WINKLE to give ‘last lecture’ before retirement Oxford BY BRACEY HARRIS

PHILLIP WALLER | The Daily Mississippian

John Winkle cuts cake at a retirement ceremony Wednesday.

John Winkle III, professor of political science, will deliver the Mortar Board’s inaugural “Last Lecture” at 4 p.m. Friday. The event has a special meaning for the professor: It will be the last lecture he gives before retirement. When he began teaching in August 1974, little more than a decade had passed since James Meredith’s integration of Ole Miss. Yet he saw the university as a place of potential. Reflecting on his time here, he is glad to have seen this come to fruition. “I have witnessed a transformation in the university over the years that I have been here. I’ve witnessed it in the caliber of students who attend and the faculty who teach and do research here. I’ve witnessed it in just the general climate of the univer-

sity. There seems to be such a commitment now to the values that we should all hold dear,” Winkle said. In the nearly four decades that have passed since he first stepped on campus, he has impacted countless students both as a professor and as the faculty adviser to the mock trial team. He has also been an integral part of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College and the honors program before it, serving as an adviser to several theses and instructing in Honors 101 and 102, in addition to special seminars. “John is the consummate citizen scholar, and he teaches them (honors students) to be a great academic and to engage the world about us,” said Douglass SullivanGonzález, dean of the honors college. In 1980, Winkle was honSee WINKLE, PAGE 9

historical marker gets facelift BY Charlotte Mona Roi

A new historical marker has been installed in front of Oxford City Hall to replace the 1951 plaque. The new marker details the history of Oxford since the city was chartered in 1836, mentioning well-known locals such as writer John Grisham. According to Andy Mullins, chief of staff to the chancellor, the original plaque did not sufficiently detail the history of Oxford and was in bad shape. Mullins made the suggestion to Oxford Mayor Pat PatSee FACELIFT, PAGE 4


Expectations have been raised, but the goals remain the same as athletics director Ross Bjork reflects on the 2012-13 athletic year and looks ahead to 2013-14. Last year’s message centered on building confidence and building resources. This year, the message is centered on continuing to grow the program. “I don’t know how many games we can win, or we will win; no one knows that, but I know what our goals are,” Bjork said. “Our goals are to be the best and win championships. And in between the foundation and winning championships, we have got to continue to perform at our highest level. That’s what the expectations are all about. They are performing at the highest level possible and continuing to build.” Michael Thompson, senior


associated athletics director for communications and marketing, described this past year as “getting shot out of a cannon, and we’re on a great trajectory.” He said he felt like something shifted in the Egg Bowl but, like Bjork, said it was more about the process and the journey than the results themselves, on and off the field. “I don’t know if there’s one or two singular moments,” Thompson said. “To me, it’s like pebbles in the bucket. You keep putting them in, and then the thing gets pretty heavy. It’s so many little things that add up to what feels like a positive and exciting trajectory and where we all know where we’re headed.” First-year head football coach Hugh Freeze led a five-win turnaround and guided the Rebels to a bowl game for the first time in three years, then the men’s basketball program ended a 10-year NCAA tournament drought with an SEC

tournament championship run. The baseball, men’s tennis and men’s track and field programs are all ranked in the top 25 and are preparing for NCAA championships later this spring. Bjork made two new hires in track and field head coach Brian O’Neal and women’s basketball head coach Matt Insell. On the heels of his SEC tournament championship and NCAA tournament appearance, men’s basketball head coach Andy Kennedy’s contract was extended to run through 2017, which includes a base salary of $1.8 million. The university will break ground on a new basketball arena in 2014, and it remains scheduled to open for the 2015-16 season, according to Bjork. “It’s a big boost,” Bjork said of the men’s basketball season. “It shows that we can compete on a national level. It shows that we can win an SEC championSee FOUNDATION, PAGE 10

Not a goodbye, my last column

This is probably my last column for The Daily Mississippian. I can’t believe how quickly time flies. I remember how I started my journey from China two years ago, the first day I got to Oxford and the first time I went to my journalism school, my Farley Hall. I remember how excited I was when I saw the dean, the assistant dean, the professors and the classmates. At that time, I was the only Chinese student — for that matter, the only Asian student in the journalism school. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to study here. I learned

up very lonely. I prayed that I could have big brothers or big sisters every day. My prayers have been answered. My classmates have become my siblings. We are a family. They helped and protected me. All my professors paid attention to me. I never got that much encouragement in China. These have been the happiest two years in my entire school life. I learned from things that weren’t professors or classmates, as well. I had to move several times because I couldn’t find a place to live the first week. I had to hitchhike to look for an apartment because I didn’t have a car. After visiting almost every leasing office, I finally found a place. However, I had to use my imperfect English to argue with the leasing office manager

about the dirtiness and roaches. I failed and had to clean the carpet and kill the roaches myself. The first paper of my first semester was 100 pages, singlespaced. I blacked out, and almost passed out. Fortunately, all the students negotiated with the professor a week after, to make it a 20 pages, single-spaced paper, but it was still a huge ordeal for me. At that time, I didn’t even know how to write an English paper. I had to go to the writing center to ask for help. I was lucky. The student who helped me in the writing center was a Chinese Flagship program student. He had visited China twice. This made the learning process much easier when I couldn’t understand his English. He could speak Chinese to me. I still remember my very first See LAST, PAGE 3

about the United States from a Southern perspective. I learned about American music by listening to the blues in Clarksdale. I learned about Elvis Presley by going to Graceland. I learned about King Cotton by visiting the Delta. I learned that there is a different definition of poor in the United States than in China. I learned about Martin Luther King Jr. from the Civil War Museum. I learned about football by being an Ole Miss Rebel. My classmates took me to the civil war museum to learn about Southern history. They took me to the Cozy Corner to taste barbecue, banana pudding and sweet tea. They took me to the Memphis Zoo to see the panda and China section to make me less homesick.

On April 17, the U.S. Senate voted down an amendment to a bill that would have extended background checks on firearm purchases to close a supposed loophole with gun shows. The liberal outcry that followed filled the media for days. As I read through the reactions, I noticed a few numbers and statistics that kept popping up, so I decided to look into each one. For starters, proponents of the amendment, such as the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, repeatedly claimed that between 25 percent and 50 percent of sellers at a gun show are not federally licensed. Having never been to a gun show myself, I did not know whether or not that could be true. So, I followed the link to the study, only to find out that T H E D A I LY

the study included all vendors at a gun show, not just vendors that were selling firearms. This meant that vendors that were selling concessions, souvenirs or just ammo were counted as gun show vendors. When those were removed, fewer than 2 percent of the vendors actually selling firearms were unlicensed, usually individuals who were selling from a collection. Another number that was consistently thrown about was that 90 percent of Americans favored the amendment. I never saw any source to those numbers, but I did find a public opinion survey that asked responders if they favored background checks in general. Ninety percent said they did favor background checks. However, the survey did not go any further than a general question. While looking for public opinion surveys about the amendment specifically, I came across multiple surveys that tell a completely different story. When asked how they

felt about the amendment not passing the Senate, only 47 percent of respondents were either disappointed or angry, according to the Pew Research Center. Additionally, in a CNN poll conducted prior to the Senate vote, only 53 percent of respondents said that they favored stricter gun control laws. A Fox News poll, also conducted prior to the vote, asked respondents what they felt was most likely to reduce gun violence. Only 26 percent of respondents answered with stricter gun control laws. Beyond the use of faulty numbers, though, quite a few of those angry about the outcome of the vote chose to use an emotional appeal, claiming that voting against the amendment was equivalent to a slap in the face of gun crime victims, such as the children and families affected by the Newtown shooting. What is lacking with this argument is a causal link between the supposed loophole and the Newtown shooting that simply

is not there. Fewer than 2 percent of individuals incarcerated for a firearm-related crime claim to have purchased their firearm at a gun show. Other surveys and studies, including a number conducted by the FBI and ATF, have found the link between gun shows and gun crimes to be minimal or statistically irrelevant. Unfortunately, those findings do not stand in the way of those in favor of stricter gun control. Personally, I wish would they focus their time more on curbing gun violence through means that have been proven effective, such as educational and preventive means, rather than spending their time making it difficult to legally obtain a firearm. After all, two things hold true. First, new laws do not deter those who break laws. Second, guns do not kill people, the person pulling the trigger does.

Don’t forget to say thank you Letter to the Editor

BY Lexi Thoman

Here we are again, at the end of another academic semester. In many ways, it is had to believe that this is my last. So many people have touched my life over my four years at Ole Miss — ­ friends, acquaintances, classmates and coworkers; the list goes on and on. But for most seniors who are at the finish line of their undergraduate education, it is easy to forget the little things, like saying, “Thank you,� to those who deserve it. At the Phi Beta Kappa induction ceremony, the keynote speaker and recently retired Dr. Colby Kullman emphasized this point to the audience gathered in the Paris-Yates Chapel. He said that throughout his long career in academia as an esteemed professor of English, he wrote countless letters of recommendation for his students. But it was all too often, he said, that the students would fail to extend a simple “thank you� after the fact and let him know how the interview, job or graduate school application went. Dr. Kullman’s words left an impression on me because I, too, am guilty. Out of all of the people who have impacted my life at Ole Miss, there are certain professors and advisers who deserve special recognition for all that they have done for me, whether it is writing letters of recommendation, offering academic and career advice, or just providing general counsel. Although in most cases I have been diligent about thanking my professors and telling hem how an application or interview turned out, I know that it is more

than likely that a few have fallen though the cracks. As students, we are in control of our own futures. But without the mentorship and guidance of our professors and advisers, most of us would not be as successful as we are today. Sometimes the smallest comment or slightest nudge in the right direction is all it takes to make a huge difference. So instead of writing the typical farewell column that focuses on my own academic career at Ole Miss or my two years on staff as an opinion columnist for The Daily Mississippian, I leave you all with this final message: never forget to say, “Thank you.� A quick email or stop in their office is all it takes to leave a lasting impression and set you apart from the thousands of other graduates in the Class of 2013. Humility may be a fading art in our generation, but no one should be above giving thanks to those who deserve it. Finally, thank you, my Ole Miss family, for all that you have given me in the past four years. Even as I prepare to move hundreds of miles away for my next step in life, I know that a part of my heart will always be in Oxford. Lexi Thoman is a senior international studies and Spanish doublemajor from St. Louis, Mo.

Dear Editor, Whereas Williamson claims that she is tired of “picking up a copy of The DM and seeing people outraged about absolutely inane topics,� I am admittedly tired of something else. I am tired of apologizing. I am tired of being under the magnifying glass. I am tired of making overt gestures of political correctness to try and justify my university and my character as an extension of that university.

important events in the world than the preservation of these traditions. However, these traditions are engrained in the fabric of this university and its supporters, including me, and I simply do not believe that taking these customs away will signify any real progress. In this age of sickeningly over-the-top political correctness, the campaign against traditions carries deeper implications of these empty crusades for tolerant sensitivity. So, you’re right, Alexandra. We and our university do need to accomplish something real.

held a candlelight vigil of reconciliation the following night. Ultimately, the gesture served its purpose – an unsatisfactory puppet show of racial unity that satiated the media’s cravings for a wholesome conclusion to this torrid affair of divisive politics and archetypal Mississippian racism. In the sheer superficiality of these actions is where I find my problems with the removal of our traditions. I feel as though our university is only aggravating these tensions by attempting to jump through hoops to please the national media and this generalized population of offended students.

The members of the committee represented a variety of Oxonians, including University of Mississippi history professor emeritus David Sansing, former UM chancellor Robert Khayat and Neilson’s Department Store owner Will Lewis. Committee members admitted they struggled to find the best way to describe Oxford in limited words. The state archives department further prolonged the process after the committee sent the information to the department for approval. “The state wanted to change too much of the wording,” Mullins said. “They always

The new marker does not have the magnolia flower on top of the sign, which indicates it is a state sign. Instead, the Oxford emblem appears, showing that the city funded and produced this sign. “I am very satisfied with the quality of the information,” said Gerald Walton, local historian and retired UM provost. “It is extremely difficult to say in a very few number of words the history of Oxford, but we came to a compromise.”

Here’s to the laughs BY Josh Clark

I was sitting in the back of my high school senior English class doodling in the margins of my notes when my teacher called on me. I did not hear her. She proceeded to call me out in front of the class with several remarks, the most notable of which was: “Doodling is never going to take you anywhere.” I remember assuring her that the story of the knight from “The Canterbury Tales” would never take me anywhere either. As I sat out in the hallway, I put no thought into whether or not one of our statements would become increasingly ironic. With that being said, I never intended to be a cartoonist and especially not for four years. Much like Jennifer Lawrence on her way to receive an Oscar, I stumbled right into it. When I arrived at The University of Mississippi, my older brother was the news editor for the Daily Mississippian, and he told me they needed a cartoonist. I was not enthused about the idea, but eventually I agreed to give it a try. Four years, five awards and 320 cartoons later I am graduating with a business management degree and leaving for the real world. The years passed so fast, and it seemed like just yesterday I was the long-haired freshman whose mug shot in the Daily Mississippian showed me doing a bad rendition of Tom Cruise sliding across the floor in “Risky Business” (seriously, underwear and all). I must admit that my views about being the cartoonist have been fickle over the years, and I swore I was go-

ing to quit at least a hundred times. Those threats proved to be as empty as Houston Nutt’s resume. Now, as graduation approaches, I realize that I am going to miss cartooning about politicians, student athletes and my professors. I will miss drawing Obama’s ears and Dan Mullen’s blank expression. I will miss throwing gas on the fire that is the mascot debate. I will miss trying to make a cartoon of some type of inspiration after a national or local tragedy. I will miss spending my Sunday evenings in the fall cartooning about the previous day’s football game. I will miss my friends asking for a cameo in my cartoons. Perhaps most of all I will miss opening the front page of The Daily Mississippian and seeing my work. However, I did not write my first-ever column to become nostalgic or even to attempt to make you laugh one last time. I wrote this column to thank you. Thank you for reading my comics, for giving me good suggestions for my next cartoon, for giving me really bad suggestions for my next cartoon, for telling me which ones were your favorites, for laughing with me, for bearing with me through the days with no news and even for sending spiteful letters to the editor. I have thoroughly enjoyed it all and consider myself blessed for the experience. I hope that you did not take the satire or jokes too seriously and that I was able to make you laugh. That is all I ever intended to do.

ored with the Elsie M. Hood Outstanding Teacher award, which recognizes excellence both in and outside of the classroom. “I love the classroom; the interaction with students energizes me,” Winkle said. “I believe that teaching is all about intellectual awakening, and what we as faculty do is to provide the spark.” Regardless of his environment, Winkle said he sees every class he teaches as an opportunity to impact his pupils. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a constitutional class with 70 students or an honors college seminar. I’m there to help students tap their own potential and see their own possibilities,” Winkle said. “I believe in students or I wouldn’t be doing what I do.” Chancellor Dan Jones said he sees Winkle as a fixture of the Ole Miss academic culture. “Dr. Winkle represents all that is special about The University of Mississippi,” Jones said. “He has invested his entire career here. A dedicated professor who loves students

and gives a lifetime of service here in one place — that is part of the magic of our university.” Winkle admitted that when he first started teaching, he would not have guessed that he would have remained so long. In fact, he accepted the opportunity to serve as a visiting professor twice, once at Emory in 1990 and 1991, and once at West Point in 1999. He speaks fondly of his time at both and considers it a great experience. Yet he returned. He credits his work and outside life environments as well as the difference that he could make in his students’ lives for leading him to call Taylor, Miss., home. Benjamin McMurtray, a third-year UM law student, is one of those students. He has taken four classes with Winkle and worked with him on the mock trial team. As it turns out, he already had a connection with the professor. Winkle had instructed McMurtray’s mother during her time at Ole Miss. Eight years after their first meeting, he credits Winkle with his decision to apply for law school. McMurtray originally planned to go into teaching but said Winkle’s encourage-

ment made him reconsider law. “I had very poor grades in undergraduate, but he (Winkle) didn’t let that cloud his view of me. I think he had faith that I would be a better student in law school,” McMurtray said. “For the last three years, I’ve really been trying to make him not regret that faith.” It seems he did not. On Saturday, McMurtray will graduate in the top of his law class. Although the reputation of his constitutional law classes precedes him, so does his caring nature for students, which has led many to rise to the intellectual challenge. McMurtray recalled a friend who was considering taking Winkle’s class. He knew he would most likely lose his 4.0 GPA if he took the class, but chose to enroll anyway. According to McMurtray, it was worth it. When his colleagues speak about what makes him a great professor, one sentiment is repeated — his love for instructing students. So great is his passion, it would seem that he has taken a vow of teaching “in sickness and in health.” He grins when recalling one of his favorite memories in the classroom. Stricken with


laryngitis, he decided not to cancel class but rather to give a silent lecture on warrantless searches. He pantomimed police officers inspecting vehicles and motioned for students to participate as well. Although future students will not have the opportunity to take his classes, they will be influenced by his actions in ways of which they may not even be aware. When the Ole Miss Class of 2017 stands to recite the creed at orientation, they will read words made possible through his position as the co-chair of the Ole Miss Creed committee. Further, the student who finds his or her voice through mock trial owes the opportunity to a man who has given countless hours of dedication to keeping the program alive. Despite once thinking of law and his vast knowledge of the subject, Winkle is glad about his chosen path of teaching. “Many of my friends in D.C. say you should have been a lawyer, and I say ‘No, I’ve found what I love, and it’s teaching.’ I think I could have done well in law, but I don’t know if my heart would have been there,” Winkle said.

matter what because it’s about Ole Miss, it’s about athletics, it’s about foundation, and everyone knows what that means, and that means a way to give,” Bjork said. “The response has been terrific, and it gives you a new way to think about Ole Miss athletics, about being involved.” Since the rebranding, 1,200 new members have joined the foundation, and 34,000 football season tickets have been sold. “Off the field, I’m really pleased with the response of confidence and commitment to our standpoint where people see that, they get excited about that, and they get emotional about that,” Bjork said. “I see people tear up as they talk to us about what we’re building and how we’re doing it, and the work ethic and the attitude and the effort that we’re putting forward. That makes you feel good that there is a purpose behind all of this.” A lot of that excitement comes from the extensive national exposure Ole Miss received in the past year. From the Egg Bowl

victory and the BBVA Compass Bowl to National Signing Day and the SEC and NCAA tournament runs, Bjork said that you can’t put a price tag on all that exposure, and it extends beyond athletics. “I think that’s what everybody is trying to do at Ole Miss, to change how people view the university, not just athletics, but academically, socially and everything,” Bjork said. “I think what athletics can do, our role, is provide a marketing vehicle for the institution. I think it means a great deal to put us on a relevant national stage to continue to attract students, to continue to attract donors, to continue to attract people who want to invest in Ole Miss, in whatever way they can. We are seeing that in admission application, in fundraising and in athletics.” Thompson said, as an athletics department, they’re aware of the increased expectations that come with this past year’s onfield success and look to carry momentum into next year. “We’re never going to settle,”

Thompson said. “I think that’s where you get really far behind and not really know it. You just wake up one day and all of a sudden, maybe the teams aren’t winning as much, and a big chunk of your fan base is eroded.” Looking back on his first year in Oxford, Bjork said his plan that he laid out in his introductory press conference has not changed. He said the biggest challenge was the volume of communication and media scrutiny of athletics programs on the biggest stage in college athletics, the Southeastern Conference. “I did not realize how deep the passion was, and you can’t really measure that when you’re in an interview situation,” Bjork said. “When you start right away, you don’t really measure that because you don’t have a sense of it.” Bjork said that now that he’s been here a year, he really senses just how deep the passion is for this program.

Cantillo put the first run on the board for the Rebels in the bottom of the first when she stole home. Cantillo scored two more runs throughout the game and went 2-for-2 at the plate. Ole Miss kept the runs coming when freshman shortstop Haley Culley stole home. Senior left fielder Brittany Broome hit a triple to send Cantillo home, giving the Rebels a 3-0 lead. Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown stood out at the plate hitting a two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth.

GAME ONE: OLE MISS 8, ALCORN STATE 0 After a tough year in the Southeastern Conference, the Ole Miss softball team ended its season on a positive note with a doubleheader shutout of Alcorn State. The Lady Rebels (24-31) jumped out early, scoring a

run in each of the five innings on their way to an 8-0 win over the Lady Braves (12-36). Junior pitcher Carly Hummel (13-16) started in the circle for the Rebels and picked up the the win, throwing a perfect three innings. In the fourth inning, sophomore Lauren Lindsey stepped in and gave up just one hit in the final two frames. Junior center fielder R.T.

GAME TWO: OLE MISS 10, ALCORN STATE 1 Senior Erinn Jayjohn pitched her last game of college ball in the second game of the doubleheader. Jayjohn (3-3) gave up one run on four hits in four innings of work to lead Ole Miss (25-31) to a 10-1 win over Alcorn State (12-37). “I’m just really proud of how hard they’ve worked and how hard they’ve tried to lead,” head coach Windy Thees said of the seniors playing their last game. “They’ve all got different roads ahead of them with

their life, and I just want to wish them the best. They’re great kids.” Offensively, the Rebels again came out swinging in the bottom of the first when sophomore third baseman Allison Brown hit an RBI triple. Brown then took home on an Alcorn State error to put the second run of the game on the board. Senior catcher Kelly Nolan scored for Ole Miss in the bottom of the second on freshman right fielder Bri Payne’s RBI double. The Lady Rebels scored in each of the first four innings, including a six-run third that was highlighted by sophomore designated player Lauren Lindsey’s grand slam, which gave the Rebels a 9-1 lead. “The pitcher was throwing me inside,” Lindsey said. “Inside’s my favorite pitch, and I don’t get it much, so I knew when I got it I had to take it. “It was my first actual home run. Words can’t explain it. You’re just full of happiness, you know, in awe that you can actually do something like that, that God gives you that ability.”

Picked Up By NFL Teams Three more Ole Miss Rebels have been picked up by NFL teams as rookie free agents, following the 2013 NFL Draft. E.J. Epperson is with the Kansas City Chiefs, Wesley Pendleton with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Ferbia Allen with the Miami Dolphins.

Rebels rally late, beat saint louis in extra innings

QUENTIN WINSTINE | The Daily Mississippian

Sophomore center fielder Auston Bousfield scores the tying run in the ninth inning Wednesday against Saint Louis.


It took extra innings, but No. 24 Ole Miss was able to pull past nonconference foe Saint Louis last night 8-7 behind a walk-off single from junior Austin Anderson. The Rebels (32-14) fell behind early after giving up four runs in the first inning, but they were able to rally with a two-run ninth to force extra innings.

“It’s an amazing game,” Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco said. “We start off the first inning, and they put together an inning offensively as good of an inning we’ve faced all year long. You’ve got to credit Saint Louis. Every time they’ve been here, they’ve been very offensive.” Saint Louis got things started in the first with an RBI double from first baseman Mike Vigliarolo before catcher Grant Nel-

son smashed a three-run home run to push the lead to 4-0. Ole Miss starter Josh Laxer, a sophomore right-hander, was relieved after only recording two outs in favor of sophomore righthander Scott Weathersby. The Hattiesburg native would end up going 4.1 innings and only giving up two hits in relief.

The Billikens added two runs in the top half of the eighth on RBI singles from center fielder Danny Brennan and second baseman Mike Levine to push the lead to 6-3. The safety cushion didn’t last long though when the Rebels answered with two in the bottom of the same inning on a sacrifice fly from Perdzock and an RBI single from Preston Overbey. However, junior Lance Wilson, who was in as a pinch runner, was tagged out at the plate to keep the Billikens up by a run. Saint Louis continued to fight offensively in the top of the ninth and scored one run on a bases-loaded walk, but couldn’t get anything else, stranding the bases loaded. They took a 7-5 lead into the ninth, but the pesky Rebels kept chipping away.

“Proud of the way Weathersby came in and put a bunch of zeroes up,” Bianco said. “He kept them at bay and gave us a shot.” Ole Miss would chip away at the four-run deficit when it got on the board with two runs in the bottom half of the third. Senior left fielder Tanner Mathis recorded an RBI single, and junior shortstop Austin Anderson added a sacrifice fly to cut the lead in half. Freshman designated hitter Holt Perdzock would then pull the Rebels within one in the bottom of the sixth with an RBI groundout, but Saint Louis would answer quickly.

Junior catcher Stuart Turner, who was 4-for-5 with two RBIs on the night, tied things up in the bottom of the ninth with a two-run single before Anderson was tagged out at the plate to force extra innings. In the eleventh, Mathis and Bousfield reached on a single and fielder’s choice, respectively. Then, Anderson won the game for the Rebels on a walkoff single. On the play, Anderson was looking to bunt, but recognized a defensive shift and pulled back and swung away. “Coach Bianco and (Cliff) Godwin always told us if they try to run the wheel play then pull back, stay short and try to hit something on the ground,” Anderson said. “Ironically, I didn’t hit it on the ground, but it found a hole, and it was good to see it drop and get a walk-off victory.”
