Eagles hope new plays, rest lead to first win

September 2, 2011

Thirteen days between games may seem like an eternity for any football team, but for Hebron, it gives them plenty of time to rest, refocus and maybe even install a new offense. A few more plays here and there.
“We have been putting a lot more of a variety of plays on offense,” first year head Tri Nason said. “We’re going to be doing a little more passing this week.”
Nason said that QB Will-Corben Rogers, who was 3-of-5 passing for 39-yards in week one’s loss to Strider, made some big leaps and is feeling a little more comfortable running the new passing plays.

Raiders hungry to get back on track

September 2, 2011

Oak Hill Academy isn’t off to the best of starts in 2011. The Raiders are 0-2 and have scored just two touchdowns this season.
Head coach Benjie Merchant knows it’s going to be a tough first season early on, but the question is how long will it be before they can turn things around.
‘We’re just not ready to play in that caliber of a game yet,” Merchant said in reference to last week’s 41-6 loss to Winston Academy.

WP ready for rivals Columbus

September 2, 2011

West Point is no doubt excited about tonight.

After a week long-plus layoff, the Green Wave hope to bounce back on the road and get a victory over Columbus.

The last time the two teams met it was the Green Wave riding a 24-6 victory back in 2009, the first of 14 consecutive wins for West Point on their way to the first of back-to-back 5A state titles.

Hopefully history will repeat itself.

Head coach Chris Chambless is just ready to get back out on the field.

Lions top MGCC 34-30, Cox shines in debut

September 2, 2011

SOOBA - What a way to make a debut.

Former West Point standout Justin Cox made a good first impression Thursday night swiping three interceptions, including a game saver with seconds remaining, to help East Mississippi topple Mississippi Gulf Coast 34-30 in the season-opener for both teams.

It was a special night for the Lions who were unveiling the new $4.7 million, 5,000-seat Sullivan-Windham Field.

But for Cox it was definitely memorable. He finished with three of the Lions four picks on defense in a game that lived up to the hype.
