Coming out a tournament where multiple games were played no one would be surprised if a team's energy was a little low.Â

Gabe Myles has yet to play in a game for Mississippi State, but the redshirt freshman has already been on both sides of the ball.

Mississippi State's Rufus Warren didn't have any problem eating that second steak on Sunday.

Starkville High School football coach Jamie Mitchell is looking for a few good men today.
When his Yellowjackets face fellow Class 6A member Terry in jamboree action at Mississippi State's Davis Wade Stadium, Mitchell sees it as an evaluation tool.
Mitchell admits that he does not know much about Terry, but the opponent won't be the most important thing on his mind at 5 p.m.
Starkville Academy head football coach Jeff Terrill was happy to see his team respond and do well in the first chance for the Volunteers to go against an opponent Friday night.
Even though Starkville Academy found it to be easy at times during a 34-0 two-quarter jamboree victory over Noxapater, Terrill warned not to get too excited over the outcome.
