Rebels Set To Induct Five To M-Club Hall Of Fame

OXFORD, Miss. "Play for the name on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back," is a phrase often heard in the sports world. It's a reference to players competing for the glory of their school or organization and not for their own personal glory.

The irony of the situation is that in many cases, achieving greatness for the name on the front of the jersey often leads to glory for individuals. They go on to claim championships for their schools, sign professional contracts and go to that "next level" of competition in athletics.

Often that greatness achieved for the name on the front of the jersey and the personal glory that comes with it endears an athlete to the fan base. That's the case with the five individuals being honored Saturday with induction into the M-Club Athletic Hall of Fame. All of them helped the Rebels take that next step in athletics or brought championships home to Oxford.

Included in this year's class are former Lady Rebel basketball player Jackie Martin-Glass, Lady Rebel trackster Teneeshia Jones, a pair of football stars in Kris Mangum and Kelvin Pritchett, and a two-sport athlete who brought a pair of conference titles to the Rebels in the late "Ary" Phillips.

Jackie Martin-Glass, a four-year letter winner for the Rebels (1988-92), was a part of bringing Ole Miss women's basketball its first Southeastern Conference Championship in 1992. She also helped the Rebels become the first SEC team to go 11-0 in conference play that season as the league expanded to 12 teams with the addition of South Carolina and Arkansas a year earlier.

A two-time All-SEC selection in 1990 and 1992, Martin's career began with a bang as she was named to the All-Freshman team in 1988. Over the course of her career, she worked her way into the record books and is still in the top five for three-point baskets and assists in a career. She is also 12th in scoring as she scored 1,395 points and helped the Rebels to three NCAA Tournaments.

Martin-Glass's achievements on the court also brought her accolades on a regional and national level, as she was named an All-Region selection by Kodak and by the NCAA following the 1991-92 season.



She is married to former Rebel basketball great Gerald Glass and continues to work with basketball and women's athletics as an assistant coach in basketball and track at Warren Central in Vicksburg. Martin-Glass also teaches Physical Education at Bowman Elementary in Vicksburg. She and her husband have two children Gerald Damon Jr. (12) and Jalen Jakobi (8).

Teneeshia Jones ran her way into the Southeastern Conference and Ole Miss record books in her career with the Rebels. Jones garnered All-America honors eight times seven times in indoor competition and once in outdoor competition - and she holds the school record in several events, including: 60-meters, 60-meter hurdles, 200-meter indoors, and the 100-meters, 200-meters, 55-meters and 55-meter hurdles.

Prior to the accomplishments of Brittney Reese this season, Jones was the leading scorer all-time for the Rebels at the SEC Indoors and Outdoor Championships. She was named the NCAA South Region Runner of the Year in 2001 as she claimed the SEC Championship in the 100-meter hurdles and finished third in the 60-meter dash at the NCAA Championships. She also anchored the school's outdoor 4x200 relay team in 2001.

After finishing in the top five in events more than 12 times in her career at the SEC and NCAA Championships, Jones also went on to represent the United States in the 2001 World University Games.

Jones earned her degree in Social Work from Ole Miss and currently works for the Department of Human Services in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Kris Mangum earned three letters for the Rebels (1994-96) after transferring to Ole Miss from the University of Alabama. During his three years in the Red and Blue, Mangum caught 74 passes for 729 yards and four touchdowns. He ended his career with the Rebels second among tight ends in receiving, trailing only the great Jim Poole in receptions and his 729 yards was third best among tight ends in school history.

Mangum started 31-of-33 games played for the Rebels and was selected to represent Ole Miss in the East-West Shrine Game and the Blue-Gray Classic as a senior. He served as a permanent team captain during the 1996 season and was a first team All-America selection by Football Digest and second team All-America selection by the Football News. He was also a finalist for the inaugural Charlie Conerly Award honoring the best college football player in Mississippi.

Drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the seventh round of the 1997 NFL Draft, Mangum played professionally for 10 years before retiring from the league in 2006. He ended his career fifth in receiving with 151 catches for 1,424 yards. He also scored nine touchdowns in his career with the Panthers.

Mangum is married to the former Mary Ellen Coleman and the couple has four children: Ally Grace (9), Molly Anne (7), Mary Claire (3) and Kristofer Thomas Jr.

The late C. Alton "Ary" Phillips was a two-sport athlete for the Rebels, lettering in basketball and baseball three years during his career at Ole Miss from 1927 through 1929. Phillips was a key component to the Rebels' early success in athletics as he helped lead both the basketball team and baseball team to Southern Conference Championships in 1928.

An All-Southern Conference guard on the Rebel basketball team, Phillips played on the hard court with his twin brother, Cary, and was named to the Southern Conference All-Tournament team in 1928 after helping the Rebels claim the title. It was also the last time the Rebels beat Kentucky in basketball until the 1973 season.

Following the 1928 season, Phillips was named an All-America selection by Allan Gould who was the general sports editor of the Associated Press at the time and who named two All-America teams.

Phillips was also an outstanding shortstop on the baseball diamond for the Rebels as he played the middle infield with brother Cary. Phillips rounded out a stellar year of athletics for Ole Miss in 1928 as he followed up the Southern Conference Championship in basketball with another Southern Conference title on the baseball diamond.

Phillips was married to the late Bess Phillips. They were the parents of three sons: Alton, Jerry and the late Ary Jr.

Kelvin Pritchett made a name for the Rebels, lettering three years while suiting up for Ole Miss from 1988-90. The defensive tackle had an outstanding career that saw him garner All-SEC and All-America honors following his senior season in 1990. The honor followed up a junior season that saw him named an All-SEC second team selection for his performance on the gridiron.

For his accomplishments on the football field, Pritchett was selected to the Ole Miss Team of the Century that honored the best players to wear the Red and Blue from 1883-1992. Pritchett posted 259 career tackles, including 95 during a senior campaign that also saw him record eight sacks and force two fumbles. He was also named as the recipient of the Clower-Walters Scholarship in 1990.

Following his career with the Rebels, Pritchett played in the 1990 Senior Bowl and was a first-round pick in the 1991 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys, but was traded to the Detroit Lions in a deal that same day. Pritchett went on to put together a 14-year career in the NFL including stops with the Lions and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Pritchett has one daughter, Chloe Raquel (2).

Also being honored at halftime is George Lotterhos, this year's recipient of the 2008 M-Club Service Award. The award is being named after him, and from this day forward, will be called the George T. Lotterhos M-Club Service Award. This award is based on leadership, dedication, service and commitment to the M-Club. Lotterhos, a past president of the M-Club, spearheaded the idea for the Grove Bowl that raises money for scholarships. Currently 67 college students are on scholarship through the M-Club.
