Ole Miss football holds a “commitment ceremony” ever year ahead of the season, where the coaches, players, and families that make up the program pledge that they are ‘all in’ with the Rebels.
In 2014, Jill Freeze, wife of head coach Hugh Freeze, described the ceremony to Heart for the Game writer Marsa Truscott.
“We have this ceremony for the coaches, their families, and the players. It is a commitment that we are ‘all in’ and each of us will do our part in committing to do whatever we can to help each other.”
Ole Miss posted the video it showed the team ahead of this year’s ceremony. It features 2015 highlights, practice tape, and clips from various speeches delivered to the Rebels this off-season, including those by pastor Chip Henderson and former Tennessee player and motivational speaker Inky Johnson.
Ole Miss has previously posted video of the 2014 and 2015 commitment ceremonies as a part of its series “The Season.”
The Rebels are prepping for one of the best games of an absolutely loaded opening weekend college football slate. Ole Miss travels to Orlando for a neutral site game against ACC powerhouse Florida State. The game is set to kick off at 8:00 p.m. CT, and will be broadcast on ESPN.
