Posted 12/3/2017 in High School Sports

OXFORD --It was fitting that, on a fourth-and-1 in what could have been the game-winning drive, Starkville High School handed it off to Dreke Clark. To that point, he had taken Starkville 172 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries, so giving him carry No. 29 to keep the game alive made sense.

STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State's 6-0 start to its men's basketball season has been missing a few things.

Posted 11/30/2017 in High School Sports

STARKVILLE -- Among Southeastern Conference head football coaches, a salary of $2.6 million would've ranked next to last in the 2017, beating only Missouri's Barry Odom (while excluding that of the conference's lone interim, Matt Luke).

MACON -- Tyrone Shorter remembers the conversation well. Earlier this season, after the death of offensive coordinator James Patterson hit the Noxubee County community and the high school football team hard, wide receiver Kyziah Pruitt came into Shorter's office in the field house.

Ware has become force up front for Starkville

Posted 11/30/2017 in High School Sports

STARKVILLE -- For once, getting to the quarterback didn't work out all that well for Jaylan Ware.

Columbus sweeps Noxubee County in basketball doubleheader

Posted 11/29/2017 in High School Sports

Columbus High School senior Casey Smith had a feeling it might be his night when he hit his first 3-pointer.
