OXFORD, Miss. – The University of Mississippi's seventh annual Ladies' Football Forum will take place here Saturday, June 23, with registration to begin at 7:15 a.m. at the Indoor Practice Facility, located on Manning Way. During registration, participants can have their picture taken with Rebel head coach Ed Orgeron.
This year's featured speaker will be former Ole Miss player Eli Manning, quarterback of the New York Giants. During his senior year (2003), Manning won the Maxwell Award, given to the nation's top collegiate player, and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the nation's top senior quarterback. He finished third in the 2003 Heisman Trophy balloting and was a finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award, presented to the nation's top quarterback, and The Walter Camp Foundation Player of the Year Award.
Manning, who became just the fifth quarterback in Southeastern Conference history to throw for more than 10,000 career yards, holds 47 game, season and career records at Ole Miss.
After hearing from Manning and the coaches, participants in the forum we'll learn what the Rebels go through to get ready for a game and tour the weight room, training room and locker room. They will also get the opportunity to run out on the field with Coach Orgeron.
"Come and be part of this one-day event that you will remember for a lifetime," said Ladies' Forum Coordinator Chyna Ward. "Our goal is to take you behind the scenes and give you a true game day experience. After the day is over, you'll be the envy of all those who missed out on this extraordinary opportunity."
Women interested in participating in the Ladies' Football Forum should contact Chyna Ward at (662) 915-1564. The cost is $125.00 per person. Registration forms are also available on the official Ole Miss athletic web site at www.olemisssports.com. Go to the football page and click on the link on the sidebar.
Returning campers will receive their invitation letter along with their registration form the first of April.
