"Our team is hurting tonight with the loss of Park," Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said in a statement Wednesday night. "He was a tremendous young man that was loved by his teammates and coaches, and Rebel Nation will never forget him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Stevens' family, his friends, our team and all those he touched during his life."

Stevens joined the Rebels in this past spring as a preferred walk-on after spending two seasons at East Central Community College. The 6-foot-6, 350-pound right guard was 20 years old.
 
Funeral arrangements will be held Saturday, and his coaches and teammates will serve as honorary pailbearers.
