Freeze eager to see tapes of Wallace’s visit with Tom House

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace recently returned from his west coast trip to visit with specialist Tom House regarding his shoulder.

House has gained a national reputation for his work with pitchers first and more recently football players such as NFL quarterbacks Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

Wallace has had shoulder issues for both of his two seasons as the Rebels’ start, the first after he took a hit on it during the season then last year because shoulder surgery limited his ability to participate in off-season conditioning.

The shoulder was much weaker at the end of the season, Freeze said. The visit to see House, which was paid for by Wallace’s family, was not to alter mechanics in any way but to find House’s suggestions for ways for Wallace to perform at his highest level with minimal stress on the shoulder.

Regarding mechanics, Ole Miss quarterbacks coach Dan Werner has been in touch with House all along the way.

β€œI’m looking forward to watching the tapes of all that when I get back,” Freeze said. β€œAt the end of the day, what we’ve kind of decided is, ‘Alright Bo, do you like this? Does this give you extra velocity? Does it make you feel better doing it this way or this way?’ We’re saying basically the same things. Timing has to be right. If something makes him feel better on your release, we’ll lean to Bo on that.”

    Bo should be on the ‘top’ of his game this upcoming season with the expert help of Tom House. Afterall, Ole Miss is in the Top25, in most pre-season polls, because of Bo Wallace’s arm and the talent that surrounds him.
