Produced by Jim Albritton | Batson Children's Hospital patient Jordan Morgan is named Children's Miracle Network Hospital Champion for Mississippi. The 13-year-old Clinton native will represent the state's only children's hospital at the White House, Walt Disney World and at numerous Batson events during his 2016-17 term.
Twelve Mississippi children represented the state's only children's hospital at three Ole Miss and three Mississippi State games this football season. They participated in coin tosses, appeared on Jumbotrons, were honored as kid captains and met players, referees, cheerleaders and a mascot or two.
And along with a team of volunteers, they promoted the sale of $5 "Our Kids Got Game" bracelets. The school-specific bracelets in blue and red or maroon and white include the hospital and team's logos, along with the "Got Game" slogan.
The bracelets and now T-shirts are popular at both Universities and at UMMC. They are available at several locations in Starkville, Oxford and Jackson and will be sold at Ole Miss and MSU baseball games. An online store will open soon.
