ACKERMAN â€“Â The Choctaw County Lady Chargers may be young, but they are talented.
Considering Choctaw Countyâ€™s 3-1 overall and 2-0 division start in volleyball, that seems to be a very fitting statement, but ask coach Gary Beals and he will tell you the season is just beginning.
Mississippi State was already going to have to replace a right tackle this season, but now they have another problem.
It was announced Monday that senior Damien Robinson was lost for the season after tearing his ACL.
Co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach John Hevesy feels comfortable in finding someone to fill the hole left by Robinson.
Defense could be the name of the game in Starkville this football season.
If what took place in preseason jamborees last weekend is any indication, opponents of the Starkville Yellowjackets and Starkville Academy Volunteers might not see very many points appear on their side of the scoreboard.
Never did more than two points separate Starkville High School and Madison Central at the end of a set during Tuesday night's volleyball match.
It was a true battle through and through, but at the end of the day, consistency and "hustle" paid off as the Lady Jaguars claimed a 3-0 victory (27-25, 25-23, 25-23).
Training camp is over for Mississippi State.
The last two weeks were spent at the farm, which were some of the roughest days of practices for the Bulldogs.
That part of the fall is over as school started Monday.Â
SCOOBA â€“ East Mississippi Community College sophomore running back Preston Baker would like to take his game to another level this season.
Freshman offensive lineman Jawon Johnson of the Lions wants to help Baker out with a block or two along the way.
The two former Starkville High School players expects to contribute this season for the defending national champions.
SCOOBA â€“ The East Mississippi Community College Lions will be turning to a player with a famous last name when it comes to the quarterback position this season.
Chad Kelly, the nephew of Pro Football Hall of Fame signal caller Jim Kelly, will take over the controls for the EMCC offense this season.
Coming out a tournament where multiple games were played no one would be surprised if a team's energy was a little low.Â
That was not the case with Starkville Academy's softball team. Instead the Lady Vols looked alive for the most part, but they just simply ran into a strong offensive front in Hebron Christian School and in the end, it was the Lady Eagles coming out on top 17-4.
Gabe Myles has yet to play in a game for Mississippi State, but the redshirt freshman has already been on both sides of the ball.
The former Starkville High School quarterback was recruited to play defensive back and that's where he practiced last season.
During December's bowl prep, the coaching staff decided to move Myles to the offensive side of the ball to play wide receiver.
Mississippi State's Rufus Warren didn't have any problem eating that second steak on Sunday.
Now that the junior has made the move from tight end to the interior offensive line, he has been given the "green light" to add to his food choices.
Warren did just that during the fourth annual "Beefin' Up the Bulldogs" held at the Seal Football Complex.
