MSU flag football team finishes second at national tournament

Posted 1/13/2017 in Local Sports

When a group of friends formed the co-ed flag football team Foot Clan at Mississippi State in 2015, they didn't know what was in store. After going through the 2015 season without a quarterback, Foot Clan stuck together and was ready for the 2016 campaign. After winning the co-ed championship at MSU, Foot Clan won a National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Regional championship on Dec. 3-4 in Hattiesburg on the campus of Southern Mississippi. Foot Clan rode the momentum and lost 19-6 to Valdosta State's P-Rex squad in the NIRSA Flag Football National Championship game Jan. 8 in Pensacola, Florida.

Hickman's 'gamble' pays off in victory

Posted 11/28/2016 in Local Sports

Riley Hickman's "gamble" paid off. The Cleveland, Tennessee, native has plenty of experience racing at Magnolia Motor Speedway, where track conditions are relatively consistent. Tire choice for Saturday's Possum Town Grand Prix, though, wasn't as easy as it normally is, Hickman said. Hickman chose hard compound tires all the way around, while the majority of the field, including second-place finisher Chase Washington, chose soft tires. The result was a smooth run through all 100 laps, a win, and $10,000 for Hickman.
