Ole Miss looking for next man in the middle

Ole Miss is exhausting all avenues in its attempt to find the next man in the middle of its defense. Deterrian Shackelford’s eligibility expired after six seasons last year, leaving a position that’s been stable in recent seasons suddenly surrounded by uncertainty. Shackelford moved to middle linebacker last year to fill the void of Mike Marry, who started for three seasons before Shackelford took over. (April 1, 2015, Page 1B)

      Barber hurls another no-hitter in OHS’s lastest win

      Jason Barber wasn’t perfect, but he was close enough. Oxford’s junior right-hander overwhelmed Saltillo’s lineup from the start, hurling a no-hitter and helping the Chargers (15-0, 3-0 Division 2-5A) keep their perfect record intact with a 10-0 victory in five innings at Edwin Moak Field on Monday. (March 31, 2015, Page 6)

        Judd gets chance to show power in Rebels’ backfield

        Ole Miss didn’t get much power out of its running game last season. Akeem Judd may be able to help with that. The Rebels have amped up the physicality on the ground this spring, emphasizing what head coach Hugh Freeze called “good, dirty runs.” Judd, who’s going through his first spring at Ole Miss, is impressing in that role. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

          Shepard, Bridges lead long, revamped secondary

          They wear No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. It’s a fitting number scheme for the expectations Ole Miss has for Tony Bridges and Tee Shepard in its retooled secondary. Bridges and Shepard have been working as the first-team cornerbacks for a majority of the spring, and barring any significant injuries, they’ll stay there this fall. Ranked by varying recruiting sites as the nation’s top junior college cornerbacks in the last two recruiting cycles, the pair is a different breed than what the Rebels have had the last few seasons. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

            Roth’s gem, Bianco’s hit lead OHS past Trojans again

            Oxford’s baseball team is right where it wants to be. The Chargers finished off a week-long sweep of New Hope with a 3-1 victory Friday at Ole Miss’ Oxford-University Stadium. The win kept Oxford (14-0, 2-0 Division 2-5A) undefeated and gave the Chargers an early leg up in their quest to defend their division championship. (March 29, 2015, Page 2B)

              Manning steps down from CFP selection committee

The former Ole Miss All-American’s decision was announced by Bill Hancock, the CFP’s executive director, on Friday.

                QBs turn in clean sheet in Ole Miss’ scrimmage

                Dan Werner demands three things from his quarterbacks in Ole Miss’ offense: Protect the football, stay ahead of the chains and go fast. Rattling off that checklist and executing it are two different things, but the Rebels’ offensive coordinator liked he what he saw from his signal callers Saturday in a game-like situation. (March 29, 2015, Page 1B)

                  Ole Miss’ quarterback competition ‘really close’

                  There’s been little separation this spring among the candidates vying to take over the reins of Ole Miss’ offense from Bo Wallace. And it doesn’t sound like the race to be the Rebels’ next quarterback will end anytime soon. Rising sophomores Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade have been biding their time the last two seasons while junior-to-be Chad Kelly came from the junior college ranks in January to add a third competitor to the mix. (March 27, 2015, Page 1B)

                    Kelly off to good start

                    So far, so good for Chad Kelly. The newest addition to Ole Miss’ quarterback competition has had the kind of quiet transition to life in the Southeastern Conference that was required when he arrived on campus in January. A player known just as much for what he’s done off the field as what he’s done on it, Kelly has anywhere from the end of the month to the end of August to make his case to be Bo Wallace’s replacement. (March 27, 2015, Page 1B)
