It was a big day in Oxford, Mississippi last Saturday. For starters, the Rebels beat up on the LSU Tigers to stay alive in the hunt for the SEC West title.
But, it was also a day to honor those who are very giving people. Both, with significant ties to the Wuerffel Trophy.
Those being Deterrian “DT” Shackelford and Dr. Jerry Hollingsworth.
Shackelford was the 2014 Wuerffel Trophy recipient and was on hand for a “Game Day Salute” by Ole Miss.
Dr. Hollingsworth was also on hand to be honored by the university for his recent donation of $25 million to Ole Miss Athletics.
Shackelford said that for him, the day was amazing.
“It was awesome!!! Had a blast meeting and seeing Doc,” he said. “Appreciate the opportunity and as always, I am beyond blessed to be a Wuerffel Trophy recipient.”
