Carr “humbled” by Gator Bowl TD catch

January 3, 2011

On Saturday, the Mississippi State Bulldogs (9-4) finished off a fine season by capturing a 52-14 victory over Michigan in the Progressive Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla.
Helping to put the icing on the cake was former West Point standout Michael Carr. Carr’s 31-yard touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter of the blowout might have gotten lost in the other six MSU scored on the day, but the score was more than just six points to the freshman.
It was Carr’s first career college touchdown.

Facing the Lady Wolverines of East Webster, the Lady Eagles came out on top 57-35, in spite of a first-half power outage that delayed the contest for over an hour.

The Hebron Christian Eagles spent nearly all four quarters of Monday morning’s game with Tupelo Christian shaking off the rust of the Christmas break, but they finally did so and barely slipped past the opposing Eagles team 54-53.
Tupelo swished a three-point shot at the buzzer, but thanks to a pair of free throw shots sunk by Carlton Clay second earlier, it was unable to do any damage to the Hebron lead.

The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles ran into some tough competition and tough luck down the stretch of the first half of the 2010-2011 regular season. That last week of action, however, is not how the first portion of the season should be remembered.
The Lady Eagles faced arguably the top girls hoops program in the state in Leake Academy, and they turned right back around and played the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders, who entered the season at No. 4 in the state, and have been playing up to that ranking as of late.

The Eagles said going into the season that they would have an offense built around seniors Carlton Clay and Chad Smith.
Clay and Smith have not disappointed anyone so far this season, but there is more to this team than those two guys.

The West Point Green Wave football team dedicated their 2010 state championship title to the West Point community when they won the trophy three weeks ago. West Point head coach Chris Chambless said that was largely due to how much the community had given the program during such a poor economy.
On Tuesday, members of that Green Wave championship team had a chance to give back to the community, by giving a local family some much-needed gifts for Christmas through the Adopt a Family program.

“We have the ability to ware people down,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey, whose team has won eight straight. “I’m really proud of that bunch. They gave us a really good effort.”
