TUPELO -- The Columbus High School football team's original plan wasn't available Friday night. Turns out, the Falcons couldn't execute the backup plan, either.
WEST POINT -- The West Point High School football team broke its post-game huddle with two words: "state champs." Anyone watching West Point's game against Center Hill on Friday would have a hard time believing the Green Wave aren't the favorite to win another Mississippi High School Activities Association (MHSAA) Class 5A State title.
WEST POINT -- Marcus Murphy knows he runs the ball well.
It is finally here. Earlier in the season, Heritage Academy football coach Sean Harrison looked ahead to week seven and hoped to have everything in place for his team to hit its stride.
STARKVILLE -- Rodrigues "Dreke" Clark wouldn't be a running back if he didn't like touching the ball, but he isn't selfish. After getting a third of the carries in the Starkville High School football team's season opener against Noxubee County, Clark said he enjoyed watching fellow running backs Andreus Swanigan and KJ Lawrence run. Now Clark is being asked to supply the energy as the Yellow Jackets' featured back.
Kris Pickle had his mad scientist's hat on early Monday afternoon.

ALICEVILLE, Ala. - Aliceville High School moved to 3-0 in Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) play with a 36-0 win over Verbena Friday night.
MACON -- You can hear the frustration in Tyrone Shorter's voice. Shorter has seen nearly everything in his 20 years with the Noxubee County High School football program. He has seen injuries ravage his team early in the season only to have the Tigers emerge in the second half to win a state championship. Shorter also has seen plenty of offensive wizardry and defense dominance in his time as assistant coach/defensive coordinator and now as head coach.
Kris Pickle envisions a time in the not too distant future that his New Hope High School football team will be 100 percent healthy. While the Trojans slowly move forward to get all of their starters back in the lineup, other players are emerging to create depth Pickle believes will help the team make a push to the postseason.
