STARKVILLE -- Breanna Richardson tried. She really did.
OXFORD -- More than once, Oxford High School quarterback Jack Abraham has been told he doesn't look, think, or act like a 10th-grader. On Friday night, he proved that observation correct by leading his team to a 30-20 victory against West Point at Bobby Holcomb Field.
REFORM, Ala. -- On a night aerial attacks were on full display, the Pickens County High School football team's defensive backs had their own agenda Friday night. It took a few minutes to get adjusted to the tall and speed Aliceville High receiving corps. But once they did, the Tornadoes were on a mission.
STARKVILLE -- The Starkville Academy football team had been pointing to a shutout for quite some time. The Volunteers finally accomplished that feat Friday night.
SCOOBA -- Todd Mays, Preston Baker, and Drew White shared a rare distinction. Each of those East Mississippi Community College players single-handedly outscored the entire Coahoma Community College team Saturday afternoon. For Mays and Baker that could be expected since both see time as a rusher and pass receiver.
The Columbus High School football team had its Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 6A, Region 2 opener against rival Starkville right where it wanted Friday night.
ABERDEEN -- Whether you played for or coached under him, there was always a belief instilled in every Bobby Hall-led squad that no matter how far behind, his team would somehow find a way to win.
Football is a game of matchups. How do your team's strengths and weaknesses match up with your opponent's strengths and weaknesses? How does your offensive line match up against the defensive line? How do your linebackers match up with your opponent's running backs?
CLARKSDALE -- The New Hope High School football team took a step backward in its growth process Friday night. New Hope saw a modest two-game win streak snapped in a 56-21 loss to Clarksdale in the Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A, Region 1 opener for both teams.
On paper, the matchup of two Class 1A, Region 3 teams with 1-3 records looked to contain the ingredients for a competitive matchup. Sometimes the records are deceiving. West Lowndes used a big game from running back Eric Harris and quarterback Justin Stephenson and scored early and often en route to a 41-2 victory against Ethel.
VERNON, Ala. -- The showdown is here. The Lamar County High School football team tuned up for its huge Alabama High School Activities Association Class 2A, Region 4 matchup against Aliceville this week by beating Berry 42-22 Friday night at George Bell Stadium.
