FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Even if you haven’t met Dick Trammel, it’s almost certain that you’ve seen him calling the Hogs at a Homecoming game. Trammel, a 1960 graduate, joined the spirit squad in the late 1950s and has been faithfully “Calling Those Hogs” at football games ever since.

“It is a remarkable thing to see someone who supports the university as much and as strongly as Dick Trammel,” said Chancellor Joe Steinmetz. “Our future depends on this spirit and this engagement by our alumni and friends, and Dick has certainly been central in all of this.”
