Lanard Bonner added to Outland Trophy watch list
Arkansas State redshirt senior Lanard Bonner has been placed on the 2018 Outland Trophy Preseason Watch List after his outstanding performance on the Red Wolves offensive line in 2017.
Bonner, an All-Sun Belt Conference Preseason First-Team selection, started all 12 games at right tackle for a team that ranked No. 1 in the league in scoring offense (37.8 ppg), total offense (495.3 ypg), pass offense (342.2 ypg), third-down conversions (44.1 pct) and first downs (322). He helped pave the way for 5,944 yards of total offense which stands as the third most in school history.
The Birmingham, Ala., native was also part of an offensive line that blocked for 17 rushing and 38 passing touchdowns. Bonner also helped an offensive line that produced over 400 yards of total offensive in 10 of 12 games, including a school and Sun Belt record 781 yards against ULM.
