Tyler Logan always looks to make an impact on the football field. As a starting defensive player for the West Point Green Wave, the senior understands the magnitude of Friday nights, and the actions it takes to win a football game.
But it is Logan's actions off the field that are worth noting and even more poignant for his family and the community.

Deuces wild: Hebron Christian claws Calvary

PHEBA – When Hebron Christian junior quarterback Channing Tapley surveys the field inside the pocket, he is confident that he will find one of his receivers in an open position. Tapley, who possesses a strong arm, has to find the right timing and needs crisp routes for success.
Junior Landon Hill, a 6-foot-4 wide receiver, provides that big target and those crisp routes.
Tapley, No. 22, and Hill, No. 2, are a prolific combination in the Eagles’ passing attack. “Deuces Wild” was unleashed on Friday night.

PHEBA — Hearne Foster, an assistant coach for Hebron Christian, suited up with a helmet and shoulder pads during the Eagles’ Wednesday afternoon practice.
After losing a player to a concussion last Friday, Hebron’s roster is smaller, but the team is finding solutions to continue the process of developing a winning formula for Friday nights.

Oak Hill searches for district win, plays Winston

September 12, 2014

DTL staff

The Oak Hill Raiders have had too many miscues in the past two weeks. Whether it was missed tackles against Marshall Academy in the second game at home or two second-half special team mishaps against Tri-County last Friday in Flora, Oak Hill has not overcome the negative swings of the game.
The Raiders are hoping to erase those problems with their first district win. That triumph could be difficult to come by, especially with Oak Hill’s third road trip of the campaign.

Wave looks to bounce back

Last season, the West Point Green Wave was stunned when the Columbus Falcons visited McCallister Field in West Point.
The Falcons racked up 41 points and hampered an Aeris Williams-led offense as the visitors from Lowndes County dispatched the Wave, 41-14, for the first time since Sept. 2, 2011.
West Point, however, is more concerned about getting a second win in the victory column and less worried about getting revenge for last season’s loss.

State of affairs: MSU downs scrappy UAB

STARKVILLE — A streak was snapped at Mississippi State’s game against the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
The streak was bound to end at some point, but it was not something that Head Coach Dan Mullen or Athletic Director Scott Stricklin would crack a smile about either.
A $75-million expansion in the north end zone, which added 8,815 seats, a seemingly overmatched opponent and temperatures in the 90s were not a great formula either.

PHEBA — Hebron Christian will line up against familiar foes in its third game of the season tonight. The Eagles will square off against the defending MAIS 8-man state champions, the Sharkey-Issequena Confederates, at 7 p.m. tonight in Rolling Fork.
The Eagles and the Confederates played two games together last season, both ending with Sharkey-Issequena as the victors. In those two games, the last meeting being the 2013 8-man North State championship game, the Confederates have blanked the Eagles by a combined score of 74-0.

Jaime Mitchell, the Starkville Yellow Jackets’ head coach, said the best games he has been a part of in his five-year tenure with the black and gold have come against the West Point Green Wave.
“You can bank on West Point being ready to play us,” Mitchell said. “The Starkville and West Point game will always give you your money’s worth. They are the toughest and most physical football team we will play all year. We are certainly going to have our work cut out for us.”
There is good reason that is the case.
