JACKSON — West Point football coach Chris Chambless knows it could have been “the season that never was.”
Not much about the 2020 season has been normal for coach Chris Chambless and the West Point football team.
Losing has never been normal for the four-time state champion Green Wave, but they had to deal with it Friday at Starkville.
WEST POINT — Early this season, while West Point running back Dantariyus Cannon battled nagging injuries, fellow senior Brandon Harris shouldered the load.
MACON — The week before one of the biggest rival games on his team’s schedule, Noxubee County High School football coach Tyrone Shorter decided to try somebody new at quarterback.
Chris Chambless believes.
The West Point High School football coach believed in his team after a season-opening loss to South Panola.
That confidence didn’t waver after an overtime loss at Columbus the following week.
WEST POINT — The Starkville High School football team handed West Point its only defeat before the Green Wave marched to their second Class 5A state championship in a row last season.
West Point made amends for that setback Friday night with a dominating defensive performance in a 33-12 victory at McCallister Field.
The murderer’s row scheduling for the Starkville and West Point high school football teams won’t let up anytime soon.
If possible, the Starkville-West Point rivalry will ratchet up the strength of schedule for both squads when they meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday in West Point.
Damian Baker’s 10-yard touchdown run lifted the Columbus High School football team to a 35-27 overtime victory against West Point in a non-region prep thriller Friday night at Falcon Field.
Pardon the players and coaches at Columbus and West Point high schools if they feel like the 2011 season is going in slow motion.
Each team had an atypical open date last week in the second week of the season. They will get back to action at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Falcon Field in Columbus.
