STARKVILLE, (AP) — Mississippi State’s Tyler Russell is a nervous wreck no more.
The backup quarterback showed plenty of cool as he tied a school record with four touchdown passes, leading the Bulldogs to one of their best offensive performances in a thorough 49-7 win over Memphis on Saturday night.

OXFORD, (AP) — On the final crazy play of a crazy game, Jacksonville State running back Calvin Middleton found himself in the middle of a mass of bodies as quarterback Coty Blanchard lofted a 2-point conversion pass toward the end zone.
Somehow, through the arms and legs, Middleton came down with the football as the Gamecocks celebrated a stunning 49-48 victory over Mississippi in double overtime.

Eagles getting healthy, ready to play again

September 2, 2010

When the 2010 season started, Hebron head coach Greg Watkins knew that the first few weeks were going to be tough. Although numbers were up for the Eagles, the roster began with less than 20, and the team needs the first few games to adjust before district play starts.
That’s still about a month away, and the Eagles are a good ways from being ready to compete for a playoff spot, but they are getting there, week by week and quarter by quarter.

Lady Raiders dig deep for vital district victory

Oak Hill’s Lady Raiders thought they had two strikes against them before they even loaded the bus for district rival, Winston Academy, Monday afternoon. Veteran pitcher Mamie Allen and all-around standout, Tori Ellis, would both spend the game on the bench with injuries.
Maegen Ellis took the pitching circle for Allen and Coach Marion Bratton moved his outfielders around to compensate for Tori Ellis’s loss, putting Codi Williams in right field and moving Anne Stevens to left field. Meg McBrayer moved up to play third base for Maegen Ellis.

West Point players represent community well

September 1, 2010

Daytona Beach told the West Point community several months ago that they were going to be as hospitable as possible when the Green Wave came down to play Mainland High School.
The city lived up to that promise, and the Green Wave football players lived up to their promise to be great guests while in the ocean front community.
West Point head coach Chris Chambless and his 16 assistant coaches took 81 high school football players on a three-day trip, which included two 13 drives, and he could not help but brag on his kids’ behavior over the weekend.

New Green Wave site a hit during team’s road trip

September 1, 2010

In the past, Green Wave fans who were unable to make it to road games could listen to Bud Bowen do his signature play-by-play on the radio, but they would have to wait for the 10 o’clock news for even the smallest video glimpse of what went on.
Last Friday night’s road game was probably the longest West Point has ever taken, and if one was not a part of the 300-plus crowd in the visitor’s section at Daytona Municipal Stadium, today’s multimedia was almost essential to get the game.

Chambless credits coaches for success

September 1, 2010

Whether fans were listening to the radio or following Friday night’s game in Daytona on the internet’s live stream, spectators of West Point’s 14-0 win over the Buccaneers only got to see a small part of the puzzle that was the Green Wave’s weekend.
The ride down and the ride back were both around a baker’s dozen hours each. There were 81 players, and there was only so much space to go around.

Diamond Eagles strand 13, fall in extras

September 1, 2010

The Hebron Christian Diamond Eagles out-hit the Lady Patriots of Marshall Academy on Monday night 7-3. When the final score was tallied, however, the Holly Springs team took the home win 2-1 in extra innings.
“I could tell in the first inning we didn’t come to play,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “We were slow with the bat all day. We weren’t striking out just were not driving the ball and there was really no reason for that except lack of focus.”

Entire weekend turns out to be a success

August 31, 2010

I’ve had some exciting weekends in my life. I can remember going on some pretty memorable college road trips, great family vacations and even some recent vacations that were pretty fun filled.
None of those road trips, however, compare with the the 72-plus hours that passed last weekend.
The West Point Green Wave were scheduled to play their biggest regular season road game in years in Daytona Beach Fla. Friday night, and there was no way I was going to miss that.

Flemming leads Hebron past Lady Cougars

Last week’s loss to Starkville Academy snapped a four-game win streak for the Lady Eagles of Hebron Christian School. The 9-4 beating by the Lady Vols did not get Hebron down for too long though.
Last Thursday, Calhoun Academy came to town for a visit, and it was a short one. The Lady Eagles got back into the win column with a 17-1 victory over the Lady Cougars.
“I thought we played well,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “With 14 hits and seven of them being for extra bases, we seem to be swinging the bat hard.”
