Snoop Conner to Appear at Rock House Live in Oxford During Grove Bowl, Double Decker Weekend
OXFORD, Miss. — Former Ole Miss running back and fan favorite Snoop Conner will be appearing Saturday, April 23 at a special “Meet and Greet” event at Rock House Live in Oxford from 4:00pm-6:00pm. (Entry is free. A photo and autograph will cost $25.)
As Snoop enters the NFL Draft that begins on April 28th, Rebels in Oxford will get the chance to take pictures and get autographs from him.
Snoop, a 5-foot-10, 220-pound running back from Hattiesburg, finished with 26 career rushing touchdowns while at Ole Miss. During his junior season, Snoop broke out to lead the team with 13 rushing touchdowns and finished second on the team with 647 rushing yards.
Snoop was also outstanding during his career at Hattiesburg High School. He was named 5A Mr. Football by MHSAA and selected to the Clarion Ledger’s 2018 Dandy Dozen. He earned MVP honors in the prestigious Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game, after running for two TDs and 112 yards on 17 carries.
Preparing for the Draft
Since the end of the Rebels’ season in the Sugar Bowl, Snoop has been preparing for the upcoming draft.
“It’s been fun. It’s been a good experience,” Snoop said after the Rebels’ Pro Day last month. “You know, you only go through it once, so I’ve been enjoying it. I’m just trying to see where I’m going to land at now,” he added.
Snoop was asked what he feels like he can bring to a pro team. ”My physicality, being a physical running back, downhill runner,” he began.
“They really don’t have that many in the NFL right now, so I feel like I bring that. Then just catching the ball out of the backfield,” said Conner.
Conner explained how he planned for some time to leave Ole Miss early and declare for the draft.
“My mindset going into my junior year was to put up the numbers I needed to get out. That was my mindset coming into my freshman year, really. I knew I was going to try to come in and get out. Also, I knew I wanted to get my degree, too. I’m still in school trying to get my degree,” he related.
Conner says it was not a tough decision for him to declare early.
“It wasn’t difficult at all,” he said. “I know for my parents it was difficult for them, because that’s a new transition with me being a professional now. They were kind of worried, but I knew in my heart and my mind that I was ready to make the transition to go be a pro. I felt like I was ready for it,” Snoop noted.
Conner will watch the NFL Draft from his Hattiesburg home with his parents.
