Wide Receivers

I think the biggest improvement on the team this year has been the play of the wide receivers. And I believe an overwhelming part of their success belongs to their position coach Hugh Freeze. Freeze has done wonders with this group of receivers. There were many people who felt like the receiving group would be a weakness in our offense this year. Those people felt we did not have the speed nor talent to be competitive in the SEC. Turn out they have been one of the key assets to our team.

Mike Wallace, Shay Hodge, and Marshay Green have all helped make Seth Adams look like an SEC quarterback this season. Adams has really impressed alot of people and shut his naysayers up. He has thrown the ball well and aside from a few int's has played some great games for the Rebels. Now that McCluster is back and has a couple of games under his belt I see us spreading the offense out even more.

I go back to Hugh Freeze. Freeze has been a vital part of this staff from day one. He has been responsible for recruiting and according to all accounts he has connected well with recruits. Freeze has also brought along two of the best players on the team in Greg Hardy and Michael Oher who both played for Freeze at Briarcrest. Freeze has to be one of the up and coming coaches in the NCAA. Considering he was coaching high school just a few years ago, I would say give the guy two more years and he will be a head coach or coordinator somewhere in the NCAA.

After all this guy coached all stars like Charles Harris and Will Drummond, what else could you ask for?
