Ole Miss Student Athletes Edie and Forbus Named Who’s Who

9252238.jpgThe academic accolades continue to roll in for Ole Miss student-athletes as volleyball player Aubrey Edie and soccer player Addie Forbus were chosen to represent the University of Mississippi in the 2016-17 class of Who’s Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges. The student-athletes were honored with an induction ceremony Friday afternoon at the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts.
Each year the University of Mississippi, along with various other colleges and universities, recognize those students who have made considerable contributions to their campus in a variety of areas, including scholarship, leadership and student activities.
“Aubrey and Addie are standout student-athletes who have accomplished so much in the classroom as well as who have shown their heart for service,” senior associate athletics director for student-athlete development Derek Cowherd said. “We are so very proud that they have been recognized as part of the 2017 Who’s Who class at the University of Mississippi.”
Edie has received several academic accolades over the last several days, including being awarded a Taylor Medal, which is the highest academic accolade at the University of Mississippi and is awarded to no greater than one percent of the student body. Additionally, Edie was awarded a NCAA postgraduate scholarship to continue her education.
Forbus has also received numerous academic accolades throughout her decorated career.
“Obviously Addie was one of the all-time soccer greats throughout her time here. She was not only a superstar on the field, but her drive and work ethic were evident in the classroom as well, making her a leader both on and off the field of play,” said head soccer coach Matt Mott. “Addie is well deserving of this prestigious honor, and we’re excited for her to receive it and represent Ole Miss Soccer.”

Rebels Show Promise In Grove Bowl As Spring Practice Ends

With the conclusion of Saturday’s Grove Bowl, spring practice has come to an end. For all the talk of bowl bans and NCAA investigation results, seeing some live football was a welcomed change in Oxford.
The 15-practice period saw the installation of new systems from new coordinators on both sides of the ball, and the product on the field today was clearly a work in progress. Led by Shea Patterson, the offense won the day as they were able to uncork a few big plays on the defense. Patterson finished the day with an impressive stat line, going 21 of 30 for 341 yards with 2 TDs.
It’s easy for a quarterback to be efficient when they have an immense amount of talent at the receiver position, which the Rebels clearly have. Rising sophomore A.J. Brown finished the day with 133 yards on 5 catches and a TD. Brown’s TD came on a quick slant, and Brown did the rest. Spinning his way out of DB Myles Hartsfield’s arms and running free. D.K. Metcalf silenced any questions about any lingering pain from his foot injury with 98 yards and a TD. Van Jefferson’s role will be one to watch out for, as the speedy receiver continued to get open and finished the day over 100 yards and had a 74-yard TD from backup QB Jordan Ta’amu. Markell Pack has earned rave reviews for the improvements he’s made this spring and earned that praise today, with 3 catches for 80 yards.
