Ball hawk is the term used in football circles as a player who has the propensity to find the football.
When looking at the Mississippi State secondary, several players fit that billing.
The Bulldogs have 29 career interceptions among the likely four starters in the back end of the MSU defense.
There were two numbers, six and zero, that didn't rest well with Starkville Academy soccer coach Robert Gardner Tuesday afternoon.
The inability to defend the middle 60 yards for Starkville Academy led to a 6-0 loss to Jackson Prep at the Starkville Sportsplex soccer complex.
It was a successful return of head coach Lauren Love following the birth of her first child as the Starkville Lady Yellowjackets volleyball team defeated the Aberdeen Lady Bulldogs in straight sets Tuesday night.
With the victory, Starkville improved its record to 3-3.
The Starkville Academy Lady Volunteer softball team found a lead early, but were unable to hold onto it.
The Lady Vols fell to Parklane Academy 13-5 in five innings in game two of a doubleheader Tuesday afternoon at Lady Volunteer Field.
The defensive line and the secondary are ingredients that will make the Mississippi State defense strong this season.
Add the linebackers to the mix and the Bulldogs can be considered solid across the board.
MABEN - Lee Berryhill has already found out something about the East Webster Lady Wolverines three games deep into his tenure as softball coach.
The Lady Wolverines know how to come from behind.
East Webster rallied from a 4-3 deficit to defeat the Vardaman Lady Rams 8-4 in a lightning-shortened game Monday night.
COLUMBUS â€“ It was unclear how much Gabe Myles was going to play Saturday night.
When it was all said he done, he had taken every offensive snap for Starkville High School in its 14-0 victory over the New Hope Trojans in the New Hope Jamboree Saturday night.
"I feel more comfortable because I know the offense," Myles said. "It's my offense. I feel like I'm at home."
Mississippi State fans often talk of the days of dominate defense.
The Bulldogs have been pretty salty on that side of the ball throughout the schoolâ€™s history.
The Honey Badger took a hit last week.
As good as Tyrann Mathieu was on the football field, he could not avoid the off-the-field downfall that led to him being dismissed by the LSU Tigers on Friday.
LSU officials said that Mathieu was no longer a part of the team for breaking an athletic department rule.
EUPORA â€“ It has been quite a busy month for Kaley Harris, the new softball coach at Eupora High School.
That's how long Harris has been on the job at the Webster County school, taking over for Trae Embry, and one of her first tasks was managing the preseason Eupora Classic on Saturday.
Harris was running from field to field and making sure the tournament was on schedule.
