Aberdeen's Williams leads young team

Posted 1/3/2015 in High School Sports

For most football teams, leadership is expected immediately from the quarterback. For Aberdeen High School, the dynamics made that even more important. With as many as six sophomores starting some games on offense, the Bulldogs had to rely on the savvy veteran leadership of Josh Williams almost every snap.

 

 

Starkville girls edge New Hope

Posted 1/3/2015 in High School Sports

For New Hope High School girls basketball coach Laura Lee Holman, the switch came on at practice about two weeks ago. "The girls are buying in," Holman said. "They know what we can do. A couple of weeks ago, a couple of older players were showing the younger players what to do. There was a buy-in. You could see they were beginning to believe. Once you get the belief, that is a huge step forward." For the Lady Trojans, the next step is learning how to win.

Peers, friends remember Hughey

Posted 12/30/2014 in High School Sports

Glenn Schmidt knows a little about what motivated Stan Hughey. Over the years, Schmidt's Starkville Academy girls basketball teams tangled many times with Hughey's Oak Hill Academy squads. Every time, Schmidt found Hughey's Lady Raiders well prepared, tenacious, and hungry for a win -- just like their coach. After the games, Schmidt and Hughey didn't need to talk for hours to catch up or to exchange stories because they took comfort in the fact that they shared a special bond only coaches can appreciate. That's why Schmidt was just one of the people saddened Sunday to learn of Hughey's death.

Kiffin has had season of redemption at Alabama

Posted 12/30/2014 in College Sports

NEW ORLEANS -- Lane Kiffin was modest in his goals and complimentary about the team he'll be facing in the Sugar Bowl. He went on and on about how much he's learned from Nick Saban, while insisting it's no big deal when his boss yells at him. Very un-Kiffin-like, you might say.

 

 

Alabama's defense stressing clutch plays over statistics

Posted 12/29/2014 in College Sports

NEW ORLEANS -- Alabama football coach Nick Saban and defensive coordinator Kirby Smart have fielded some of the most formidable, suffocating defenses modern college football has seen since the pair arrived in Tuscaloosa together in 2007. The 2014 Crimson Tide defense won't likely be remembered among them. There have already been too many blown coverages and too many yards piled up by opponents. Yet Smart still likes the way his unit has responded when its margin for error was thinnest.
