Garrett Rehms of Vidalia High and Jarvis Brooks of Ferriday High are nominees for the Miss-Lou Chapter National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame's banquet on February 23, 2012 in Natchez.
The banquet will be the 31st for the local chapter.
Rehms and Brooks will be eligible for scholarships ranging $1,000 to $3,000.
Rehms played wide receiver for the Vikings,
Brooks played running back and was named Parish Player of the Year,
Trinity Episcopal nor Adams County Christian School have not named its representative yet.
Cathedral's nominee is tackle Dakota Vaughan.
Natchez High's nominee is offensive tackle Greg Jackson.
Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze, who is leading the Rebels into the BBVA Compass Bow on Jan. 5, 2013 in his first season as coach, is the featured speaker for the banquet.
The Rebels experienced a dramatic turnaround under Freeze, going 6-6 after a 2-10 campaign last year.
Freeze is the sixth Ole Miss head coach to guide the Rebels to a bowl in his first season at the helm.
Freeze inherited a team with a 14-game conference losing streak, projected to finish last in the SEC West in the preseason, and led the Rebels to three SEC wins and three near misses.
"This is something that I really enjoy doing," Freeze said of the banquet in Natchez. "I simply enjoy talking about life at banquets, churches and various places."
Past speakers include Ron Roberts, Houston Nutt, Sylvester Croom, Ed Orgeron, Glenn Davis, David Cutcliffe, Bobby Collins, Jackie Sherrill, Mike Archer, Archie Manning, Curley Hallman, Jerry Stovall, Emory Bellard, Bill Arnsparger, Billy Brewer and Rocky Felker.
