Despite the cloud of uncertainty hanging over the Ole Miss football program as a multi-year NCAA investigation appears to be nearing an end, there is much reason for Rebel fans to be excited with the kickoff to a new season just 88 days away. Here are five reasons Rebel fans should smile their way through these hot summer months…

1. Your Heisman Candidate

Yes, Ole Miss has a legitimate preseason contender for the Heisman Trophy. His name is Chad Kelly and he plays the Heisman darling position of quarterback in an offense designed to generate huge passing numbers. Kelly threw for 4,042 yards and 31 touchdowns last season, while rushing for 500 and 10 scores. Of course, winning is often everything in the minds of Heisman voters and Kelly has an opportunity to lead Ole Miss to some big wins early and perhaps step out as the early front runner. We believe he is the best college quarterback in America.

Ole Miss senior golfer Forrest Gamble was selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Division I Men’s At-Large Team for the second year in a row, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Gamble is one of nine male student-athletes who have earned multiple Academic All-America citations. The Birmingham, Alabama native graduated in May with a 3.97 GPA with a degree in Physics. He has been named to the Chancellor’s list ever semester as a student at Ole Miss and was named to the SEC Academic Honor Rolls. Gamble is a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Omicron Delta Kappa honor societies. Gamble was inducted into the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges and participated in the Chancellor’s Leadership class.

The Birmingham, Alabama native was selected to the second team Academic All-America team after earning first-team CoSIDA Academic All-District honors last month. Gamble was named last month the 2016 H. Boyd McWhorter Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year last month and was the 2015 SEC Men’s Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Gamble finished in the top ten this year at the FAU Slomin Autism Invitational to lead the Rebels to a first place finish, firing a season-low round of 2-under par 69 in the opening round.  He finished in the top 20 at the Shoal Creek Invitational in his hometown of Birmingham last fall and paced the Rebels with two rounds of even-par 72 at the Old Waverly Collegiate Championship this April to help Ole Miss finish second.
