D.T. Shackelford Calls Panama Trip "Life Changing"

Panama Trip Photo Gallery

Group_Panama.jpgTwo weeks ago, I wrote about a group of six Ole Miss football players who went on a mission trip to Panama over spring break.

They have since returned to Oxford and been knee-deep in schoolwork and football practices, but I was able to catch up with senior linebacker D.T. Shackelford, who shared his thoughts on the experience:

"It was life changing. To be able to influence others, it's just a blessing that God enabled us to use our platform to affect others in a positive way. That's something Coach Freeze stresses a lot - use your life for something positive and not anything negative. There are a lot of people in this town that look up to us."

I asked D.T. after this past Wednesday's practice what lessons he and the other guys learned from the trip.

"Gratefulness. I don't think it's a coincidence that I went. Being away from the game for two years, I have to be grateful that I don't struggle like some people in the places that we went. Gratefulness that I don't miss meals. Your perspective on life changes.

"We just finished practice and we're about to go eat a full breakfast and get a free education. Everything's basically free. All of us have cars. We're not missing meals. It's the little things you can take for granted that a lot of people around the world don't get on a daily basis."

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
