Mr. Marvin Brunson Robinson, 85, died Friday, August 8, 2014, at Baptist Medical Towers, Pensacola, FL.
Jameon Lewis is capable of making a big play at any time for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
He is listed as a wide receiver on the roster, but he can line up at running back or quarterback.
The Bulldogs even use Lewis in the kicking game.
The quarterbacks on the Mississippi State roster are doing their part this preseason of pushing each other to get better.
Situations like Saturday's scrimmage helped that process along.
With Dak Prescott, Damian Williams, Nick Fitzgerald, Elijah Staley and Josiah Phillips, there are no shortage of signal callers with the Bulldogs.
Putting on the pads and jerseys early on a Saturday morning can signal only one thing â€“ high school football season is around the corner.
"It means it is here," Starkville High quarterback Brady Davis said. "It is time to start and we are ready to get this season rolling."
Glenn Schmidt does not know how they did it, but somehow Starkville Academy managed to keep a secret until Friday night's Meet the Vols.
That secret was the honoring of longtime public address announcer Ron Hartness by naming the press box at J.E. Logan Field after him.
Nickoe Whitley was the nucleus of the Mississippi State safeties the last few seasons.Â
He made several big plays, including two big strip fumbles in the last two games of the regular season in 2013 to get the Bulldogs to a bowl game.
He's not there this year, but safeties coach Tony Hughes is confident someone will fill that void.
