Video: Former Bulldog Fans Now Call Ole Miss Family

Park Stevens and FamilyCOLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- A Columbus couple has cheered for Mississippi State all of their lives, but they will be rooting for the Ole Miss Rebels in this year’s Egg Bowl.

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.
