Ole Miss to do mission work in Haiti during spring break again
Ole Miss will be spending spring break in Haiti once again.
The Rebels athletic department announced that the football team will send 28 players from Oxford, Miss., to Camp Marie, Haiti to build upon their mission work to assist struggling Haitians to develop a sustainable community.
This is the third straight spring break that Ole Miss will travel there. In 2015, Ole Miss players helped the village of roughly 10,000 Haitians to have access to clean water. Now, the players will help them distribute that water to their crop areas.
Severe drought has impacted those areas, and the team — which includes the players, coaches, staff and family — will lend a helping hand to local farmers in digging trenches for better irrigation.
Among the players that will be traveling: Chad Kelly, Talbot Buys, Armani Linton and Sean Rawlings. Coaches will include Hugh Freeze, Corey Batoon and Maurice Harris, all of whom will bring each of their families.
Meanwhile, senior executive associate athletics director Stephen Ponder and his family will also be among those there.
