After a very long fall camp, both the East and West Oktibbeha County High School football teams lift the curtain on their 2013 football seasons Friday night.
STEENS -- Adjustments don't seem to faze Jay Jay Swanigan.
When New Hope High School hired its latest football coach -- Shawn Gregory back in March -- they wanted someone familiar with the program.
WEST POINT -- The challenge is simple: Run the ball when everyone knows you're the man.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State freshman wide receiver Fred Brown will not be suspended for the Southeastern Conference opener against Auburn.
STARKVILLE -- It's not a situation where the Mississippi State offensive staff doesn't know what formations are coming from their opponent.
SCOOBA - For Dontreal Pruitt, wearing a No. 1 on his football uniform is symbolic.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University football coach Dan Mullen said he expects fifth-year senior quarterback Tyler Russell to practice even though he hadn't taken a concussion test as of Monday afternoon.
Taylor Stafford's dream came true this weekend.
University of Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze won't take a lot from watching the film of the University of Texas' 40-21 loss to Brigham Young University.
STARKVILLE -- The Auburn University football team will have to reshuffle its first-team defense for its Southeastern Conference opener.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- University of Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper insists this Texas A&M University game is not about revenge.
Darrell Robinson gave new meaning to the term "workhorse back" when he played running back at Noxubee County High School.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University freshman wide receiver De'Runnya Wilson feels like a football player.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University football coach Dan Mullen said Sunday his quarterback situation is pretty simple.
STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State University offense took full advantage of playing an inferior opponent Saturday in the home opener.
STARKVILLE -- The maroon and white world were introduced to the talents of Ashton Shumpert 22 times Saturday afternoon. A week after not playing against No. 13 Oklahoma State University in a nationally televised game, the four-star tailback was told earlier in the week he'd see action against Alcorn State University in the Mississippi State University football team's home opener.
STARKVILLE -- Chris Jones still doesn't like to be called a defensive tackle. Mississippi State University's highly coveted, five-star recruit from Houston, who was the second-ranked prospect in the country according to 247Sports.com, drew his first start of his career Saturday in a 51-7 victory against Alcorn State University, but doesn't want the crowd of 55,085 at Davis Wade Stadium that watched the game to be fooled. He still sees himself as a defensive end with the Bulldogs.
MACON -- Wyatt Roberts needs no introduction in the state of Mississippi. The 6-foot, 200-pound right-hander has been a fixture at quarterback for the Louisville High School football team for the past three seasons. In that time, he has earned a reputation as the gunslinger of a high-powered offense and has polished his skills to the point he has given a verbal commitment to play quarterback for Jacksonville State (Ala.) University, a Football Championship Subdivision School.
MILLPORT, Ala. -- If at first you don't succeed, call on your defense and special teams to get things going. That was the motto of the Pickens County High School football team Friday night in its Alabama High School Athletics Association Class 1A, Region 5 opener against South Lamar.
