Ole Miss Baseball

Golson turns down offer from BoSox

The wild roller coaster that surrounded the Boston Red Sox late courtship of dual-sport standout Senquez Golson finally came to an end Monday night with the passing of Major League Baseball’s midnight (ET) deadline for drafted players to sign professional contracts.

Golson, who had been practicing with the Gridiron Rebels up until flying to Boston early Monday, turned down at least one offer of $1.3 million according to RebelGrove.com to retain his amateur status.

It was believed all along that Golson’s decision would go down to the wire, so much so that following Monday’s football practice Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt asked reporters if there was any news. (August 16, 2011, Page 8)

        Ole Miss freshmen adapting to college life

        Six key pieces of the future of Ole Miss’ baseball program didn’t just stroll into the athletics department on Thursday like typical freshmen.

        Instead, pitchers Hawtin Buchanan, Josh Laxer and Chris Ellis, catcher/first baseman Sikes Orvis, outfielder Auston Bousfield and outfielder/left-handed pitcher Chase Reeves entered the meeting room sounding more like old men, discussing how sore they were from the advanced workout regiment they’d been put through during summer school, nodding in agreement to one another’s assessments.

        It’s all part of the process of becoming a Division 1 athlete, and all six have accepted that. (August 1, 2011, Page 8A)

                    When San Jacinto catcher Ryan Hornback was drafted — and eventually signed — by the Pittsburgh Pirates, that opened up a void for the Ole Miss baseball team that Austin Knight was more than happy to fill.
