Ole Miss softball senior pitcher Madi Osias has been named to the SEC Softball Community Service Team, the league announced Wednesday morning.

The SEC sponsors Community Service Teams for all 21 league sponsored sports. The team looks to highlight a student-athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.

Osias has been a key member of the Oxford community in her time as a Rebel, participating in multiple events that served multiple causes.

She participated in Trick or Trunk, the Rebels’ annual event providing treats and learning materials to children. In Reading with the Rebels, she was a frequent visitor to area schools reading to classes, visiting with children for one-on-one reading time and leading group discussions.

The Tustin, California native has also worked with More Than A Meal, serving the people of Oxford with good meals, encouragement, and providing a community feel to those in need. She also assisted with individuals at the North Mississippi Regional Center, one of six comprehensive regional centers in Mississippi that provides an array of services to individuals with intellectual and related developmental disabilities in the northern 23 counties of the state.

She is also active on her own campus serving as a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

Ole Miss: A personal reflection from Paige Henderson

For some, Ole Miss is the college they grew up loving as they wore red and blue every day or attended football games with their parents.  For others, it is a campus full of southern charm with beautiful landscaping and a family environment.  For me, the university is a treasure filled with memories, heartbreaks, love and learning.

When I was a senior in high school, I remember taking the dreaded SAT and ACT and writing numerous, what seemed like long, college application essays, as well as researching multiple financial aid avenues.  I am from the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas and didn’t grow up supporting one particular school; I never really fell in love with any of the Texas universities.

At 18 years old, I had no idea where I wanted to attend college, but I knew I wanted it to be far enough away from home that I was able to gain independence and learn some lessons for myself.

In October of 2012, my mom suggested visiting Ole Miss: ”You know, that school from ‘The Blindside,’” she said.  I figured “why not?” so the two of us visited campus for the Ole Miss versus Alabama football game where we, through connections, sat on row three of the 50 yard line.

Talk about an overwhelming experience!  The grove was lined with so many red and blue tents and thousands of people drinking, talking and laughing.  The stadium was packed, body to body, even after halftime when the Rebels were getting destroyed by the Crimson Tide.  I wore a red dress and tan wedges, fitting in with the dressed up culture.  But by the third quarter, my feet were blistered, my stomach growling and I was exhausted.  I looked at my mom and said, “Let’s go eat, go to bed and go home.  Ole Miss is not the school for me.”

Robert Nkemdiche, D.J. Jones, Bryan Jones? Ole Miss’ newest commit believes he’s ‘up next’

Last week, Ole Miss defensive line coach Chris Kiffin walked through the doors at Madison Prep Academy. He didn’t ask for head football coach Michael Roach.

Instead, he asked for Bryan Jones.

A subtle, yet powerful move, Kiffin requesting to see the nation’s No. 6 strong-side defensive end carried a lot of weight — so much so that it led to Jones committing just a few days later.

The four-star prospect reported 33 offers, but the consistency of communication from the Ole Miss coaching staff since February was second to none.

That made a world of difference when Jones decided to end his recruitment late this weekend.
