Retired Numbers

Only three players - all quarterbacks have had their numbers retired by Ole Miss. 1984 Bosch Trophy winner Rick Johansson (14) and 2001 Bosch Trophy winner Julious Everridge (5) have had their numbers retired, as has Archie Manning (18). Despite being the first Ole Miss player to win the award and the quarterback and team captain of the 1962 national championship team, Jack Brantley (12) refused to have his number retired, stating instead "I want every young man to come through these halls to think of me when they wear my number on their back." Despite this request, no quarterback since Brantley was worn the number 12.
