    Two Mississippi Universities Lose Football Players, By Death

     
    One of these is the old Mascot, of The University of Mississippi, in Oxford, Mississippi, or better known, as The Ole Miss Rebels.
    The other photo, is the mascot of Mississippi State University, in another part of the state, Starkville, Mississippi.
    These two schools, for years, members of The South Eastern Conference Football League, one of the strongest in the nation, have something in common, as they are both grieving the deaths of two of their future players.
    On Wednesday Night, Ole Miss Defensive Lineman, Park Stevens, from columbus, Mississippi, and former player for New Hope High School, was killed in a car accident, when he ran into the back of a pickup, on his way home.
    Stevens had joined the Ole Miss team, in the Spring of 2013, as a walkon, after two seasons at East Mississippi Community college, at Scoba, Mississippi.
    Ole Miss coaches said he was loved by his team mates.
    He was son of Dean and Gail Stevens.
    Then, on Thursday Morning, a former Riverdale, Tennessee High School player, Mitchell Maxwell, was found dead in his home by his older brother, while his parents were on vacation, in Florida with two youger sons.
    The cause of death will not be known until after the autopsy.
    Mitchell Maxwell's father is Austin Maxwell, former Rutherford County Republican Official, and a Bronze Star Recipient.
    Maxwell's parents were to have helped him move to the dorms, at Mississippi State University, on Monday.
    These two universities and others have experienced the loss of players, during the ball season, but, to lose two young men, so well liked, at an early age, in two days, is something that will cause people to forget about rivalry, for a while, and join in a common mourning
