Mo O’Connor Named to SEC Community Service Team

Ole Miss senior forward Mo O’Connor was recognized by the Southeastern Conference for her contributions to her hometown community Wednesday morning as she was named to the 2022-23 SEC Community Service Team.

O’Connor participated in the Feed the Sip program during the fall of 2021 and spring of 2022, helping collect and donate over 900 non-perishable items for the Stronger Together initiative, which supports feeding elementary-aged children from Quitman and Tunica Counties. She also volunteered for RebelTHON to raise money for those children in need, in conjunction with the Children Miracle Network Hospitals.

The Oxford native donated her time to Book and Bears where she collected gently used books and teddy bears, which are given to the facilities workers on the university campus as a thank you for their service. She participated in College Football Playoff’s Extra Yard, which gave back to local teachers in the community with doughnuts as a small thank you. O’Connor also mentored and supported young soccer players on little league soccer teams during the offseason as a POC soccer coach.

O’Connor has also been getting it done on the field this season, leading the Rebel offensive attack. She has six goals and four assists for 16 total points on the year. O’Connor has also scored three game-winning goals, securing victories against Louisiana Tech, UCF, and Florida.

In a continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond the field of competition, the Southeastern Conference is once again highlighting a panel of athletes for its annual Community Service Team. All league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004.
