FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Univ. of Ark.) – Arkansas senior center Frank Ragnow added a pair of All-America honors to his collection Monday, earning second-team status from the Football Writers Association of America and third-team acclaim from The Associated Press.
Ragnow, who also accepted his invitation to the 2018 Reese’s Senior Bowl on Monday morning, is the first offensive lineman in school history to earn All-America honors in back-to-back seasons since 2007 Rimington Trophy recipient Jonathan Luigs (2006-07).
Last week, Ragnow was named a first-team All-American at center by Pro Football Focus for the second consecutive season, leading all Football Bowl Subdivision offensive linemen with a 93.7 overall grade. He paced all centers with a 92.4 grade in the run game to go with an 88.3 mark in pass protection in eight games played. He allowed only one pressure on his 255 pass blocking snaps.
A finalist for the Senior CLASS Award and semifinalist for both the Wuerffel Trophy and Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year award, Ragnow started 33 consecutive games and didn’t allow a sack over 2,603 career snaps at center and right guard before sustaining a season-ending ankle injury during the Auburn game on Oct. 21. He had only missed 43 offensive snaps since becoming a permanent starter as a sophomore in 2015.
