As the holiday season continues to roll along through the new year, Starkville residents may find themselves looking for tips to begin or maintain healthy eating and exercise habits.Â
OCH Wellness Connection Director Eddie Myles said he called this time of year the â€śhibernation monthsâ€ť when the weather is much cooler and people are less inclined to get out and exercise.Â
Football players like Gabe Myles don't come along very often.
Starkville High School coach Jamie Mitchell was able to put the talents that Myles possessed to good use the last two years.
The Starkville Yellowjackets have seen progress in the last three football seasons with Jamie Mitchell as coach.
After finishing with a 5-6 record and missing the playoffs in Mitchell's first season, the Jackets went 12-3 and lost to Picayune in the Class 5A State title game, then SHS completed the deal with a 28-11 victory over Pascagoula to bring the State title home.
The stateâ€™s takeover of the Oktibbeha County School District took Gale Shumaker by surprise.
The Starkville High Yellowjackets have one last Christmas gift for their basketball fans this week.
Beginning Wednesday and running through Friday, the Jackets will host the â€śTravis Outlaw Slam Dunk at the Humpâ€ť boys basketball tournament.
