Telling the stories of the most storied place

Planning for the Chucky Mullins Courage Award


Today I met with several of the organizing members of the Chucky Mullins Courage Award banquet.  The event, April the 16th, will be the 20th such banquet, a number that just doesn’t seem possible.  Was it really two decades ago when we were all brought to awareness of this fantastic human being?  Was it really two decades ago that we learned the definition of bravery, of determination, of the unbreakable human spirit?  Indeed, it has been twenty years ago this fall when the number 38 became a legend and touched not only this University, but the nation.  It is an extreme honor for me to work on this banquet and plan for the 20th year of the Courage Award.  There is no greater honor for an Ole Miss football player than to earn the number 38.  We will be collecting memories of Chucky for the banquet to be played on the big screen throughout the evening.  If you are a former teammate, coach, friend or fan that was touched by Chucky, give us a call or email us.  We’d love to hear from you.
