Vols' new era off and running

July 26, 2010

Starkville Academy ended its first day of workouts Monday afternoon with dark, threatening clouds hanging over the practice field.
Quite an ironic scene, seeing as to how this was the day the sun had risen on a new era of Volunteer football.
"It's a completely different atmosphere out here than it was last year," said SA senior quarterback Kyle Henson. "It's more intense. Everybody is hollering and hooping. It's like everyone wants to be out here, it's not just something we're out here to do."

SHS begins practice seeking return trip to playoffs

July 26, 2010

Starkville High School head football coach Jamie Mitchell issued a challenge to his team at the end of the second of two practices to start the preseason on Monday.
The goal he emphasized for his first season with the Yellowjackets is making a return to the Class 6A playoffs.
Starkville was able to do that last year, but was dominated and eliminated in the first round by Madison Central 63-27.
Mitchell believes the playoffs is somewhere the Jackets are supposed to be and wants them to perform better when they get there.

Timberwolves begin practice with purpose

July 26, 2010

The West Oktibbeha Timberwolves began preseason football practice Monday morning with one purpose in mind.
One of the keys early for coach Adam Lowrey is getting the Timberwolves back in shape and the minds back on the game.
"It's hard to think about school and football when you are so excited to be out for the summer," Lowrey said. "Focusing on work is the thing we're looking to do this week."
After considering postponing the start of practice a day or two, Lowrey decided to go ahead and join other schools for the first official day high schools can begin drills.

SA’s Terrill pleased with work from team

July 26, 2010

Starkville Academy football coach Jeff Terrill has a pretty good idea what he has to work with this fall.
The challenge in his first year on the job at the private school is to figure out something about opponents.
It’s something Terrell intends to learn as the preseason progresses.

Starkville struggles in Dizzy Dean World Series

July 26, 2010

SOUTHAVEN – After a strong Saturday start at the Dizzy Dean World Series, Starkville’s 8-year-old All-Stars ran into trouble Sunday.
Playing two games in Southaven, Starkville fell to East Cherokee, Ga., 8-1, then lost to in-state foe Saltillo 16-6.
“We played pretty early in the morning so I think everyone was tired and worn out,” said Starkville head coach Shane Grantham. “Overall, we just had a bad day.”
Starkville’s struggles came just one day after a dominating 18-4 win over Oregon Park, Ga., in their DDWS opener.

Offense the focus for Eagles entering drills

July 26, 2010

Eupora’s Trae Embry was the Starkville Daily News Area Softball Coach of the Year. The Eagles’ Lee Berryhill took home SDN’s Area Baseball Coach of the Year honors.
So will head football coach Junior Graham begin staking his claim on the SDN’s postseason football award beginning with today’s first practice?
“Well, both (Embry and Berryhill) deserved the award, no doubt about it,” said Graham. “If you want to start comparing sports here at Eupora, we’re all very fortunate. We’re all very competitive in everything.”

Wolverines look to keep momentum

July 26, 2010

The East Webster Wolverines hope the momentum generated from their Class 2A playoff run in 2009 carries over into this season.
East Webster finished with a 7-7 record last season with a strong finish.
After defeating West Lowndes 24-0 to close the regular season, the Wolverines knocked off Coahoma County 33-8 and Calhoun City 28-14 before losing a 14-12 decision to Ackerman.
That positive ending gives East Webster coach Jimmy Carden something to build on as his squad prepares for its first practice of the preseason today.
