Booras_Randall_Chadwick.jpgUnder head coach Billy Chadwick's 30-year watch, the Ole Miss men's tennis program has produced 28 All-Americans.  That equates to almost one All-American every season - quite remarkable.  This demonstrates the type of talent that Coach Chadwick has attracted and molded to earn such a prestigious honor.

Today, we will highlight moment No. 32 in our look at the top 35 moments in Chadwick's illustrious career, and remember the first two All-Americans for the Ole Miss men's tennis program.  In 1988, Mississippi native Dave Randall, and Jamie Booras (Flossmoor, Ill.) became the first two All-America selections for the University of Mississippi.

Booras, often called "Boom-Boom" for his powerful serve, was named to the All-SEC Team in 1988 and reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championships in doubles with Randall.  The dynamic duo was ranked in the top 10 in doubles for two years.

Randall was the epitome of the type of player every coach wants to represent their program and university.  Randall not only was an All-American and two-time All-SEC selection, he also earned the Rafael Osuna Sportsmanship award, given to the nation's most outstanding college tennis player demonstrating both great skill and sportsmanship.  Randall won three SEC titles at Ole Miss and joined his former coach in the Mississippi Tennis Hall of Fame this year.

As we continue the countdown, we will present the events in chronological order from the list that has been compiled.  As we continue the journey through Coach Chadwick's tenure, the moments that have shaped this program will continue to get bigger and bigger.

Stay tuned for No. 31 on Friday.
