With the Grove Bowl set for Saturday April 8, the Ole Miss Rebels continue Spring Practice. Coach Freeze is pleased with his team’s progress but sees some areas for improvement.
Breeland Speaks talked about his disappointing season in 2016, and how he is ready for a bounceback year. WR Van Jefferson discussed how the receiving corps is adapting to the new system under WR coach Jacob Peeler. OL Jordan Sims spoke about what it’s like going against the revamped Rebel defense each day in practice.

Hugh Freeze
“Loved the energy of the defense. They’re flying to the football and playing physical…I know the defense got better today.”

Breeland Speaks
“They demand more, Coach Roach demands work. When we go out there we’re going to all day. We’re going to work until the last whistle blows.”

Van Jefferson
“You have A.J., Metcalf, Pack, Ledge, Nixon all the guys in that group can win one on one’s so every defense we face there’s going to be some problems.”

Jordan Sims
It’s good on good, best on best it does nothing but get us ready to go against the other DL we’ll go against. We’re getting better each and every day and we see it as an opportunity heading into practice.”
