STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen and senior defensive lineman Ryan Brown were among those who spoke at a memorial service on Thursday for a father and son who both played for the Bulldogs.

Keith Joseph Sr., 44, and Keith Joseph Jr., 18, were killed in a car accident last week nears Leakesville, Mississippi, while traveling to watch a high school where both of them also played in Pascagoula.

Joseph Jr. was a freshman defensive lineman on the current Mississippi State team while Joseph Sr. played linebacker for the Bulldogs from 1989 to '92.

Mississippi State assistant coaches Tony Hughes and David Turner, recruiting assistant Sleepy Robinson and Mullen's wife Megan also addressed the team and family. About 1,000 people attended the event at Humphrey Coliseum on campus.
