This is a picture of All American Fullback John Dottley in 1950. He recently past away last month at the age of 90. As a player for Ole Miss legendary coach John Vaught, Dottley earned four letters (1947-50), while establishing nine school records, including most career rushing yards, most points in a season and most yards in a game. He was selected to All-American honors in 1949 when he led the nation in rushing with 1,312 yards and the SEC in scoring with 84 points.
Dottley was an All-SEC pick in 1949 and 1950 when he led the league in rushing both years. His 1,312 yards rushing in 1949 set a new SEC record at the time as did his 6.3 yards per rush, and he was chosen by his teammates to receive the Thomas Turner Trophy for being the Most Valuable Player on the 1949 Ole Miss team.
One of only five players in Ole Miss football history to rush for 1,000 or more yards in a season and one of only two Rebels to do it twice, Dottley had 1,312 yards on 208 carries in 1949 and then rushed for 1,007 yards on 191 carries in 1950. After almost 70 years since his last Ole Miss game, Dottley still has two of the top six single-season individual rushing efforts in Rebel history. As for his best single-game rushing performances, Dottley gained 235 yards vs. Chattanooga in 1949, 230 yards vs. TCU in 1949, and 216 vs. Mississippi State in 1949 when he carried the football a school-record 40 times, which set a new national single-game record. He is the only player in Ole Miss history with more than one 200-yard rushing game.
His four-year career totals include 2,654 yards rushing on 478 carries, an average of 5.55 yards per carry, and he ranks third in school history for most career yards rushing (2,654), having held the record for 50 years before Deuce McAllister gained 3,060 rushing yards when his career ended in 2000.
Dottley's 131.2 yards per game are a school record and his 21 career rushing touchdowns still rank sixth in Ole Miss history. He also shares the Ole Miss single-season record with Archie Manning, Deuce McAllister and Brandon Bolden for most rushing touchdowns.

Самые популярные иностранные языки в университетах США - испанский 🇪🇸 и французский 🇫🇷. Русский обычно тоже входит в десятку. В этом семестре 27 человек начали изучать русский язык 🇷🇺 в ОлеМисс.
Все студенты разного возраста, т.к в США нет строгого деления на группы и потоки. Есть обязательные предметы, а есть по выбору, поэтому студенты сами решают когда и какой предмет взять. Кто-то уже заканчивает университет👨🏼🎓, а кто-то только поступил.
Меня очень порадовали американские студенты, в большинстве своём, они очень светлые, добрые, неиспорченные, любознательные и прилежные. Мне было очень интересно с ними💫. Вот и закончился первый семестр, и пролетели 4 месяца моего пребывания в США. Впереди меня ждёт конференция участников программы в Вашингтоне и каникулы до конца января✈️. #usa#mississippi#oxfordms#olemiss#universityofmississippi#russianlanguage#olemissrussian#russianteacher#fulbright#flta#flta2018#америка#миссисипи#олемисс

Coach John Vaught talking with a player. I’m not sure who the player is if anyone knows. This picture is from my neighbors private collection.
I finally got to visit William Faulkner’s gravesite. It looks like people have been out here paying their respects!

I did this in photoshop. A picture of the Walk of Champions and two Ole Miss football captains. On the right is fullback/tackle Cleveland P Huggins from Biloxi who was captain over coach Tom Hammonds 1906 team and on the left is end Frank Smythe of Memphis who served as Coach William Driver’s 1914 squad captain.

I’m so ready for baseball season to start now that the football season is over! It’s such a beautiful Sunday today!
The culmination of years of hard work paid off tonight with Reed’s white coat ceremony at the University of Mississippi Medical School. It was an inspiring message to aspiring doctors...integrity, honesty, dignity. Committing a life to improving others’ lives is quite humbling as a parent to watch. I’m both inspired and in awe of what he has done to get here and what it will take to persevere through the process. If anybody can do it, buddy, it’s you!
The other photos here are a testament to friendship, brotherhood, and the family we choose. I am so fortunate to have had these men together with Reed for four years. Three of the five roommates who are also fraternity brothers enrolling together in the same medical school must be rare. I know the love has been, and everyone in our family has been blessed for it.
I am in Oxford to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Black graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law! I'm so grateful for people like Reuben Anderson, Constance Slaughter-Harvey and A.C. Wharton who paved the way for students like me to go to law school. I've included pictures of me in 1994,1995 and 1996 as a 1st, 2nd and 3rd year law student, Honor Council Member, BLSA (Black Law Students' Association) Officer, and entertaining Morgan Freeman. Some of the pics are from the year book so they are grainy but I got some great shots with my law school classmates and my baby interacting with the faculty and Dean of the Law Center. #universityofmississippi#schooloflaw#gaypolkpayton#gaypolkpaytonwhite#classof1996
