Mississippi Football Fans and Media Agree: Damion Fletcher Sweeps Cellular South Outstanding Player Awards!

Southern Miss Star Takes Home Cellular South Fans' Choice Award and Cellular South Conerly Trophy

JACKSON, MS--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) -

WHO:    Damion Fletcher, sophomore, University of Southern Mississippi

WHAT:   With more than 75,000 total votes cast, Southern Miss running back
        Damion Fletcher took home the Cellular South Fans' Choice Award
        during tonight's Cellular South Outstanding Player Award's
        presentation at the Mississippi Spots Hall of Fame and Museum in
        Jackson, Miss.

        Not only was Fletcher the fans' choice, but he also  took home the
        prestigious Cellular South Conerly Trophy, awarded by a media panel
        to Mississippi's top football player for the 2007 season; giving
        him a rare sweep of both awards.

        Fletcher received 38,698 votes, narrowly beating out a late rally
        by Titus Brown of Mississippi State University (35,392 votes) and
        Brown's MSU teammate, running back Anthony Dixon (1,210 votes) as
        the fans' choice for Mississippi's best college football player.
        Thanks to Fletcher's victory, Cellular South will donate $2,500 to
        USM's athletic department.
