Look at athletes’ success in the classroom, too. And don’t forget about Mississippi State’s performance on the field where the Bulldogs won a bowl, played in the men’s basketball tournament and appeared in the College World Series in the last year.
“He doesn’t get out and blow that horn, but he worked hard to make that happen,” Interim Mississippi State President Vance Watson said.
