Jeff Herrod

Sept. 19, 2013

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Jeff Herrod, the Rebels' leading linebacker from 1984-87, has been selected as Ole Miss' representative for the 2013 Southeastern Conference Football Legends Class.

The SEC Legends Class includes 14 former SEC stars that have made a name for themselves as great athletes on the playing field.

During his four-year career at Ole Miss, Herrod became the school's all-time leader in tackles with 528, while also leading the Rebels in tackles all three years as a full-time starter. Herrod was named Defensive MVP in the 1987 Senior Bowl.

Not only was his collegiate career a successful one, but so was his NFL tenure. He had over 1,300 tackles during his 11-year career in the league, playing 10 years with the Indianapolis Colts and one year with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Even in retirement, he has represented the Colts on several occasions, including the 2012 NFL Draft and the 2012 NFL Kickoff celebration, taking part in NFL Play 60 Youth Clinics.

Herrod is a member of the Ole Miss Team of the Century, the Ole Miss Sports Hall of Fame and Athlon Sports All-Time Rebel Team.

This year's class will be honored at the 2013 SEC Football "Weekend of Champions" Dec. 6-7 in Atlanta, Ga. The annual SEC Legends Dinner presented by AT&T will be held Dec. 6 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta and the group will also be recognized prior to the SEC Football Championship Game, which will be held at the Georgia Dome on Sat., Dec. 7.
