Thumbnail image for Walls_Tulane_1988.jpgColton Walls, a sophomore linebacker who started his career at Clemson, is among the non-scholarship players to join the Ole Miss football team this spring.

Rebel fans will be quite familiar with his last name. Colton's father, Wesley Walls, was an All-America tight end/linebacker for the Rebels in 1988 and went on to a successful 14-year NFL career that included five Pro Bowl appearances. Just last week, Wesley was one of 77 players named to the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame.

Colton is the next in a long line of father/son combos to play for Ole Miss through the years. Names like Archie, Cooper and Eli Manning come to mind. And others, like Poole, Luke, Shows, Kinard. Current Rebel wide receiver Jordan Holder is the son of two-time Ole Miss captain Jamie Holder.

Spring practice starts this Sunday at 3 p.m. All practices are open to the public. Here's a link to the full spring schedule.

The up-to-date 2013 roster entering spring practice is online at OleMissSports.com. Other walk-ons joining the team this spring include DB Josh Gregory, OL Tyler Mt. Joy, RB Darryan Ragsdale and OL Park Stevens.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
