In terms of career FG %. The junior has made enough field goals to surpass Zach Hocker for the top spot in the official
Razorbacks record book.

Here's more about his story and why he wears No. 19 to carry on the legacy of his late father, Scott Limpert.

Now let's see if that accuracy translates into some wins!

 Well when you say Arkansas History you don’t need to forget Steve Little.

In both Cotton and Orange bowl games, Little set team PAT records for bowl games, kicking four in each. He also set a team career record for points with 280. During Little's career with Arkansas, the Razorbacks went 10–2 in 1975, 5–5–1 in 1976, and 11–1 in 1977.[9] During his final year at Arkansas Little played under head coach Lou Holtz.[2]

No question about that! I'm too young to have seen him firsthand, but it seems like he and Sam Irwin-Hill were the best athletes the Hogs have ever had at placekicker/punter, correct?

Here's a 1977 Sports Illustrated excerpt I included in the separate post below

“In my opinion, he would be our starting quarterback right now if we had let him do both,” said Arkansas Assistant Athletic Director Lon Farrell. “He’s a super athlete. You’ve never seen anything like the guy. You see him throwing on the practice field, you’d think that’s our quarterback. Gosh, he can throw the football.”

Arkansas’ baseball coach tells of the time Little wandered by the campus ball park and stepped into the batting cage for a few cuts. He stunned the coach and everybody else by taking four swings and hitting four home runs."

What isn’t mentioned in the article is the rule change where a long missed field goal stopped being a touchback. In other words guys like Steve Little were allowed to try long field goals and weren’t penalized for missing. It was mearly a touchback. He missed many long field goal attempts that would never even be tried today.

But absolute props to Limpert. He’s doing great.

Arkansas has had a lot of very accurate place kickers.  But very few who reached All America status Ish Ordonez, Steve Little, Bill McClard are a few that I remember right now.  Any time those three lined up to kick the ball it was GOOD!

on December 6th, 1969, Arkansas twice drove the ball well within Bill McClard's range on the Longhorn side of the 50 late in the 4th quarter....twice we threw picks while only trailing by one point. Once, Bill Montgomery threw a pick into the end zone handing the ball back to Texas. All we needed was one FG yet McClard never got the chance to win the UPI National Championship for the Hogs.....JFB often said he never watched that game again...I guess Aggy will Aggy and Arkansas will Arkansas and forever the two things will be

I’m proud of Connor. He has improved significantly. I remember his confidence in the OM game last year. Perfect every time he had to kick that winning field goal.
Connor, I know your Dad is very proud for sure.
Keep up the good work young man! WPS!

I thought Kendall Trainer held the record for most consecutive made, something like 22 straight, that should have made him one of the most accurate. He's the most accurate I can remember.

He doesn't hold the career mark, but DEFINITELY holds the single season record (1988) — not only the most FGs made in a season, but also the most accurate.

FIELD GOAL PERCENTAGE IN SINGLE SEASON

Rank   FG % (Season; min 10 made)   Player   Year
1   0.889   Kendall Trainor (24-27)   1988
2   0.870   Todd Wright (20-23)   1989
3   0.867   Zach Hocker (13-15)   2013
4   0.842   Zach Hocker (16-19)   2010

wasn't there also  a change  requiring  kickers to use normal game balls, they could no longer use one reserved kicking. ( I don't remember the details something like they liked an older softer leather ball.)

Kendall's record setting FG, for most consecutive, came as our first points in the classic Ark / Miami game in 1988.  Hit the inside corner of the upright and crossbar and bounced through, from 50-something yards. Tied the game at 3 and broke the old record.  I'll always remember that.

One of the worst decisions ever made.  Montgomery underthrew the WR.  Just kick the fricken ball and win the game.

We have had many good kickers. Steve Little was a great kicker and punter. He was the difference in many games. I watched him kick the record at the time. I believe it was the SMU game in 77. Sent us to the Orange Bowl vs OU. Fans through oranges on the field at the end of the game.

Hey ronmahony, you can get my book on Kindle for sure. On Amazon here:
https://amzn.to/2D05sPo

"Sports teaches so much about life--giving your best, the power of a team, unity and love. I wish America could live that way. I hope many more get to read this refreshing journey.... it's a book every sports fan in Arkansas should read."
--Ken Hatfield, Razorbacks head football coach

BTW, Limpert on the career is now up to 85.2%. If he had 50 career attempts, he'd be No. 1 on the all-time SEC list!

Little’s kick came in 1977 against Texas in the only game we lost that year - 13-9. It turned out to be an exhibition by two of the best college placekickers of all time. Russell Erxleben had kicked his own 67-yarder two weeks earlier. Little won the kicking battle that day going 3 for 4. His only miss was from 60.  Erxleben was 2 for 3. He made 58 and 52 yarders and missed from 33. Arkansas led 9-6 midway through the fourth quarter when Earl Campell took over on an 8 play 80 yard drive. Texas scored with 4:21 to play and won 13-9. Deja vu all over again. Campbell finished with 188 yards on 34 carries.

As great as Steve Little was - he was a two-time All-American and a First Round draft choice - he wasn’t accurate by today’s standards. He made 53 of 89 field goal attempts and missed 10 of 131 extra points attempts. That might get him crucified on Hogville.

Steve Little didn’t go to Arkansas to kick. He had never been a specialist. Frank Broyles recruited him to play QB. Placekicking in general has improved quite a bit since the ‘70’s. The popularity of soccer has been one factor. So has the early training and camps available through organizations like Kohl’s Kicking.

Steve Little was pretty much one of those freaks of nature. He could kick himself in the forehead and averaged almost 45 yards per punt when 40 was considered good. Watch his follow through on his 67 yarder:


The video mentions “the big three kickers of the SWC”.  The other was Tony Franklin, Texas A&M’s barefoot kicker who hit a 65-yarder and a 64-yarder against Baylor in 1976. In those days, Arkansas,Texas, and A&M were in FG range when they crossed the 50. Was probably never anything like it in any conference before or since.
