Spring is in full bloom on the Ole Miss campus and that means the sixth annual Rebels’ Choice Awards are just around the corner. The annual event, celebrating the accomplishments – both academic and athletic – of Ole Miss student-athletes, is slated for Monday April 25, 2016 inside the brand new Pavilion at Ole Miss. Richard Cross will serve as master of ceremonies and DJ Babi Mac will be a special guest.

The Rebels’ Choice Awards is an event to celebrate Ole Miss student athletes but the Rebels would like to share their special evening with the greater Oxford, Lafayette and University communities. The Ole Miss athletics department is inviting all to come share in the free annual awards show. The red carpet, featuring Ole Miss student athletes, will begin at 5:30 p.m. at The Pavilion plaza with the awards show scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. In addition, Steak and Shake and Raising Canes will be open prior to the start of the show.

The Rebels’ Choice Awards include 18 awards in which members of Ole Miss senior administration and Ole Miss student-athlete advisory committee (SAAC) select the winners. Awards include men’s and women’s sports winners in the following categories: Most Valuable Rebel, Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year, Team of the Year, Scholar-Athlete of the Year, HottyToddy Award. Ole Miss also annually gives out the Bennie Abram Award, given in memory of former Ole Miss football walk-on Bennie Abram who passed away, is given to a walk-on student-athlete who exemplifies the spirit of Bennie Abram.

The Rebels’ Choice Awards is built into the celebration of National Student-Athlete Day, which is celebrated every year in April. Established in 1987, National Student-Athlete Day is America’s day to celebrate outstanding student-athletes who have achieved excellence in academics and athletics while having made significant contributions to the community. The day was established by the National Consortium for Academics & Sports and Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society and is co-sponsored by the NCAA.
