OXFORD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Ole Miss Rebel family is mourning the loss of a legend.

Stan Sandroni, 64, passed away of a heart attack in Oxford late Wednesday night. 

According to olemisssports.com, Sandronin was in his 26th season with the Ole Miss Radio Network and was handling the football sideline reports and Locker Room Show until his passing. In his career in Oxford, he had also announced men's and women's basketball games and served various other roles on the Ole Miss Radio Network. 

To honor Sandroni, the Ole Miss Radio Network has decided to have a silent microphone on the sideline for Saturday's home football game against Louisiana-Lafayette. 

Sandroni was also a sales representative for WQLJ-FM 93.7 in Oxford for several years and a co-host of Rebel Yell Hotline with Chuck Rounsaville. Sandroni was named Mississippi Sportscaster of the Year eight times, most recently in 2008. 

Before moving to Oxford, Sandroni was the play-by-play voice of Delta State University for 17 years. The Shaw, Mississippi, native was sports director at WCLD radio in Cleveland and then news and sports director of CBS affiliate WXVT-TV in Greenville. 

Sandroni is survived by his wife, the former Glenda Marascalco of Grenada, Mississippi, and son, Christopher, who attends Oxford High School. 

According to olemisssports.com, at this time arrangements are pending for visitation on Sunday night. The Mass of Christian Burial is at 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 15 at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Oxford.
