Newton native Stan Hindman named SEC Football Legend

BIRMINGHAM ( – Stan Hindman, one of the finest interior linemen in Ole Miss football history, has been selected as Ole Miss' representative for the 2014 class of Southeastern Conference Football Legends.

The SEC Legends Class includes 14 former SEC stars that have made a name for themselves as great athletes on the playing field.

Hindman was an offensive guard and linebacker for John Vaught's great Rebel teams from 1963-65. He excelled on and off the field, earning both All-America and Academic All-America honors. A three-time first-team All-SEC selection, he was named to the 1960s All-SEC team, the SEC Skywriters All-Time SEC team and the Ole Miss Team of the Century as he helped lead the Rebels to three bowl games and the 1963 SEC championship.

An NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipient in 1966, he was selected in the first round of the 1966 NFL Draft by San Francisco and played seven seasons with the 49ers. He went on to become a successful architect in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Hindman is a member of the Ole Miss Sports Hall of Fame (class of 1992) and the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame (class of 1988).

This year's class will be honored at the 2014 SEC Football "Weekend of Champions" Dec. 5-6 in Atlanta, Georgia. The annual SEC Legends Dinner presented by AT&T will be held Dec. 5 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta and the group will also be recognized prior to the SEC Football Championship Game, which will be held at the Georgia Dome on Sat., Dec. 6.
