Last Spring, Hebron Christian School was preparing for an 11-man football season.
Now the Eagles will be forced to drop down and play eight-man. With just 11 players on the roster, Hebron made the call last Thursday and informed MAIS officials they were playing 8-man this fall, something they haven't done in years.
Head coach Tri Nason, said enrollment is not an issue.
"We just don't have the manpower, " he said. "We have the guys in school to play, they are just not playing."
Mamie Allen didn't have the stuff she displayed in Oak Hill's season opening win over Heritage Academy last Friday, but then again, she really didn't need it.
Oak Hill rallied for three runs in the third inning Monday night to pick up their second consecutive win over an MAIS Class AAA school after defeating Starkville (1-3) Academy 4-1.
"It was an ugly win," head coach Marion Bratton said. "But we made some plays when we had to. Our selection on some of our choices for outs wasn't quite what we practiced."
