Ole Miss Offensive Lineman Park Stevens Dies in Car Accident

Ole Miss Rebels offensive lineman Park Stevens died in a car accident on Wednesday afternoon, according to USA Today. The accident took place in Chickasaw County, Mississippi. The 20-year-old lineman reportedly ran into the back of a semi that was trying to cross a four-lane highway.

The football team acknowledged the loss of park on Wednesday night in a statement.

“Our team is hurting tonight with the loss of Park,” Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said in the prepared statement. “He was a tremendous young man that was loved by his teammates and coaches, and Rebel Nation will never forget him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Stevens’ family, his friends, our team and all those he touched during his life.”

Stevens joined the Ole Miss football team as a walk-on following his transfer from East Central Community College.

We send out our deepest condolences to the entire Stevens family and all of those who are affected by the accident as they deal with this tragic loss.

    God Bless his family and I pray for a comforting peace from our Creator. I am a Bulldawg fan through and through and I’ve never once hated Ole Miss as other fans from my college have shown in the past, but I pray for this team and the devastating loss that this will have on them just like when we lost Nick Bell. I hope and pray for a peace that will envelope them while they go through this time of hurt, sorrow, and loss.
