HOOVER, Ala. — As deep as the Ole Miss Rebels are in some positions like running back and wide receiver, they are just as thin at positions like tight end, cornerback and safety. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said those three positions are the thinnest of any on the team during his talks at the Southeastern Conference Media Days Tuesday. (more…) (July 17, 2013, Page 9)
His words resonated Monday with the confirmation that sophomore receiver Collins Moore would be out with what could be a season-ending torn labrum, while junior defensive back Charles Sawyer will be out 4-6 weeks with a torn quad. (August 7, 2012, Page 6)

Ole Miss’ final verbal commitment, and subsequent letter of intent, of the 2012 football signing class made the biggest impact Wednesday for first-year coach Hugh Freeze and his staff.
As highly rated and needed as Aberdeen defensive end Channing Ward is to the signing class, Oxford, Ala., Trae Elston (6-foot, 183 pounds) coming on board Wednesday and picking the Rebels over LSU and Oklahoma State live on ESPNU from his high school helped finish out Freeze’s first class in style.

Staying true to typical form, the Lafayette Commodores went on the road and up-ended Senatobia on senior night 48-8.
The victory improved Lafayette’s record to 10-0 overall and 4-0 in Region 2-4A. (October 24, 2011, Page 4B)
the books the Oxford Chargers must now turn their attention to a regional rival in the Senatobia Warriors.
The Warriors (3-0), fresh off of a lopsided 32-0 victory at Independence, always give Oxford a hard-fought game and Friday’s game at 7:30 p.m. should be no exception. (September 8, 2011, Page 6)
The No. 1 ranked Lafayette Commodores dominated Senatobia in every aspect of the game Friday night, beating the Warriors 54-7 at William L Buford Stadium. The Commodores improved to 8-0 overall on the year and 4-0 in Region 2-4A play despite starting the game more on the sluggish side. (October 11, 2010, Page 1B)
