Posted 11/25/2015 in High School Sports

MACON -- Tyrone Shorter doesn't get surprised by a lot of things. Earlier in the season, the Noxubee County High School football coach was caught off guard by the length of his team's winning streak in Class 4A, Region 4 (21 games). Aside from that, though, Shorter usually is in tune with the Tigers, knows all of their statistics, and what everybody is saying about his program.

Posted 11/22/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- It doesn't matter whether you prefer the term shooter or scorer. Let's agree those players are a different breed. When asked to describe their craft, some will shrug their shoulders and attribute their success to hours of practice in the gym, while others will say that they been blessed with a gift. So how does it feel to be in one of those "zones" when everything you send toward the rim goes in?


Noxubee County comes together to beat Houston

Posted 11/22/2015 in High School Sports

HOUSTON -- Protect the quarterback is an adage as old as the game of football. Quincy Stokes has to be old school. The Noxubee County High School senior offensive lineman eschews the contemporary accessories so many players make part of their game day wardrobe. Stokes prefers to lace them up and go, shirts untucked regardless of their color.


The Pavilion at Ole Miss will serve multiple functions

Posted 11/22/2015 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Ross Bjork set out to ensure that The Pavilion at Ole Miss would be more than just a basketball facility. Instead of building a new and bigger arena with all of the latest amenities, Bjork and the Ole Miss administration wanted something that served as a front door for the athletic department and a facility that could be integrated into the day-to-day life of everybody on campus.


West Lowndes will go on road to face No. 1 Simmons

Posted 11/20/2015 in High School Sports

Lavante Porter isn't surprised the West Lowndes High School football team is one of the last eight standing in Class 1A in the state. Porter is in his fourth year as a key contributor for the Panthers, so he has seen plenty of talented players come through the program. While there are plenty of weapons on the 2015 team, Porter said the difference between this year's group and past squads is the talented individuals have decided to become part of a team.

Conner's dart to Mason lifts Noxubee Co. past Lafayette Co.

Posted 11/15/2015 in High School Sports

MACON -- Four-man fade likely will go down as one of the biggest plays in Noxubee County High School football history. It shouldn't be surprising that Kymbotric Mason and Timorrius Conner were involved in the play, or that it was a pass completion between a junior wide receiver and senior quarter back that sealed Noxubee County's 20-13 victory against Lafayette County. After all, this is Noxubee County, a program that has earned a reputation for having an explosive passing attack.

Posted 11/13/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Hesitancy can cripple a shooter.

That will change at 7 tonight when West Lowndes (8-4) plays host to Ray Brooks in the first round of the Mississippi High School Activities Class 1A playoffs.
