Freeze: Ole Miss QB Wallace threw for first time Tuesday
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said quarterback Bo Wallace threw the football Tuesday for the first time since January.
Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace threw the football this week for the first time since January, Rebels coach Hugh Freeze told the Clarion-Ledger on Thursday.
Freeze was in Atlanta with the rest of the SEC coaches for the unveiling of the SEC Network, set to launch in August 2014. Freeze had previously updated Wallace's status with the hope that he would begin throwing soon, and the Rebels coach was pleased to confirm the quarterback was ahead of schedule.
"I feel good about his first day," Freeze said of Wallace's throwing on Tuesday. "He felt good."
Wallace quickly became the starting quarterback after arriving from junior college prior to the 2012 season. The rising junior made an impressive debut, racking up the second-most total yards (3,384) and fourth most touchdown passes (22) in a single season in school history. Wallace also led the team with eight rushing touchdowns, a feat that had not been accomplished by a Rebel quarterback since Archie Manning.
But for Ole Miss to take another step forward offensively, Wallace has to be even better and limit his mistakes in big games. With nine starters returning on offense, a healthy Wallace should be able to pick up where he left off alongside Donte Moncrief, Jeff Scott and others.
