Cofield: Our Good Man – Coaching for Literacy


Ole Miss football head coach, Hugh is huge in the eyes of the Rebel football nation. But, as we are all learning, there is much more than football to this good man, our good man.

Coach Freeze speaks often about the platform we are all given by which we can impact the lives of those around us. That couldn’t be anymore evident than in the coach’s efforts to improve the lives of kids that will never take a snap as an Ole Miss Rebel. And, although they may never even make the trip down from Memphis to see the Grove, they are extended Ole Miss family members.

Join Coach Hugh Freeze, CNN journalist Wayne Drash, Ole Miss alums and fans, and the spirit of the coach’s personal platform, for an evening in Memphis.
