OPPOSING VIEWPOINT: PCS football has reputation of scoring points

October 24, 2012

The Starkville Academy Volunteers will have their hands full when they face Presbyterian Christian School Friday night at 7 p.m.

PCS has put on an offensive show this season, averaging just shy of 35 points per game.

“PCS is one of the best teams in the state,” SA head coach Jeff Terrill said. “They are probably the fastest team we will play all year. It will be a struggle for us defensively.

“Their defense has given up points. This will allow us to play a little more ball control which is more our style.”

With an overall record of 8-2 and a region record of 2-1, the Bobcats only losses have come at the hands of Jackson Academy 21-12 and Jackson Prep 24-7.

The Volunteers enter the home game with a 5-5 record after their 34-29 region loss to East Rankin Academy.

Presbyterian Christian and Starkville Academy have met once before, with the Bobcats claiming a 21-3 victory in Hattiesburg last season.

Callaway's personnel proves scary

It wasn't the intent of Starkville High School football coach Jamie Mitchell to get spooked with still a few days left before Halloween.

That's exactly what happened when he caught a glimpse of this week's opponent on film. The Yellowjackets travel to meet the Callaway Chargers in Jackson Friday at 7 p.m.

"The more you look at them on film and they are a scary, scary group," Mitchell said. "You know it's just a matter of them putting it all together. You hope this week is not the week because they are a talented group of players."

Callaway (5-4 overall, 3-2 Class 5A, Region 2, District 6) has rushed for 101.3 yards per game and passed for 132.8 yards per game.
Jabari Woodcox leads the Chargers in rushing with 610 yards on 98 carries and nine touchdowns.

Callaway uses a two-quarterback system with T.J. Washington completing 25-of-57 pass attempts for 344 yards and four touchdowns, then Chris Mitchell completing 35-of-63 pass attempts for 568 yards and four scores.

After starting the region schedule with three wins against Provine 19-13, Neshoba Central 26-25 and Lanier 60-0, the Chargers have lost to Ridgeland 31-20 and Canton 14-8.
