He’s No. 94 and he’s our Rebel of the Day with only 94 days until kickoff against the Texas Technical School for Raiding Red Things.

Gross came to Ole Miss from the developed pipeline of the University of South Panola as the 6A Defensive Player of the Year in 2011. Standing at 6’1 and 265-pounds, it was clear that Gross playing defensive tackle in college was going to be an adjustment — or so we all thought wrong.

He broke into the starting line-up as a freshman and wrecked backfields, logging 10 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks and earning a Freshman All American nod. He improved his sack total by one his sophomore year with 3.5, but unfortunately experienced a setback in his junior year with neck pain for an entire season.

Gross took a year off from football to recover from a neck surgery that threatened his football career only to come back to the field again in 2016, logging 28 tackles in his senior campaign and finished his career at Ole Miss 10th overall in tackles for loss (29.5).

Rebel of the Day No. 95 — Issac of the hardest working Rebs in recent memory.
