Most high school football players went to bed Tuesday night knowing for sure where the next stop would be to continue their high school football careers.
There were some who slept on it.
As National Signing Day takes place across the nation, there are several local schools taking part.
Starkville High School has eight football players taking their talents to the next level.
Rick Ray is pretty familiar with in-state rivalries.
The first-year Mississippi State head coach spent three years at Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind. The rivalry between the Boilermakers and the Indiana Hoosiers is one of the biggest rivalries in college basketball.
Starkville Academy's Tiffany Huddleston plans to sign a scholarship to play soccer at Mississippi State today.
On the even of one of the biggest moments of her life, Huddleston showed she is pretty good on the basketball court as well.
Huddleston led the Lady Volunteers with 16 points and six steals during a 74-36 victory over the rival Heritage Academy Lady Patriots Tuesday night.
The goal for the Starkville Academy boys basketball's team all season has been to finish with a winning record.
They took one step closer Tuesday night.
Starkville Academy hung to a 46-40 victory over the Heritage Academy Patriots inside the Starkville Academy Gymnasium.
The Volunteers moved their record to 15-13 for the season.
MATHISTON â€“ It was senior night under the lights basketball for the East Webster Wolverines Tuesday.
was the star as the Wolverines welcomed area rival Eupora to town for senior night.
The Lady Wolverines and Lady Eagles took the court first and East Webster scored the double digit victory 43-28.
Mississippi State junior guard Candace Foster had an expected reaction when she learned that women's basketball coach Vic Schaefer was pleased with her effort on the court.
"Praise the Lord," Foster said.
For anyone who knows Foster, those words are not surprising coming from her.
It felt like home.
That's why Logan Foulks decided to transfer to Mississippi State to play softball.
While growing up in Douglasville, Ga., Foulks remembers seeing some of the same things that are in Starkville.
"You come in and see the ponds, pastures and lakes," Foulks said. "I fell in love even before I saw the campus."
Foulks was also welcomed quickly by the coaches and players.

Once again, Valentine's Day is almost upon us. This "holiday" of sorts is the perfect time to show your significant other how much he or she means to you and what better place to do that than in the kitchen.

You are in for a treat today, dear readers.
I was skeptical about running one of my favorite recipes in the Taste section because I wanted to keep this one to myself, but on such a special occasion, I must acknowledge this delicious dish passed on to me by my mother who celebrates a birthday today, Feb. 6.
