Rebel Players Grab PreSeason Honors

Ole Miss senior linebacker Patrick Willis, and sophomore offensive tackle Michael Oher, both pick up preseason honors from The Sporting News.

Willis is named preseason first team All-American, and All-Southeastern Conference.

The Sporting News also tabs him as the nation's No. 1 inside linebacker for 2006.

As a Junior, Willis led the nation in solo tackles.

TSN selects Oher, a former Briarcrest High star, as preseason second team All-SEC.

The 6'5" 330 pounder will play left tackle this fall.

Oher earned first team Freshman All-America honors last season.
