Starkville's 8th graders get victory

September 12, 2013

The Starkville 8th grade football team was looking for a big play in the closing minute of Thursday afternoon's game against Tupelo at home.
With the score tied at 6-6 and overtime a possibility, Starkville had the football on the 46-yard line.
That's when Jacket 8th grade coach Steve Denson pulled a play out of the book that's seldom used to get in a position to score.
Jalen Ware took a pitch and tossed a 37-yard pass to Natrone Brooks to the 9-yard line.
On the next play, quarterback Demetrius Petty found Darius Brooks with the touchdown pass with 5 seconds remaining. Andreus Swanigan added the two-point conversion run and Starkville defeated Tupelo 14-6.
