Former Ole Miss player turns in pads for coaching whistle

Once a solid force on the football field, former Ole Miss defender C.J. Johnson is hoping to have a similar impact in the future on the sidelines. Per his Twitter account, Johnson has announced he will be an assistant coach this upcoming season at East Mississippi Junior College.

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 10.03.39 AMformer 5-star recruit out of Philadelphia, Miss., Johnson accrued 13.5 sacks, 27 tackles-for-loss, and 180 tackles throughout this career in Oxford. Not fully living up to the considerable hype he entered college with, Johnson went undrafted this past April.

With preseason camp on the horizon, Ole Miss soccer has already earned national accolades, checking in at No. 22 in the NSCAA Preseason Poll, the organization announced Tuesday.

The Rebels, coming off a 14-5-4 season and Sweet 16 appearance, are one of five teams from the Southeastern Conference in the preseason top 25. Ole Miss finished last season ranked No. 16 in the final NSCAA poll, the best finish in program history.

Earlier last season Ole Miss surged to No. 12 in the country on Oct. 27 following a five-game win streak. Six of the Rebels’ 2016 opponents appeared in the preseason ranking, including No. 7 Florida, No. 8 Texas A&M, No. 24 South Carolina, (RV) South Alabama, (RV) LSU and (RV) Michigan.

The Rebels return 18 players from last season’s roster, and welcome seven newcomers to the program. Preseason camp gets underway Wednesday morning, and will continue leading up to the preseason match at SMU slated for Aug. 12.

Ole Miss’ regular season opens Aug. 19 against Louisiana-Lafayette at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium, which will begin a four-game home stand.

Ole Miss Rebels All-Millennial Football Team

The turn of the century has brought some great football players to the Ole Miss campus. I’ve compiled my version of an All-Millennial Team.

The recent success of the Ole Miss Rebels on the football field has fostered debates about the greatest players in Rebel history. Those debates are great for dinner time conversation, but usually there is no resolution. It is nearly impossible to compare players of today to those of earlier eras.

So I’ve decided to look back over the past 16 years and come up with my version of a Ole Miss Rebel All-Millennial Team. Now I must tell you that there is no scientific data used. I didn’t interview the great sports minds of our generation. I didn’t go through 5,000 hours of game tape. When I think about the countless games I’ve watched and attended over the past 16 years, this team is the team I would put together. It’s just that simple.
