Coach Hugh Freeze and 14 Rebels are making a difference in Haiti

Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze, nine current football players, two staff members and three managers of the team, are spending spring break in Haiti on a mission trip—the third consecutive year for Ole Miss football to participate in an outreach trip.

The purpose this year is to help build a reservoir that will provide clean drinking water for thousands of Haitians.

According to Ole Miss Athletics, here is the list of Ole Miss players, staff and managers who are in Haiti:


Head Coach Hugh Freeze
Maurice Harris, Tight Ends/Recruiting Coordinator for Offense
John Powell, FCA/Football Chaplain


Chad Kelly
Andy Pappanastos
LaKedrick King
Tee Shepard
Josh Johnson
Jeremy Liggins
Christian Russell
John Youngblood
Gary Wunderlich

Ole Miss Football Team Managers:

Ryan Garrett
Austin Jones
Lee Plaxico

Several of the players and coaches have taken to social media to update Rebel fans and the world back home about the wonderful work they are doing overseas, and we are fortunate to have pictures of their outreach courtesy of their social media accounts.

Hotty Toddy to these Rebels who are truly making a difference!
