Recipients must also be of a high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university. The Rebels also earned Outstanding Team Academic honors from the GCAA after posting a 3.54 combined team GPA during the 2015-16 academic year.

Gamble, the 2016 SEC Boyd McWhorter Male Scholar-Athlete of the year,  graduated with a degree in Physics in May and will attend medical school at UAB this fall. He finished tied for tenth at the FAU Slomin Autism Invite this past spring and ended his senior season with a 74.42 stroke average.

West enters his senior season as a triple-major in Managerial Finance, Real Estate, and Banking and Finance.

Ole Miss is in the ending throes of a $43.5 million dollar athletic facility expansion phase, mostly which is associated with the bowling in of the north end zone at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

The good news is that all will be ready to roll in time for the Rebels’ home opener on Sept. 10 versus Wofford. The only project that won’t be completed by Ole Miss’ first home game will be the Lloyd Bell Tower to be located in the north end zone plaza with a scheduled completion date of April, 2017.

 

“Everything is on time and everything is under budget. That’s a good thing. It will be ready by Sept. 10,” Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork confirmed Tuesday night at a Rebel Road Trip event in Jackson, Miss.
