Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze is confident with the way his quarterback, Bo Wallace, is approaching the off-season.
“Best he’s ever been. I think he’s matured. He knows this is the last go-round and seems to be trying to study a lot more and to make sure he’s taking a leadership role in the actions of some of our teammates that he has some influence on. I’ve been pleased,” Freeze said.
Wallace’s off-season will include a trip to California to visit with specialist Tom House regarding strength and conditioning for his shoulder.
Wallace will be out there for about a week starting on May 17.
There’s more on Wallace’s visit with House coming up in the Daily Journal. Freeze says he doesn’t expect to necessarily see a giant leap in production for Wallace but is hopeful that Wallace will be stronger at the end of the season.
“He’s probably going to leave here shattering all the passing records in Ole Miss history, so he’s done something right. Of course the system helps with that. There have not been many quarterbacks that have been in that (system).”
Actually, Wallace set a couple of season records last year with 3,701 yards of total offense and 283 completions.
Eli Manning has some career records that are still pretty far in the distance.
He needs 3,779 to overtake Eli Manning mark of 10,119 career passing yards.
It’s more realistic that he would reach the total offense record as Manning’s minus-135 yards leaves him with 9,984 yards of total offense.
Wallace set a school season record with 3,701 yards in 2013. He needs 2,900 to pass Manning.
Wallace has 40 career passing touchdowns. It would take quite a leap to catch Eli Manning’s record of 81, but Wallace is in line to climb to No. 2 on the list by passing Romaro Miller (43) and Jevan Snead (46).
