Countdown To Kickoff: 70 Days

Today on the countdown we would like to honor a Rebel who left us all too soon. Joey Embry was an offensive lineman on the Ole Miss football team for two years before his tragic death on May 19, 1998. His Rebel teammates dedicated the 1998 season to Joey and wore his name and number on their helmets. Joey's parents also helped keep his memory alive with the Joey Embry Memorial Scholarship Fund, established to help student-athletes at Ole Miss. Anyone wishing to contribute to the fund should contact The University of Mississippi Foundation at 1-800-340-9542.

If you have a suggestion for a favorite player, play or something a little more creative you would like to see featured in the countdown, leave a comment below or shoot me an e-mail at
