Taylor Stafford's dream came true this weekend.
STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State University offense took full advantage of playing an inferior opponent Saturday in the home opener.
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.
WEST POINT -- The train was coming downhill all night. Sometimes it was the Oak Hill Academy Raiders' only weapon.

It was a wild ride Friday night as county rivals Columbus and New Hope high school faced off in what has come to be their annual rivalry game.
CALEDONIA -- Football is game of momentum. The team that has the momentum usually carries the day.
WEST POINT -- It was clear from the opening minutes of this annual rivalry game that the West Point High School football team's running attack was just too dominant for Starkville.
HATLEY -- The Hamilton High School football team made the most of its final tuneup before Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 1A play by shutting out Monroe County rival Hatley 42-0 on Friday night.
LOUISVILLE -- With spread offenses and passing attacks that are throwing the football 40-50 times a game running wild, one would expect the old-school approach under center with a fullback and running back to be a lost cause. Heritage Academy football coach Barrett Donahoe still believes in the old-school approach.
Columbus High School senior running back Kendrick Conner was well aware of the tight spot his team was in Friday night.
STEENS -- Junior quarterback JJ Swanagin connected with KC Cunningham on a 44-yard touchdown pass with 30 seconds left in the game Friday night to lead the Immanuel Christian School football team to an 18-15 victory against Carroll Academy.
WEST POINT -- For the second straight week, a defense loaded up the line of scrimmage to stop the West Point High School football team's vaunted running attack. For the second straight week that defense failed.
