John Youngblood Wins 2016 Chucky Mullins Courage Award

Ole Miss senior John Youngblood won the 2016 Chucky Mullins Courage Award at a banquet held Saturday morning, giving the defensive end from Trussville, Alabama the privilege to wear the coveted number 38 jersey this fall.

“Why do people always forget about John?” D-coordinator Dave Wommack asked of the Ole Miss Spirit a few weeks ago. “He is way more valuable than he gets credit for. He’s not a flashy player, but I guarantee you he’s not going to make mistakes and what you ask him to do, he does. There’s more value to that than people realize.”
