Chad Kelly excited to play in 'loudest stadium in the world'
Is it Oct. 22 yet?
Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly is already anticipating an electric environment when the Rebels travel to Death Valley in Week 8 to take on LSU.
“It’s going to be the loudest stadium in the world, they say,” Kelly told NOLA.com. “I’m anxious to get out there and in front the crowd and just play to the best of my ability. I know our team’s going to be ready for it.”
The Rebels won last year’s matchup 38-17 in front of the home crowd at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Ole Miss, however, didn’t fare so well in its last visit to Tiger Stadium, falling 10-7 in 2014.
The Magnolia Bowl was bound to come up with Kelly in southeast Louisiana to take part in the Manning Passing Academy camp in Thibodaux, La.
The former camper seemed to be enjoying his experience as an instructor.
“It’s amazing,” Kelly said. “To be out here helping kids (learn) the ropes and stuff like that. I remember when I was a camper seeing these guys that are on TV and now I’m one of those guys that they look up to. It’s kind of awesome that I can give back like that. I’m just thankful to be in this situation.”
