As far as football this past weekend - mixed emotions. First the Raiders - without their starting QB (out for season with broken collarbone)-they looked horrible against KC and lost 28-0. Even with that though - they are only one game out of first in their division with 9 games to go - so.... fingers crossed. MSU had a bye week - so no news there. This coming weekend (Oct.29th) they play at Kentucky and Tyler Russell will get his second start - so again....fingers crossed.
Much better news on the SHS front. They pitched their first shut-out Friday - defeating Yazoo City 35-0. As a result the Jackson (MS) paper has moved them into their "Super 10" (regardless of class) at number 8 and among the 5A teams at Number 2. Starkville is 7-2 overall and undefeated (5-0) in Region 2-5A. As a result they have already clinched a play-off spot with 2 regular season games to go. They play Callaway (1-4 in Region 2-5A) at home Friday and then finish up at Neshoba Central (4-1 in Region 2-5A & currently tied for 2nd place). SOOOO - Go Jackets.
Everyone Have a great Day!
