Is recruiting a dotted line business?

November 26, 2012

I have been watching the NBC syndicated series “Friday Night Lights” the past couple of weeks. In the current season, the head coach for the fictional Dillon Panthers Eric Taylor, portrayed by Kyle Chandler, informs his players that any recruiting violations will hurt the player and team. Many of the recruiters for the universities push for Dillon’s top-rated running back, Smash Williams. The majority of these recruiters offer Smash special treatment, money, and even cars if he will chose to attend their university or college.

Wins against West Point hard to come by in 2012

November 26, 2012

The West Point Green Wave (11-3; 7-0) had a number of lopsided victories during the 2012 season.
One thing the team did not have was a lopsided loss.
Of the three blemishes on the West Point schedule, including Friday night’s season-ending loss to Starkville, the Green Wave did not lose by any more than six points in each defeat.
The first loss of the season came during week one against South Panola. The final score was 12-10 in favor of the hosting Batesville team.

Crawford finds home for art in West Point

November 26, 2012

Jane Crawford has had a love for glass since she was a young girl, staring into the intricate designs of the stained glass windows of her church.
“I’ve been a glassaholic for a very long time,” Crawford says. “I love glass. There are so many ways to express yourself in stained glass.”
Crawford ran a studio in Columbus for 12 years, but today she has found a new home in West Point. Her work is now on display and for sale at the Shops of the Community Commons on Highway 45.
Crawford put both hands in the air in celebration of her new display.

West Point falls just short to Starkville 29-28

November 24, 2012

Once again it was Starkville’s Gabe Myles who handed the Wave their final loss of the season. This time it took an overtime period to decide the team that got to travel to Jackson. Myles threw the overtime touchdown and ran in the winning two-point conversion to lead the Jackets past West Point for a second time in a row in postseason play.

Wave seeking redemption against Starkville

November 21, 2012

It was a hard fought affair the last time Starkville and West Point met in the playoffs.
A fourth quarter drive led by Starkville Quarterback Gabe Myles put out the then two-time defending 5A champions in West Point 20-14.
Last year was not the Wave’s year in the West Point-Starkville rivalry as the Yellow Jackets doubled up on the Green Wave. But in 2012, West Point won the regular season game in Starkville 47-22, and hopes to find redemption this year in the North Half Championship.
