the 1988 National Association of Basketball Coaches all-district team and concluded his career with 690 rebounds, 252 blocks and 838 points. He continues to rank No. 6 on Arkansas' career rebounding list and No. 3 all-time in blocks. A Pine Bluff, Ark., native, Lang is one of just two Arkansas players to lead the team in blocks for four straight seasons and had career highs with eight blocked shots twice during the 1987 season against Texas Tech and Rice. Lang also led the Razorbacks in rebounding his sophomore, junior and senior seasons before getting drafted with the No. 28 pick by the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association.
Bill McClard, football
McClard lettered from 1969-71 and was a first-team All-American in 1970 and '71. He connected on 50 of 51 PAT attempts in 1970, setting school records for single-season PAT makes and attempts that stood until 2007. He left Arkansas as the school's record holder in career PAT attempts with 133, career PAT makes with 125 and longest field goal of 60 yards. His 60-yarder against SMU in 1970 was an NCAA record at the time and still stands as the third-longest in school history. He was chosen in the third round of the 1972 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and appeared in nine games as a rookie before spending the next three seasons with the New Orleans Saints. During his four-year professional career, he made 26 field goals and 31 PATs while appearing in 34 games.\

He collected 1,558 all-purpose yards with 10 touchdowns, rushing 272 times for 1,260 yards and six touchdowns and catching 31 passes for 298 yards and four touchdowns. His 245 all-purpose yards against Ole Miss in 1970 ranked as the second-highest single-game total at the time and still rank eighth all-time at UA. He was picked in the 10th round of the 1970 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions and appeared in 11 games for the Lions as a rookie.
Ronn Reynolds, baseball
Ronn Reynolds, a junior college transfer, was a two-year letterman for the Razorbacks in 1979 and 1980. A native of Wichita, Kan., Reynolds earned All-America and All-Southwest Conference honors in 1979 after finishing the season with a .347 average, six homers and 42 RBI. Reynolds helped the '79 Razorbacks to a second-place finish in Arkansas' first appearance in the College World Series. Reynolds was named to the Southwest Conference All-Tournament Team in 1979 and '80. He was drafted as a catcher by the New York Mets in the fifth round of the 1980 MLB Draft.

A three-year letterman, Rhoden was the 13th Razorback to earn All-America honors in basketball when he was named to Converse's honorable mention squad in 1960. He was also a two-year first-team All-Southwest Conference selection in 1960 and 1961 while also taking National Association of Basketball Coaches all-district accolades in 1960. The Hot Springs, Ark., native was Arkansas' leading scorer in both 1959 (14.6) and 1960 (16.2), and concluded his 69-game career with averages of 14.2 points and 6.7 rebounds. He shot better than 41 percent from the floor over his three seasons and was a 68 percent free-throw shooter. He was just 22 points shy of eclipsing 1,000 for his three-year career.
Jody Rittenhouse, cross country, and track and field
During the early stages of the program, Rittenhouse was a standout at middle distances for the women's cross country, and track and field teams. In 1978, she made history as the program's first All-America selection in cross country. She added a pair of outdoor accolades to finish her career as a three-time All-American. Her name is still present in the program's records book as the fifth-fastest performer in the indoor 1,500 meters and as a member of the No. 3 indoor mile relay team.
Lisa Sparks, track and field
Sparks was an early sprinting star for the women's track and field program, competing from 1980-83. She was a two-time All-American with a 1982 honor for the 4x100-meter relay and 1983 recognition at 440 yards. Sparks continues to hold a presence in Arkansas' records book as the school-record holder at 300 and 440 yards. She owns three of the top-five times in both events. She was also part of school-record performances in the indoor 4x200-meter relay with Wanda Harris, Patricia Johnson and Gloria Russell, and the mile relay with Russell, Linda Bedford and Diane Ousley.

He was a team captain in 1969, helping lead the Razorbacks to a No. 3 finish in the UPI poll and a No. 7 final placing in the AP poll after finishing the season 9-2 and playing in the Sugar Bowl. His punt return yardage total of 134 yards against Wichita State in 1969 still ranks fourth on UA's single-game list, and his 90-yard punt return touchdown from that game is the third-longest punt return touchdown in school history. In his three seasons, the team put together a record of 23-8-1 and earned a share of the 1968 SWC crown. He was selected in the sixth round of the 1970 NFL Draft by the New York Jets.
