“I have benefited greatly by being an Ole Miss Rebel. My entire professional career has been guided by my association with Ole Miss and its staff and alumni. When I qualified for the PGA TOUR, the alumni were my sponsors and supporters, and every career move since has been with the help and influence of Ole Miss. I am eternally grateful and appreciative of all Ole Miss has done for me. And now my son is getting the same opportunity, as a member of the golf team. How can it get better than that?” - RANDY WATKINS Former Tournament Director of the PGA TOUR’s Viking Classic

“The years I spent at Ole Miss were a great learning experience for me as a person and a golfer. I feel I learned as many life lessons as I did about my golf game. The challenges of playing with and against the best players in the country taught me that if I wanted to become a professional golfer, I would have to set high goals for myself and work hard to achieve them. I am sure Coach Ross had his challenges with me, but his wisdom and persistence taught me to strive to be the player I had dreamed of being since I was a young junior golfer. Coach Ross had a great impact on me as a person and golfer, and I will always enjoy our friendship. Go Rebels!” - VANCE VEAZEY PGA Professional

“My experience at Ole Miss was absolutely incredible. What coach Ross has done to expand the program is phenomenal. From the expansion of the practice facilities to the new van. I had the time of my life at Ole Miss and would recommend it to anyone.” - CALLUM MACAULAY European Tour Professional

Ole Miss student-athletes not only have the opportunity to play in one of the best conferences in the nation, they also attend a university that is world-renowned for its academics. The Office of Student-Athlete Academic Support has made great strides in improving the environment for Ole Miss student-athletes. Numerous full-time academic counselors, learning specialists and tutors, and the $5 million FedEx Academic Support Center, completed in May 2007, provides the perfect environment for learning. Last year, Ole Miss men’s golf had more than its share of student-athletes named to the school’s various academic honor rolls, while placing two players on Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Rolls. With Ole Miss athletics taking its place among the best in the nation, the Student-Athlete Academic Support staff hopes that Ole Miss graduates of today have a great impact in the future of tomorrow.

Regarded as one of the world’s top sporting traditions, tailgating on football Saturdays at Ole Miss is one of those activities that every sports fan should take the opportunity to indulge in at some point in their life. Ten acres of lush green grass, watched over by majestic oak trees in the middle of the Ole Miss campus, are transformed from a tranquil picnic spot into tailgating paradise when thousands of football fans crowd into every corner of the land. Weaving through the myriad of red and blue tents, one is bound to encounter a few of the most extravagant set-ups in all of tailgating fine china, chandeliers, big-screen satellite TVs. Of course, many tents are a bit simpler, but the unique atmosphere still encourages sundresses and high heels for the ladies and coats and ties for the men. Food and drink are abundant. “Hotty Toddy” can always be heard chanted among the trees. Champions walk through it. There is nowhere else like it. It is ... The Grove.

Ross’ 15 years as a head coach in the SEC rank as the second most behind Florida coach Buddy Alexander (24 years).

ERNEST ROSS HEAD COACH | 16th SEASON | OLE MISS | 1974 In 15 seasons at Ole Miss, head coach Ernest Ross has led the Rebels to seven NCAA appearances, including a fourth place finish in 1985, the 1984 SEC Championship, 27 regular-season tournament titles and been named SEC Coach of the Year twice. In 2004, Ross returned to his alma mater and a program he once built to SEC and national prominence. After spending 16 years as the head professional at the Country Club of Jackson, Ross returned to his first love - coaching - and immediately set out to steer the Rebels back to the pinnacle of college golf. Since his return, the Rebels have made five consecutive NCAA Regional appearances, had eight players garner All-SEC honors and one make All-American. RECENT SUCCESS Last year, Ole Miss made its fifth consecutive NCAA Regional appearance as the Rebels competed in the East Regional in Blacksburg, Va. Joe David led the Rebels, tying for 10th at the regional. Jonathan Randolph ended his outstanding career earning All-SEC honors for the second consecutive year. The 2010 season saw the Rebels compete in the NCAA Southeast Regional in Alpharetta, Ga. Mississippi native Jonathan Randolph had a banner year on the course, becoming the ninth All-American in the history of the program and earning All-SEC first team honors. He ended the year ranked No. 6 in Golfweek. Randolph posted the lowest stroke average (70.44) in the SEC and in the history of Ole Miss men’s golf. In 2009, Ole Miss participated in the NCAA Central Regional in Bowling Green, Ky. They just missed out on advancing to the NCAA Finals, finishing sixth. Jonathan Randolph tied for seventh to lead the Rebels and earned 9 ALL-AMERICANS | 21 ALL-SEC SEC SELECTIONS

PING All-South Region honors along with freshman Joe David. David also earned All-SEC second team honors and made the SEC All-Freshman Team. Off the course, Stefan Strandlund earned Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) All-Scholar honors. In 2008, the Rebels qualified for the NCAA East Regional on the heels of capturing four tournament titles. Ole Miss made history on Oct. 23, 2007, winning the rainshortened Mason Rudolph Intercollegiate (for the second year in a row), to become the first team in Rebel history to win three consecutive golf tournaments. The streak began with the Memphis Intercollegiate, and then the Rebels won the Squire Creek Invitational. In the spring, the Rebels held off then No. 2 Georgia to capture the Linger-Longer Invitational at Reynolds Plantation. Jesse Speirs earned second team All-SEC honors and Jonathan Randolph made the SEC All-Freshman Team. A highlight in 2008, the Rebels hosted the first annual BancorpSouth Intercollegiate at Reunion Golf and Country Club. The tournament was a success, and this year’s field will feature another strong regional field. After a six-year absence from postseason play, Ross guided the Rebels to the 2007 NCAA East Regional and a fourth place finish at the SEC Championship. The team led the field after day one and ended up with their best finish in 19 years. Will Roebuck turned in the best showing for a Rebel at the SECs since 1996, with his fourth place effort. Callum Macaulay earned All-SEC honors and led the Rebels in stroke average. ROSS RETURNS Soon after Ross’ return in the fall of 2004 the Rebels enjoyed one of the biggest turnarounds in school history. The improvement over the course of just one

season was staggering and almost hard to believe. Just five months after finishing last at the SEC Championships, Ole Miss claimed its first tournament title since March 21, 1999, with a first-place effort (279-278-284-841) at the 15-team Raising Cane Classic in Hattiesburg, Miss. In Ross’ first season back, Jordan Dempsey registered one of the most successful five-week periods of any individual in school history. Dempsey closed out the fall season in 2004 with a nine-under-par 207 (69-69-69) at the University Club Intercollegiate after posting four straight top-five finishes -- fourth at the Raising Cane Classic, second at the Mason Rudolph Championships, a tie for second at the Memphis Intercollegiate and a tie for third at the Gary Koch/Cleveland Golf Intercollegiate. Dempsey did not stop there as he went on to earn All-SEC first team honors and was selected to play in the NCAA East Regional as an individual. He concluded the 2004-05 season with the lowest stroke average in the SEC at 71.47. In 2005-06, the Rebels won three tournaments, including the Squire Creek Invitational, the Magnolia Cup and the USA Spring Classic. BUILDING THE FOUNDATION A native Mississippian, Ross played for the Rebels in the 70s and later became the head coach in 1979. In his first stint with the Rebels (1979-87), Ross produced great results. After the Rebels finished ninth at the SEC Championships during his first season, Ross guided Ole Miss to a second-place effort in 1982 and the conference crown in 1984. Ross was named SEC Coach of the Year in both `82 and ‘84. OLEMISSSPORTS.COM | 15

The ‘85 campaign ended with a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. Ross also led the Rebels to 16 regularseason tournament titles during his first stint in Oxford. Several individual accomplishments were also seen during Ross’ first eight seasons at Ole Miss. Randy Watkins (1982), Dave Peege (1984 & 1985) and Darren Cole (1984 & 1985) earned All-America honors. Peege also picked up SEC Player of the Year accolades in 1984, while Peege and Cole were named Co-Players of the Year in 1985. PLAYERS ACHIEVE SUCCESS AFTER OLE MISS Many of Ross’ players have gone on to experience success in both the amateur and professional ranks. Vance Veazey, who played for Ross in the late 80s, earned his PGA TOUR card for 2010 after finishing among the top 25 on the Nationwide Tour in 2009. He won the first event (Panama Digicel Championship) of the year on the Nationwide Tour and posted three top-10 finishes. Callum Macaulay finished up his career at Ole Miss in 2007 and enjoyed a highly-successful amateur career before turning pro. Macaulay made it to the semifinals of the 2007 British Amateur, considered the top amateur tournament in Europe, and won his first ever national championship, capturing the 2008 Scottish Amateur. He won the Scottish Golf Order of Merit in 2007, and was ranked among the top 20 in the World Golf Amateur Rankings. In the fall of 2008, he helped lead Scotland to their first ever World Amateur Team Championship. Macaulay qualified for the 2009 European Tour and earned a career-best second-place finish at the Madeira Islands Open BPI, narrowly missing the win. Former and current Rebels have competed in the U.S. Amateur, including current senior Jonathan Randolph

and junior Joe David, who both qualified in 2009. Randolph advanced to match play. Chip Sullivan, the director of golf at Hanging Rock Golf Club in Salem, Va., won the 2007 PGA Club Professional National Championship and helped the United States reclaim the PGA Cup later that year. In the summer of 2008, he became the first reigning PGA Professional National Champion to compete in the Japan PGA Championship, where he tied for 18th. Sullivan has also competed in several PGA Tour events that season. Since turning professional in 1987, Sullivan has won more than 80 PGA-sanctioned events. Jordan Dempsey won his first pro title in 2007, claiming the NGA Hooter’s Buffalo Run Casino Classic. In 2008, Chris Rogers qualified for the PGA TOUR’s Stanford St. Jude (Memphis, Tenn.) and just missed making the cut. In May of 2009, Rogers captured the Walnut Creek Championship of the eGolf Professional Tour. Mississippi native Kyle Ellis earned his first professional victory in the summer of 2010, capturing the NGA Hooter’s Chattahoochee Hospice Classic. OTHER CAREER SUCCESS Ross’ experience extends beyond coaching, as he also has a great deal of experience in golf course management, having worked at several country clubs throughout the United States. Prior to his first appointment at Ole Miss, Ross was employed at the Grenada Country Club(Grenada, Miss.), the Country Club of Darien (Darien, Conn.) and the Leflore Country Club (Greenwood, Miss.). In between his coaching stints, Ross was the head professional at Tiger Point Golf and Country Club (Gulf Breeze, Fla.) for one year and the head pro at the Country Club of Jackson (Miss.) for 16 years. Ross is a four-time Mississippi PGA Player of the Year, a four-time Mississippi PGA Chapter Champion, a

A PLAYERS’ COACH Dave Peege Former PGA Touring Professional ... 1984, 1985 All-American ... 1984, 1985 SEC Player of the Year ... 1983 SEC Medalist ... 1982 SEC Freshman of the Year. “Coach Ross is the best college golf coach in the country. It takes time to build a program and there is no doubt in my mind that he will have the Rebel program back in the top 20. I always knew he cared about me. It’s been 23 years since I left Oxford, and I am still getting calls from him to make sure that me and my family are doing well. I could only hope that if my two sons play a sport on the college level that they have a coach half as good as Coach Ross.”

Chip Sullivan PGA Professional and Director of Golf at Hanging Rock Golf Club in Virginia ... 2007 PGA Professional National Champion ... Has won more than 80 PGA sanctioned events ... 1986 SEC Medalist ... 1986 All-SEC Selection. “My entire outlook on the game of golf, and the golfing lifestyle changed drastically after I met Coach Ross. Transferring to Ole Miss from the University of Houston, I was in the mindset that there was nothing in life more important than golf. Coach Ross quickly taught me that golf is a game of balance, and only when each area of my life is disciplined and in harmony, in addition to my hard work on the course, then would my game fall into place. It may have taken me awhile to fully understand his teachings, but now I credit a huge part of my golfing success, as well as my success as a husband and father, to him. My respect for Ernest Ross as a coach, as a fellow PGA Professional, and as a genuinely devoted human being, is unending.”

He is always searching for new ways to help his players become better golfers, students and young men. He has had a great impact on my life as he has helped teach me the value of hard work and dedication. He is a tremendous asset to Ole Miss and will always field a team that is competitive and representative of our fine University. I am proud now to call him my friend and also proud to encourage all young golfers and their parents to call Ole Miss home.”

Callum Macaulay European Tour professional ... All-SEC in 2007. “Coach Ross has done an amazing job. He’s got great ambition, and I think it’s carried over to the team and the facilities. He came here with a plan, he knew what he wanted to do, and he’s managed to do it. He’s a really positive person, and if he wants something done, that’s what he’ll do.”

He’s done a great job with all the facilities up here. When he was recruiting me, he was building a new driving range. He’s gotten us a new chipping area, putting area and a sprinter van. I got on board with someone who loved golf as much as I did and wanted us to get better. He’s doing everything he can to facilitate me getting better and moving on to the next level. It was the best fit for me.”

JACK O’KEEFE FILE

JACK O’KEEFE ASSISTANT COACH | 2nd SEASON | ARKANSAS When Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross was in search of a new assistant coach prior to last year, he wanted someone that could help take the team to the next level. He found that guy in Jack O’Keefe, who brought with him a wealth of experience as a player at the highest level, in addition to his coaching credentials. O’Keefe is in his second year with the program after coaching the University of Central Arkansas golf team from 2007-2010. In his first season with the Rebels, O’Keefe helped guide the team to its fifth consecutive NCAA Regional appearance. He helped coach All-American Jonathan Randolph to another All-SEC season. While at Central Arkansas, O’Keefe helped the Bears jump up in the rankings from 139th at the beginning of the 2009-10 season all the way to 63rd in the year end Golfweek poll. O’Keefe guided Central Arkansas to a runner-up finish in the Southland Conference in 2010 and placed all five players on the All-Southland Conference Team (the only team to have five players make All-Conference). During the last four seasons, O’Keefe’s teams won seven team tournaments (four in the 2009-10 season), and had six individual medalists. Prior to coaching at Central Arkansas, O’Keefe was the head golf professional at Hot Springs Country Club in Hot Springs, Ark. While at Hot Springs Country Club, O’Keefe directed over 200 tournaments annually and

also taught over 400 lessons each year.

ADMINISTRATION

DR. DANIEL W. JONES | CHANCELLOR

PETE BOONE | ATHLETICS DIRECTOR

From an early age, Dr. Daniel W. Jones knew his career aspirations revolved around medicine and leadership. And while a physician leading a comprehensive university isn’t a common arrangement, Jones’ appointment as the 16th chancellor of the University of Mississippi is no surprise to anyone familiar with his record of leadership and achievements at the UM Medical Center in Jackson and the American Heart Association. Jones became chancellor on July 1, 2009, and oversees the campuses in Oxford, Jackson, Southaven, Tupelo and Grenada. Vice chancellor for health affairs and dean of the School of Medicine since 2003, Jones served as the Medical Center’s chief executive officer, overseeing five schools and the health system. Under his leadership, UMMC restructured its clinical enterprise to create a more agile, market-responsive organization focused on quality, efficiency and clinical leadership. The work resulted in a turnaround in financial performance and selection as one of the Thomson Top 100 Hospitals in America. Jones’ leadership team also expanded the Medical Center’s commitment to minority scholarships, rural medicine and the elimination of health disparities. Enrollment of underrepresented medical students increased 80 percent in five years. They also led a campaign that raised $53 million, expanded the medical school’s class size from 100 students to 120 students per class and reorganized the medical faculty clinical practice plan from 17 individual practice groups to a single, unified one, facilitating more efficient management and improved patient care. Under his watch, the Medical Center’s research enterprise has been reinvigorated with completion of the Arthur C. Guyton Research Center, acquisition of funding for a research park and increased research funding. A native Mississippian, Jones graduated from Mississippi College in 1971, earned his M.D. in 1975 at UMMC and completed his residency in internal medicine there in 1978. He had a private practice in Laurel, then went to Korea as a medical missionary in 1985. He returned to the UM Medical Center as a faculty member in 1992 and was named the school’s Herbert G. Langford Professor of Medicine in 1998. He directed the hypertension division and led many clinical studies funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of health. He played a crucial role in the acquisition of funding from NHLBI to create the Jackson Heart Study and was its first principal investigator. As the only large scale study of cardiovascular risk factors in African-Americans, Jones had to overcome the understandable reluctance of African Americans to participate in research and to build consensus among the three participating institutions - Jackson State University, Tougaloo College and UMMC. Neither had ever collaborated in such a massive undertaking. The new chancellor began volunteering for the American Heart Association 20 years ago and became its national president in 2007-2008. He was one of the early voices in AHA leadership to call attention to the growing problem of childhood obesity and heart disease in women. He was AHA’s national spokesperson on high blood pressure. Jones is married to Lydia Channell Jones, also a Mississippi College graduate. They have two children, Jennifer Jones Flechas of Oxford and Jason Jones of Clinton.

In his 13 years as the University of Mississippi’s Director of Athletics, Pete Boone has overseen dramatic facility improvements across the athletics department, allowing Ole Miss student-athletes and teams to compete at the highest levels in the nation’s most competitive conference. Boone’s personal relationship with Ole Miss runs deep, beginning in 1968 when the Grenada, Miss., native first stepped on the Oxford campus as a center on the Rebel football team, playing first for legendary coach John Vaught and then coach Billy Kinard as he earned three letters (1970-72). During Boone’s 13 years as Director of Athletics, Ole Miss has experienced continued growth from adding sports to his overseeing in excess of $140 million in athletics improvements. A number of projects are currently in the final planning stages or recently completed as Ole Miss continues to meet the challenges of the 21st century both on and off the field of competition. Nearing completion is a $3 million renovation of the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center, site of many men’s and women’s NCAA Regionals and host of the 2012 Women’s SEC Tournament. Several major projects are on the horizon with the launching of the Forward Together campaign that includes plans for a new arena, a north end zone expansion of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and other projects. Under Boone’s watch, the athletics department remains committed to young men and women student-athletes and their parents, promising to provide a positive environment of support to help them achieve their maximum potential in their academic and athletic pursuits. The FedEx StudentAthlete Academic Support Center’s front-line technology and classroom environment provide Ole Miss student-athletes one of the best learning environments in the country. While Boone’s focus has been to provide student-athletes, coaches and administrative staff with every opportunity to succeed, he has represented Ole Miss and the Southeastern Conference on a number of regional and national committees. In August of 2008, Boone was elected Chairman of the SEC Athletics Directors Committee. Boone, a 1972 graduate of Ole Miss with a bachelor’s degree in banking and finance, is married to the former Scottye Howard of Grenada. The couple has two sons, Taylor and Lexie. Taylor is married to the former Laurel Joachim of Atlanta, Ga. Taylor and Laurel have two future Ole Miss Rebels -- a son, Morgan (9) and a daughter, Pharis Louise (4). Lexie is married to the former Kim Deuel of Binghamton, N.Y.

HISTORY AND RECORDS

ALL-AMERICANS CARY MIDDLECOFF • 1939

DARREN COLE • 1984, 1985

JON BARTLETT • 2000

Cary Middlecoff distinguished himself as the greatest golfer in Ole Miss history and one of the best the Mid-South has ever known. Middlecoff was Ole Miss’ first golf All-American in 1939. He entered the PGA Tour in 1947, and from 1947 to 1961, Middlecoff won more than 40 tour events and about $250,000. He finished runner-up on the money list four times. Middlecoff won the 1949 and 1956 U.S. Opens and the 1955 Masters. In 1974 Middlecoff was inducted into the PGA Hall of Fame. He became the 48th member of the PGA/World Golf Hall of Fame in 1986. After retiring from competition, Middlecoff spent 15 years as a network television golf commentator. Middlecoff died Sept. 1, 1998 of heart failure at the age of 77.

Darren Cole picked up honorable mention All-America honors in 1984 and made the second team in 1985. He was a member of the 1984 SEC Championship team as well as consecutive NCAA Teams in ‘84 and ‘85. Cole was the SEC Co-Player of the Year in 1985 with teammate Dave Peege. He earned AllSEC first team honors in 1984 and ‘85 and second team honors in 1986. He ranks first in the Ole Miss record books with 26 top-10 finishes in his career and second with 16 top-five showings. His 71.70 stroke average in the 1984-85 season ranks as the third best all-time.

Jon Bartlett spent two years with the Rebels in 1999 and 2000 and led the team to consecutive NCAA appearances. Bartlett earned honorable mention All-America honors in 2000 as well as All-SEC accolades. He finished the season with four top-five, eight top10 and 11 top-20 finishes. Bartlett advanced to the NCAA Championships in 2000 as an individual and shot a careerbest 66 in the second round on his way to a tie for 24th. He finished with a 71.77 stroke average for the season and ended the year ranked No. 29 by Golfweek.

LAN GOOCH • 1988 RANDY WATKINS • 1982 Randy Watkins enjoyed a fine career for the Rebels from 1980-83, earning honorable mention All-America status in 1982. He captured medalist honors in helping lead Ole Miss to a second-place finish at the SEC Championships in 1982. Watkins picked up first team All-SEC honors in 1982 and 1983. He is tied with four other players for the lowest three-round score in the history of Ole Miss men’s golf, and ranks second in tournament victories, with four. A former member of the PGA Tour, Watkins owns and operates two golf courses in Mississippi. He currently serves as Tournament Director for the Viking Classic (formerly the Southern Farm Bureau Invitational), the PGA Tour event in Mississippi.

Lan Gooch arrived at Ole Miss in the fall of 1985, and it wasn’t long before he became a part of history with the Rebel golf team. In his first year, the team finished fourth at the NCAA Championships. Gooch is one of 11 Rebels to compete in the NCAA Championships as an individual. An All-SEC selection in 1987 and 1988, Gooch was also named an Honorable Mention All-American following his senior campaign in 1988. That season, he also claimed medalist honors at the SEC Championship. Following his collegiate career, Gooch continued playing, qualifying for the PGA Tour in 1998. Gooch is currently the head pro at the Natchez Trace Golf Club in Saltillo, Miss.

BRIAN ROWELL • 1995 DAVE PEEGE • 1984, 1985 Dave Peege earned first team All-American honors in back-to-back years (198485), while helping lead the Rebels to unprecedented heights. As a sophomore in 1983, Peege was selected to the All-SEC first team and took medalist honors at the SEC Championships. In 1984 Peege helped lead the Rebels to the SEC Championship and the team’s first ever NCAA Championship appearance, while earning SEC Player of the Year honors along the way. His senior season, Peege was named SEC Co-Player of the year with teammate Darren Cole and helped lead the Rebels to their best finish (fourth) ever at the NCAA Championships. 42 | REBEL GOLF 2011-12

Brian Rowell lettered four years for the Rebels in the middle 90s, and had his best season in 1995, earning honorable mention All-America honors. He qualified for the NCAA East Regional and just missed making the NCAA Championships. Rowell, an All-SEC first-team selection, won one title and had seven top-five finishes that year while closing with a 72.52 stroke average. He followed up the ‘95 campaign with his second consecutive trip to the NCAA East Regional, concluding the season with five top-10 and seven top-20 finishes. Rowell earned All-SEC honors for the second year in a row after finishing as the runner-up at the SEC Championships.

JORDAN DEMPSEY • 2005 Jordan Dempsey played three years for the Rebels and turned in one of the finest seasons in Ole Miss history, earning honorable mention All-America honors in 2005. He finished that season with the lowest stroke average in the SEC at 71.47, which still ranks as the second lowest ever at Ole Miss. Dempsey, who earned All-SEC first team honors, qualified for the 2005 NCAA East Regional as an individual. He won his first ever professional title in 2007, capturing the NGA Hooter’s Tour Buffalo Run Classic in Miami, Okla.

JONATHAN RANDOLPH • 2010 Jonathan Randolph became the ninth All-American in the history of the program in 2010, earning first team honors from the Golf Coaches of America Association (GCAA) and Golfweek. He is the second first team AllAmerican in the program’s history. Randolph produced one of the best seasons in Ole Miss history, finishing with the lowest stroke average (70.44) in a season by a Rebel and ending the year ranked No. 6 nationally. He earned first team All-SEC honors and led the league in stroke average all season. Randolph won three times in 2010 and posted eight top-five finishes, including third at the SEC Championships and the NCAA East Regional. In addition, Randoph was selected to the All-Nicklaus Team and was a member of the winning United States Palmer Cup Team. He went 3-1-0 at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland in helping the U.S. reclaim the cup.

HISTORY AND RECORDS

CARY MIDDLECOFF Ole Miss Golf’s First All-American PGA/World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee Cary Middlecoff, a Memphis, Tenn., native, distinguished himself as the greatest golfer in Ole Miss history and one of the best the Mid-South has ever known. Middlecoff was Ole Miss’ first golf AllAmerican in 1939. Middlecoff earned his dental degrees and was part of the Army Dental Corps in World War II. During a military leave in 1945, the 23-year-old Army Lieutenant left his mark on the golfing world when he won the North-South Open in Pinehurst, N.C. He was the first and only amateur ever to win that event when it was part of the the PGA tour. After leaving the military at the rank of Captain, Middlecoff went to work in his father’s dental office in Memphis. He never intended to make a career out of professional golf, but his father, Dr. H.F. Middlecoff, encouraged him to make a living playing golf. He entered the PGA tour in 1947, and from 1947 to 1961, Middlecoff won more than 40 tour events and about $250,000. He finished runner-up on the money list four times. In his first season, Middlecoff won the Charlotte Open and collected $2,000, a huge paycheck for that era. Middlecoff went on to win $10,000 that year. The rest of the story is history. Middlecoff won the 1949 and 1956 U.S. Opens and the 1955 Masters. He was runner-up in the 1957 U.S. Open and finished second twice in the Masters, 1948 and 1959. Middlecoff just missed winning the 1955 PGA Championship as he was edged out by Doug Ford. Middlecoff’s best year came in 1955 when he won six titles (The Masters, Crosby, St. Petersburg, Western, Miller Open and Cavalcade of Golf) and was the second leading money earner. He also finished second on the money list in 1949, 1951 and 1952, captured the Vardon Trophy in 1956 with a 70.35 stroke average and competed on winning Ryder Cup teams in 1953, 1955 and 1959. In 1974, Middlecoff was inducted by the PGA of America (in conjunction with golf writers and a panel of other experts) into the PGA Hall of Fame. He became the 48th member of the PGA/World Golf Hall of Fame in 1986. Middlecoff was one of the first inductees into the PGA Hall of Fame along with Sam Snead, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen. His induction ceremonies were appropriately conducted at Pinehurst, N.C., the new home of the Golf Hall of Fame and the golf resort where he won his first professional tournament. In 1990, Middlecoff became a member of the Tennessee Golf Hall of Fame and in 1996 was selected to the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in 1987. After retiring from competition, Middlecoff spent 15 years as a network television golf commentator. Middlecoff died Sept. 1, 1998, of heart failure at age 77.

He was also a member of three winning Ryder Cup teams (1953, 33 and 59).

ATHLETICS SUPPORT

OLE MISS SPORTS MEDICINE Prevention. Treatment. Rehabilitation. Education. Those are the four primary phases of athletic training, and the Ole Miss Sports Medicine staff strives to fulfill all four areas when working with the student-athletes on a daily basis. “Our Athletic Trainers are allied healthcare professionals and we strive to provide quality healthcare based on the latest in medical research,” said Shannon Singletary, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Sports Medicine/Strength & Conditioning. “By Shannon Singletary doing this we hope to not only provide our athletes with a better Senior Associate AD chance of winning on the field, but also give them an opportunity to lead a healthy lifestyle.” Led by a medical director and a full-time director of musculoskeletal medicine, Ole Miss student-athletes are offered the best care possible by the Sports Medicine staff, which includes 10 full-time athletic trainers, three graduate assistants and several student assistants. The staff serves the student-athletes nearly around-the-clock and at numerous facilities on campus. The Athletic Trainers begin treatments and rehabilitation as early as 6:30 a.m. and are available until the last student-athlete is through. There are currently six athletic training facilities on campus. The staff treats out of two primary athletic training rooms, in the Indoor Practice Facility and the Starnes Athletic Training Center, with four other satellite athletic training rooms, located at Tad Smith Coliseum, Basketball Practice Facility, Gillom Center and Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field. The IPF, Starnes Center and BPF training rooms are stocked with equipment such as

stationary bikes, hand weights, therapeutic modalities, and recent technology like underwater treadmills and Biodex testing equipment. Each component is strategically designed to not only give the student-athletes the best care, but also to aid in returning them to competition as quickly and safely as possible. Singletary, though, said the emphasis is on the student-athlete’s health, first and foremost. Erin Pauley is in her second season as the graduate assistant athletic trainer for women’s tennis. Ole Miss Sports Medicine has strong working relationships with local physicians and Baptist Memorial Hospital, located less than five minutes from the campus. In addition, specialists from the University’s Medical Center are often consulted.

REBEL READY Rebel Ready - CHAMPS Life Skills is a well-rounded program for student-athletes to develop individual skills necessary to lead successful lives and become leaders for our communities and nation. The program consists of five vital components: • The Commitment to Academic Excellence is promoted through a full range of services that include orientation, advising, tutoring, academic skills training and the recognition of academic excellence. • The Commitment to Athletic Excellence is developed by the department’s 10 women and eight men intercollegiate sports teams. The sponsorship is based on equity and compliance to all University, NCAA and Southeastern Conference rules and regulations.

• The Commitment to Career Development is a joint effort of the Ole Miss Athletic Department and Career Center. The goal is to prepare student-athletes for their transition out of sports and into the career development process. Career development components of the program include special workshops and programs for student-athletes and a senior resume brochure. • The Commitment to Personal Development is promoted through life skills and personal development seminars and sponsorship of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. • The Commitment to Service is promoted—in conjunction with the University Counseling Center—through many community service projects throughout the year. The Ole Miss student-athletes are very involved in the community and the community service program continues to grow.

NCAA COMPLIANCE Who Is A Prospect?

A prospective student-athlete is defined as an athlete who has begun classes for the ninth grade. However, it is possible for a younger student to be considered a prospect if the institution (or a representative of its athletic interests) provides the student (or family member) benefits not provided to prospects generally.

Who May Contact a Prospect During the Recruiting Process?

All in-person, on and off-campus recruiting contacts with a prospect (or family) are limited to authorized institutional staff members or full-time enrolled students at the institution. All other persons are prohibited from engaging in any personal, telephone or written contact with the prospect (or family) for encouraging participation in the institution’s athletics programs.

How and When May a Prospect Be Contacted?

In all sports, a prospect may not be contacted in-person, off-campus until their senior year in high school. Prospects may not receive correspondence from an institution until their junior year in high school (exception: men’s basketball - June 15 after sophomore year). Questionnaires and camp brochures may be sent prior to the junior year.

When May a Prospect Visit an Institution's Campus?

Prospects may visit an institution’s campus at their own expense (“unofficial visit”) and receive complimentary passes to an athletic contest anytime except during “dead periods.” Check with the institu9 ALL-AMERICANS | 21 ALL-SEC SEC SELECTIONS

tion for dates. There is no limit to the number of times a prospect may visit a campus at his/her own expense. Prospects may receive an expense paid visit (“official visit”) only after they have begun classes for their senior year and have registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center and submitted transcripts and test scores to the institution. Prospects are limited to a maximum of five official visits with no more than one per institution.

What is Considered "Being Recruited?"

A prospect is considered recruited if a coach, staff member or representative of the institution’s athletic interest (booster) attempts to persuade a prospect (or family member) to enroll at their institution and participate in the athletics program. A student is considered “recruited” if any of the following actions are taken: 1) the institution provides the prospect with an “official visit” (i.e., expenses paid) to its campus; 2) a coach arranges for an in-person, off-campus (home or prospect’s school) encounter with the prospect; 3) receiving more than one telephone call from a coach for recruiting purposes; 4) issuing an NLI or university athletic scholarship.

What Should a Prospect Do During the Recruiting Process?

Prospects should register with the NCAA Eligibility Center during their junior year in high school. Contact your high school guidance counselor or call the NCAA Eligibility Center at (877) 262-1492 for more information. The NCAA publishes “The Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete,” which may be downloaded from the NCAA website.

ATHLETICS FACILITIES

OLE MISS ATHLETICS FACILITIES FEDEX ACADEMIC SUPPORT CENTER

INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITY

FedEx Corporation announced on April 14, 2005, a $2.5 million gift over five years to The University of Mississippi to create an academic support center for student-athletes. In May 2007, the vision became reality as the FedEx Student-Athlete Academic Support Center opened its doors to Rebel athletes. The center provides state-of-the-art computer facilities and space for study halls and tutoring for men and women studentathletes, as well as additional classrooms for all students. “FedEx has always been a strong supporter of educational initiatives at all levels,” said Mike Glenn, executive vice president, marketing development and corporate communications. “This contribution to The University of Mississippi is an extension of our commitment to helping improve the academic resources available to students, and student-athletes in particular.” Glenn said FedEx and Ole Miss are committed to providing a strong academic foundation to enable students to reach their full potential. The money has been used to renovate a portion of the Starnes Athletic Center—which formerly housed football locker rooms, a weight room and training facilities—next to VaughtHemingway Stadium on All-American Drive. The 22,500-square-foot building now houses the Office of Student-Athlete Academic Support, including offices, conference rooms, 20 large and small group tutoring rooms, a large study area, a multi-media classroom, computer lab and 150-seat high-tech auditorium. The project was completed in May 2007 with an approximate cost of $5 million. “American public universities are the best in the world largely because of the generosity of American corporations,” said then-Ole Miss Chancellor Robert Khayat. “FedEx sets the standard for philanthropy by which others are measured. In this case, Ole Miss student-athletes are the primary beneficiaries, but all our students will benefit and, as a result, our entire state benefits.” In addition to its latest gift to the University, FedEx supports several endowed scholarship programs, the Whitten Chair in Law, the Lott Leadership Institute, the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation and William Faulkner’s historic home, Rowan Oak.

Among the finest facilities in all of college athletics, the Ole Miss Indoor Practice Facility is the crown jewel in the growing athletics compound surrounding Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. “With the addition of this magnificent indoor facility, we find that Ole Miss athletes and coaches have the opportunity to practice and play games in state-of-the-art facilities, on the finest fields and courts,” thenOle Miss Chancellor Robert C. Khayat said at the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 22, 2004. “They are in a position of being nationally competitive. As we look forward to finding out what is going to happen in athletics at this university and with the university in general, we can move forward knowing that we have provided the infrastructure and facilities that needed to be provided.” Located beside the South End Zone of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, the Rebels moved into the spectacular $18 million multi-purpose structure in fall 2004. The 150,000-square-foot enclosure is a result of UM's Commitment to Excellence in Athletics Campaign, a $35 million initiative to upgrade the university's athletics programs. In addition to the IPF, the campaign has also resulted in a recently built golf facility, renovations to C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum and a recently constructed track and field complex, which sits just south of the IPF. Also, an endowment has been created to fund scholarships and maintain the new facilities. Numerous Rebel supporters contributed financially to the construction of the indoor practice facility, including legendary Rebel quarterback Archie Manning. In May 2004, former Ole Miss running back Deuce McAllister donated $1 million toward the building of the facility. The architects of the facility were Ferguson & Associates of Jackson.

ATHLETICS ADMINISTRATION BUILDING

STARNES ATHLETIC TRAINING CENTER

Continuing the trend of athletics facility growth that has occurred under Pete Boone, the University provided the Rebels' leadership with a new state-of-the-art home with the opening of the Athletics Administration Building in January 2008. Construction began in August 2006 on the approximately $4.5 million facility, which put all the various facets of the Ole Miss administration under one roof for the first time. Each of the major departments - business, compliance, facilities, media relations, marketing/productions and the UMAA Foundation - has its own wing with spacious offices. Formerly the location of the John White Building and home of the university Physical Plant, the Athletics Administration Building is conveniently situated north of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and close to other athletics facilities, providing a central location for coaches and student-athletes. Highlighting the amenities is an advanced video production studio and control room, which operates the production in the TV studio as well as on the video boards at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Tad Smith Coliseum and Oxford-University Stadium. The multi-functional video area is high definition throughout. For visitors walking through the lobby, the building is enhanced with cutting-edge graphics and images from Ole Miss history. The walls are covered with photos of great athletes, ecstatic crowds and memorable publications, while flat screen, plasma televisions are available throughout the facility. With key personnel all under one roof, the Athletics Administration Building provides a much needed cohesiveness to the everyday operation of the University as it strives to achieve its overall goal for success in athletics.

Every aspect of Ole Miss Athletics is geared toward the success of its student-athletes. The Michael S. Starnes Athletic Training Center provides a valuable role in the development and display of that success. The multi-purpose Starnes Center has undergone many transformations through the years. It currently houses Ole Miss Sports Medicine, FCA and CHAMPS Life Skills headquarters and includes a 10,000-square-foot weight room and a sizeable memorabilia collection. Formerly the Doc Knight Field House, the Training Center stands just north of VaughtHemingway Stadium and within walking distance of Tad Smith Coliseum, Swayze Field and the main athletics office complex. The primary training room on the Ole Miss campus is used by several Rebel sports. The training area has four offices for the athletic training staff, room for at least 13 treatment tables, six taping stations and countless rehabilitation equipment. It also contains a wet room with a whirlpool that help make up an environment for top-notch care and injury prevention for Rebel athletes. The facility extends to the east into a similar structure which holds a massive weight room, a lobby, conference room and offices. Connected to the west end is the FedEx Academic Support Center, a state-of-the-art complex opened in May 2007. Starnes, the building’s benefactor, donated $1 million toward the facility as part of an extensive $2.5 million renovation in 1995. A 1968 Ole Miss graduate, Starnes is president of Tennessee California Express, Inc., a transportation company. Much of the history and the many accolades of Rebel athletics are displayed in two rooms on the second floor of the Starnes Center that make up Hollingsworth-Manning Hall. Dr. Jerry Hollingsworth, an Ole Miss alumnus and general practitioner in Ft. Walton Beach, Fla., joined forces with former Rebel quarterback Archie Manning to establish the recruitment/memorabilia center. It is faithfully maintained and updated by Langston Rogers, Senior Associate Athletics Director Emeritus.
