Vote for Lindsay

ATLANTA — Ole Miss great Everett Lindsay is among the 12 candidates in AT&T’s poll of the best SEC offensive lineman of all time. It is part of the company’s “Best of 75 Years of SEC Football,” an 11-week program that allows fans to vote for their favorite players, coaches and traditions from the past.

AT&T customers can enter to vote after accessing SEC Mobile on their handsets by texting SEC to 234567. They will then receive a menu of options to choose from, which includes alerts, trivia, SEC video, news, downloads and sweepstakes. Voting began Sept. 4 and runs through Nov. 16 with results announced weekly.

Lindsay walked on at Ole Miss in 1989 and emerged as a four-year letterman and three-year starter, earning first team All-America honors in 1991 and 1992. The Raleigh, N.C., native was a fifth-round NFL draft pick of Minnesota in 1993 and spent 11 years in the league, playing with the Vikings, Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.
