STARKVILLE – Mississippi State’s football greats will get a permanent home on campus.
The school announced Monday that it will “permanently recognize” players, coaches and others “close to the program” who have made a significant impact on MSU football.
MSU did not specify how the honorees would be recognized, but the first group of four will be announced Saturday during halftime of the annual Maroon-White spring football game.
Each recipient will be formally recognized during the 2011 season.
Southern Miss workout: The Southern Miss team went through its 11th workout of the spring on Monday. The 2 1/2-hour workout in pads and shorts was held outside.
The Golden Eagles will return to the practice field Wednesday and Friday before Saturday afternoon’s Black and Gold Spring Game.
