Change of plans

A year ago Gilbert Pena wasn’t thinking much of playing at the next level. This season Pena has been in better condition, and he’s remained healthy and more productive. He finished the regular season with 30 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and two sacks. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze believes his big defensive tackle has a chance to play in the NFL. Pena is hopeful and gives a lot of credit to the new coaching staff for helping him develop.
