Jeremy Liggins

Liggins focuses on ‘being the best tackle I can be’

Jeremy Liggins didn’t put up a fight. When Ole Miss’ coaches approached the rising junior about moving to yet another position before spring practice started, one where he would go from having a chance to touch the football on any given play to having no shot, Liggins didn’t plead to stay put. He did what the Rebels needed him to do — and what he may have needed to do for his future. (April 9, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Depth breeding spring competition for Ole Miss

Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze likes the numbers he sees when he looks around the practice field. Three full recruiting classes for Freeze and his staff have the Rebels’ roster stocked with the most quality players they’ve had since arriving in Oxford four Decembers ago. The starters at each position — at least the ones that have locked up that distinction — jog off the field after a few reps and are replaced by bodies that are nearly just as big, move nearly as fast and can do many of the same things athletically without much a dropoff. (April 3, 2015, Page 7A)

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)

OM claims Egg Bowl, knocks MSU out of playoff

Ole Miss pulled out all the stops to dash its biggest rival’s championship dreams. The 18th-ranked Rebels ripped off their longest run of the season, got a touchdown pass from a running back and shut down Mississippi State’s vaunted running game to end the regular-season with a 31-17 victory Saturday, snapping a three-game Southeastern Conference losing streak in front of 62,058 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (November 30, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

NASCAR driver Stenhouse Jr. makes pit stop at Ole Miss’ practice

NASCAR Sprint Cup driver, and friend of head coach Hugh Freeze, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. visited the campus of Ole Miss Tuesday to talk to several student groups about the upcoming Talladega races in October. While in town he caught up with Freeze and spent some time on the field during football practice catching passes from quarterback Bo Wallace. (September 17, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Sanders’ career day leads Ole Miss over Ragin’ Cajuns

Vince Sanders was having an OK start to the 2014 season with seven catches for 100 yards in the first two games. Saturday, in Ole Miss’ 56-15 win over Louisiana-Lafayette, the Rebel senior wideout had a career day. (September 14, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Liggins getting work exclusively as tight end

Any packages that had Jeremy Liggins operating as the quarterback have been scratched from Ole Miss’ playbook. Liggins moved from quarterback to tight end at the start of fall camp, but the former Lafayette High standout was still moonlighting as a Wildcat quarterback at times. That’s no longer the case as the 6-foot-3, 296-pound Liggins continues to learn the nuances of his new position. (August 25, 2014, Page 7)
