OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Chucky Mullins Courage Award with a ceremony, presented by the M-Club, on Saturday morning, April 5, and tickets are now on sale at OleMissFB.com.

The Inn at Ole Miss will host the event with breakfast beginning at 8 a.m. CT, followed by the ceremony emceed by the “Voice of the Rebels,” David Kellum. The Regions Bank Grove Bowl game will kick off at noon later that day.

Many former winners will be on hand for the landmark occasion, and special guests on stage will be 1992 recipient Trea Southerland, who was a suitemate of Mullins, and 1996 recipient Derek Jones, who is currently an assistant coach for the Duke Blue Devils.

Presented at the breakfast will be the 25th annual Chucky Mullins Courage Award, which goes to an upperclassman defensive player at Ole Miss who will have the honor of wearing Mullins' No. 38 on the field during the 2014 football season.

The recipient, which is chosen by the Rebel coaching staff, will also be recognized during on-field ceremonies at the Regions Bank Grove Bowl game.
