Ole Miss senior defensive tackle Jerrell Powe was announced as a member of the All-Southeastern Conference First Team defense this morning.
Summer camps aren’t just for high schoolers and aspiring collegiate football players.
Two weeks ago Ole Miss quarterback Nathan Stanley joined a handful of other college signal callers, and a slew of high schoolers, in Thibodaux, La., for the 2010 Manning Passing Academy.
