Though Cotton Bowl preparations are in full force over the practice week, football activities took a back seat to life Tuesday, as head coach Houston Nutt and the Ole Miss football team took to Children's Medical Center of Dallas to visit with patients.
The Rebels signed autographs and mingled with the ailing children throughout the one-hour stay, with various players even partaking in some arts and crafts.
A veteran of coaching in the Cotton Bowl, Nutt is no stranger to Children's. But though he's visited before, this time around was no less meaningful.
Children's Medical Center is a private, not-for-profit, and is one of the largest pediatric healthcare providers in the nation. As the only academic healthcare facility in North Texas dedicated exclusively to the comprehensive care of children from birth to age 18, Children's provides patient care ranging from simple eye exams to specialized treatments in areas such as heart disease.
