OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss football team returned to the football field Thursday morning for a  high-energy practice session following an evening session the night before that also impressed head coach Hugh Freeze with its energetic tone.

But the instruction that occurred on the field wasn’t all on learning the playbook as prior to taking the field, the team heard from SEC Coordinator of Officials Steve Shaw, who paid a visit to Oxford to explain the new rule changes for the 2013 season.

Once on the field, the Rebels went through a workout with enthusiasm and a quick step that caught the eye of the Ole Miss coaching staff.

“To come back from last night’s high-energy practice was good today,” said Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze. “To bounce back today with spirit was good. It was a good test. We had two good competitions today and we split them, then we let the coaches decide how to break the tie at the end. We ran a first-and-10 drill from the 20, and the offense found a way to score.

“It was a good, spirited workout,” Freeze said. “The players have really responded well to the daily grind of fall camp.”

The Rebels continued to work on getting players back on the field with a handful of players missing time due to injury early in the preseason. Among those making successful returns to the field in varying capacities included Charles Swayer and Senquez Golson.

“Charles (Sawyer) practiced today, but we didn’t let him hit anyone,” Freeze said. “In live stuff we had him get out of the way. Senquez (Golson) ran again today for his second day of running.”

The progress on working players back onto the field has been ongoing, but is moving forward.

“It’s going well,” Freeze said. “Issac (Gross) has gone every day now. Patrick (Junen) is real close and we could see him practice again next week. Kailo (Moore) is back and took a lot of carries today. I’Tavius (Mathers) is out of his boot and also close to practicing again.”

Fans should mark their calendars for the annual Meet The Rebels Day presented by Community Trust Bank, Aug. 17 at the Indoor Practice Facility. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m.
