Potential walk-on gets message across creatively

If nothing else, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema will have to give Samson Tamijani points for creativeness.

The UA student was in the stands when Cole Hedlund clanged a 20-yard field goal off the left upright Saturday against TCU.

A former kicker at an NAIA school, acting on a suggestion from his roommate, printed up 36 QR codes linking to a YouTube account of him kicking and put them at key places around the football offices.

Our friend Andrew Hutchinson at Hawgs247.com tracked down Tamijani for their story:

“I don’t want fame or a statement,” Tamijani said. “I just want a chance from them going into the spring so they know I’m useful.

“The only eyes I wanted to see my stuff are the coaching staff. That’s all I’m trying to do.”

He was initially hesitant to speak with Hawgs247 because he didn’t make the QR codes for media attention and doesn’t want to hurt his chances of getting a shot with the team, but reluctantly agreed to share his story.
