        Just because they may be done suiting up in red and blue doesn’t necessarily mean several Ole Miss football players need to hang up their spikes.

        Friday at the Indoor Practice Facility 12 Rebels ran, jumped, and lifted for 20 National Football League scouts in an attempt to either improve their draft stock, or, in the cases of some of the lesser-known prospects, catch the attention of a team. (more…) (March 12, 2012, Page 2B)

                THE GODFREY SHOW – Twelve quarterbacks were selected in the 2010 NFL Draft. Jevan Snead wasn’t one of them. This was not the year for Snead to go pro. Ill-advised? Absolutely.

See what Godfrey has to say about Dexter’s draft chances on The Godfrey Show in this week’s Oxford Town. (April 15, 2010, Page 12)
