Rivalry: SHS, West Point game holds special meaning

September 6, 2013

Starkville's Darius Grayer (25) take a handoff during the second of two meetings last year with West Point. Grayer suffered an injury late in the game against Oxford last Friday, but it's the hope of coach Jamie Mitchell that he will be available for tonight's game against West Point. (SDN file photo)

There are rivalry games and then there are RIVALRY games.
The football coaches at Starkville and West Point High Schools didn't have to say very much to their players this week.
All the Yellowjackets and Green Wave had to do is take a glimpse of the schedule and understand it's time to face each other in another special game. Kickoff for tonight's latest encounter in the series will be in West Point at 7 p.m.
