Ole Miss Frosh Honored

OXFORD — Ole Miss wide receiver Marshay Green was named SEC Freshman of the Week today for his performance in last Saturday’s 20-17 Egg Bowl victory over Mississippi State.

Green returned five punts for 105 yards, including a 47-yarder for a touchdown with 3:39 left that proved to be the winning points. His 23-yard punt return in the third quarter helped set up an Ole Miss field goal, which put the Rebels ahead 13-10.

The Bastrop, La. native, finished the season ranked fifth overall and second among freshmen in the SEC in punt return average with 11.2 yards per return. He also finished third overall and first among freshmen in kickoff return average with 25.2 yards per return.
