By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

Ole Miss offensive lineman Park Stevens died in a car accident in Chickasaw County, Miss., on Wednesday afternoon.

"Our team is hurting tonight with the loss of Park," said Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze in a statement released Wednesday night. "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."

According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, Stevens' truck ran into the back of a semi that was trying to cross a four-lane highway.

Stevens joined the Rebels this spring as a walk-on after transferring from East Central Community College in Decatur, Miss.

He was 20 years old.
