Posted 9/18/2010 in High School Sports

Posted 9/18/2010 in High School Sports

Myres Virden rushed for 137 yards and four touchdowns Friday to lead the Madison-Ridgeland Academy football team to a 34-6 victory against Heritage Academy on what turned out to be a somber evening. News that 17-year-old Heritage Academy student Spencer Perkins, who shot himself earlier in the week in a hunting accident in Noxubee County, died Friday night in Jackson, spread throughout the field and left many in the Patriots' family shaken.

 

 

Green Wave too much for Tigers

Posted 9/18/2010 in High School Sports

WEST POINT -- If the flags were legitimate, the Noxubee County football team had some of the best players on the West Point High team Friday night. In a 28-13 loss to the defending Class 5A state champions, Noxubee County was penalized 18 times for 111 yards. First-year head coach Tyrone Shorter stopped short of blaming the referees afterward and conceded his team needs to mature.

 

 

Stevens sparks Oak Hill Academy

Posted 9/18/2010 in High School Sports

PHEBA -- You don't often see quarterbacks receiving punts or kicks. But Oak Hill Academy football coach Leroy Gregg doesn't have the same luxuries as most coaches in the state of Mississippi. But Gregg also doesn't have a player who is as versatile as Jeb Stevens.

 

 

Starkville Academy falls to JA, remains winless

Posted 9/18/2010 in High School Sports

STARKVILLE -- Records and final scores don't tell the whole story about the Starkville Academy football team. On Friday night, the winless Volunteers didn't back down against defending state champion Jackson Academy. Even though the final score -- 42-14 in favor of the Raiders -- didn't go their way, the Volunteers eliminated their opponent's big-play ability and kept the score within reach before a costly fumble late in third quarter.

 

 

Aberdeen rolls past Okolona

Posted 9/18/2010 in High School Sports

ABERDEEN -- After starting the season with a disappointing loss to Class 6A Columbus, all is well with Aberdeen High School football coach Chris Duncan.

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

Gutcheck time for Heritage Academy

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

It will be gutcheck time from here on out for the Heritage Academy football team. Judging from last week, the Patriots just might be on the move toward the program's first winning season since 2005. To accomplish that goal, Heritage Academy (3-1) will look to capitalize on the momentum it earned last week in a victory against Lamar School at 7 tonight when it plays host to Madison-Ridgeland Academy (1-2).

 

 

Columbus will try to build momentum against Louisville

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

One victory doesn't make a season. Tony Stanford hasn't had to preach that message this week because his Columbus High School football players haven't appeared to change following their first big victory of the 2010 season.

 

 

No hype needed for Noxubee County-West Point

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

Another week. Another rivalry matchup for the West Point High School football team. Not that coach Chris Chambless minds, but coming off a heart-breaking 21-20 loss to Starkville High, he knows the importance of bouncing back at 7:30 tonight against Noxubee County (4-0). Chambless watched his team blow a 20-0 lead against the Yellow Jackets, turn the ball over three times in the second half, and commit four personal foul penalties in the loss. Carrying that lack of discipline into district play, which begins in a week, isn't ideal for a team looking to repeat as Class 5A state champions.
