Ben Still

Rebels drop weight, transform bodies

Hugh Freeze knew if he wanted more from some of his key contributors while developing quality depth behind them, Ole Miss’ football coach was going to have to trim the excess fat. Literally. With the help of sports dietitian Frank Newell, head athletic trainer Pat Jernigan and strength coach Paul Jackson, the Rebels have gotten leaner this spring and improved their endurance to better keep up in Freeze’s up-tempo practices. (April 6, 2015, Page 7)

Rebels’ young linemen getting extended looks

It makes sense for Ben Still, Justin Bell and Fahn Cooper to be working as starters on Ole Miss’ offensive line this spring since each held that role a season ago. But lining up directly behind them — and sometimes to the side — are three freshmen, a sophomore and a converted tight end among others. (March 26, 2015, Page 6)

Injuries piling up for Ole Miss during ‘physical’ spring

Ole Miss’ football team is hurting. The Rebels are going through their third week of spring practice with many of their first- and second-stringers watching from the sideline. Most of the injuries are on the offensive side of the ball as an offensive line that ended the 2014 season banged up continues to be depleted while the three quarterbacks vying to replace Bo Wallace have limited receivers to target. (March 25, 2015, Page 6)

Ole Miss’ Tunsil stays ‘strong’ after suffering leg injury

Ole Miss’ showing in the Peach Bowl last week went from bad to ugly to literally fearing for one’s health. That one is a critical piece to any kind of offensive success the Rebels hope to have next year with a new quarterback calling the shots. (January 4, 2015, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Boykin, TCU offense slice up Ole Miss defense

ATLANTA — One of the storylines heading into the Peach Bowl was the TCU offense, led by dual-threat quarterback Trevone Boykin, against the nation’s No. 1 scoring defense in Ole Miss. The question was who would come out on top? And the answer was — the Horned Frogs. (January 1, 2015, Page 1B)

Rebels’ offensive line back at full strength for Hogs

It’s been 32 days and 12 quarters since each member of Ole Miss’ first-team offensive line has taken a snap together. Those streaks are about to come to an end. (November 20, 2014, Page 6A)

NOTEBOOK: Freeze gives glimpse into future at QB position

As was expected, Ole Miss jumped out to a 35-0 lead at halftime Saturday against Presbyterian College. That large lead meant starting quarterback Bo Wallace’s day was done and it gave the fans a glimpse into what the future could potentially look like at the position as the Rebels went on to complete a 48-0 victory. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

Freeze not concerned with scoreboard Saturday

For obvious reasons, it has been a tough week for No. 12 Ole Miss to remain motivated. After five straight weeks of preparing for a Southeastern Conference opponent, the Rebels are spending this week preparing for Saturday’s game against Presbyterian (11 a.m., SEC Network) before entering their final bye week of the season. (November 6, 2014, Page 7A)

COLUMN: Freeze now faced with his toughest coaching job

Ole Miss was so close. Now the Rebels are far away. If you can think of worse way Saturday night’s game against Auburn could’ve ended for Ole Miss, I’m all ears. (November 2, 2014, Page 1B)

Tunsil practicing, Still will try for Ole Miss

During fall camp and through the course of the regular season, the lack of depth on Ole Miss’ offensive line has been a concern and was the one group that had to stay healthy. Not only did the Rebels suffer two injuries last week, they occurred to starting center Ben Still and arguably their best player at the position, left tackle Laremy Tunsil. Still missed the game against LSU, but Tunsil injured his bicep during and was missed badly. (October 30, 2014, Page 7A)
