Preston Baker

SCOOBA – Preston Baker turned 19 on Thursday.
It turned out to be a bittersweet birthday.
The East Mississippi Community College freshman running back accounted for two touchdowns but was injured on the last play of the game as the No. 5 Lions rolled past Southwest Mississippi Community College 69-0.
"I had a great birthday, got some presents at lunch, had a nap in the afternoon and I'm on a 3-0 football team, so I'm happy," Baker said.
EMCC head coach Buddy Stephens didn't have an update on Baker's status after the game. It appeared that he suffered an injury to his right leg.
Baker, a former Starkville High School standout, finished the night with 61 yards on 10 carries. He caught three balls for 57 yards and two scores.
