Super Bowl winning Former Yazoo City High School and Mississippi State University standout defensive tackle Fletcher Cox of the Philadelphia Eagles was honored by the Mississippi Senate with Senate Concurrent Resolution 591 on Friday, February 23, 2018. In his first Super Bowl appearance, Cox anchored the defensive line as the Eagles earned their first Super Bowl Championship in franchise history. The Yazoo City native is the 21st former Bulldog to earn a Super Bowl Ring and the first since Dillon Day and the Denver Broncos hoisted the Lombardi Trophy in 2016. In total, Mississippi State alums have claimed 22 Super Bowl Rings.

The Eagles defeated the New England Patriots, 41-33, in Super Bowl 52 on February 4, 2018, inside U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Cox was also honored by the House of Representatives. After the presentation Cox took photos and signed autographs.
