Hugh Freeze

Treadwell working his way back to full speed

Laquon Treadwell has been running routes for the better part of a month. He’s been running around longer than that. The rehabilitation process for Ole Miss’ star wide receiver has been progressing at warp speed since he suffered his gruesome leg injury in the final seconds of the Rebels’ nail-biting loss to Auburn in early November inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (March 26, 2015, Page 6)

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)

New faces in new places headline start of Ole Miss’ spring

It may not feel like it outside, but spring has arrived for the Ole Miss football team as the Rebels begin practice. There were a lot of questions heading into this year, and coach Hugh Freeze attempted to answer as many as he could during his annual spring press conference Tuesday. (March 4, 2015, Page 1B, 2B)

Rebels’ young quarterbacks on alert with addition of Kelly

Even when Bo Wallace was still in an Ole Miss uniform, the question lingered: Will it be Ryan Buchanan on DeVante Kincade that prevails in the competition to replace the Rebels’ quarterback in 2015? Turns out it may not be either one. Another signal caller is set to enter the mix in East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly, who signed with the Rebels in December and still has his scholarship despite being arrested in the same month. The addition of Kelly blows the race wide open when spring practice starts later today. (March 3, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Ole Miss gets commitment from top prep QB Patterson

It’s early, but Ole Miss is piecing together one of the nation’s best recruiting classes for 2016. The Rebels added arguably their most important piece to it Tuesday. Calvary Baptist Academy (Shreveport, Louisiana) quarterback Shea Patterson gave his verbal commitment to Ole Miss during a ceremony at his school. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Patterson chose the Rebels over LSU and USC. (February 18, 2015, Page 1B)

Freeze aware of possible ‘embarassment’ with Kelly

It would’ve been easy for Hugh Freeze to give his latest junior college quarterback signee the boot a month ago. Instead, Ole Miss’ coach is giving Chad Kelly yet another chance. Freeze is just hoping it doesn’t come back to bite him. (February 6, 2015, Page 6A)

Rebels’ latest signing class features hits, misses

Wednesday could’ve gone better for the future of Ole Miss’ football program. It also could’ve been worse. The Rebels signed 22 players as part of this year’s recruiting class, including 18 who were verbally committed entering the day. Some needs were addressed more thoroughly than others, but head coach Hugh Freeze liked the balance of his newest crop of signees, which gave the Rebels their third straight consensus top-25 class nationally. (February 5, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

COLUMN: Drama far from over with Ole Miss recruiting like this

Another year, and another consensus top-25 recruiting class seems to be lining up for Ole Miss. But it’s going to be another wild ride to Wednesday’s finish line. Hugh Freeze and his staff have traveled near and far for the last year — and then some — and they’ve had some of the country’s top recruits come to them. They’ve sold the program. They’ve made their best pitches. They’ve done all they can do. Now they wait. (February 3, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Ole Miss football players Elston, Stringfellow arrested

A pair of Ole Miss football players were arrested early Thursday morning. Safety Trae Elston and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow were taken in by the Oxford Police Department and booked into the Lafayette County Detention Center at 12:10 a.m., according to the jail docket. Details of the incident were not available. (January 23, 2015, Page 6)
