Ole Miss Continues Fall Camp

The Ole Miss football team returned to the practice field on Monday to prepare for the upcoming season, following a scrimmage over the weekend.

Following practice, head coach Lane Kiffin met with the media after reviewing film from the scrimmage.

“It was kind of in the middle of everything, whether it was offense or defense of our position groups,” Kiffin said. “We’re getting excited about some things and nervous about others, but we tackled the entire time.”

Kiffin added that the team doesn’t always do that in scrimmages, but with question marks on all the new players it offered a live situation to put them in.

The Rebels have a good week ahead of them with a scrimmage before classes start up on Aug. 22. Ole Miss will hold its second scrimmage on Saturday.

Ole Miss has brought in some players to play on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.

“I think for the first time here we have some depth in the defensive line,” Kiffin said. “Offensively we have pieces that have come together well so far. A lot of new parts are doing good things.”

On the receiving core, Ole Miss senior Dannis Jackson returns to the gridiron.

“He is one of the players we had and he made some plays last year,” Kiffin said. “He continues to step up. Has a good shot to play for us.”

Ole Miss hosts Troy to open the 2022 season on Sept. 3 inside the Vaught.
