Countdown To Kickoff: 60 Days

Today on the countdown we honor a true Rebel, Warner Alford. A guard for Ole Miss from 1958-60, Alford won two national championships and was a co-captain on the Rebels' 1960 national championship squad. Alford later served as Ole Miss' Athletics Director from 1978-94 and was the Executive Director of the Alumni Association from 2004-08. Here Alford is pictured throwing a "look-out" block for Jake Gibbs in the 1960 Sugar Bowl.

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 desnowde@olemiss.edu.
