Dean and Gail Stevens’ son Park, had always dreamed of playing in the SEC, preferably as a Mississippi State Bulldog. But a call from Coach Hugh Freeze at Ole Miss changed his mind.
He made the team and played in the spring game. Sadly, Stevens was killed in a car accident just months later.
The Stevens say the support they have received from the Ole Miss family in the midst of a painful loss has played a big role in the healing process.
