Northwest Rankin, SHS coaches are good friends

October 3, 2013

Coaches become friends frequently in the business and there are times when they have to stand on the opposite sideline from each other.
One of those situations takes place for the fifth time Friday night between Northwest Rankin's Pete Hurt and Starkville's Jamie Mitchell. The Cougars head down Highway 25 to play the Yellowjackets at 7 p.m.
"He's been a good friend and I have a lot of respect for him," Hurt said of Mitchell. "He's done a great job at Olive Branch and believe he's the one that got that program turned around. He's done a great job at Itawamba and has done a great job at Starkville. He's one of the best in the business."
Hurt first met Mitchell when he was the coach at Samford University and was recruiting in Mississippi.
Mitchell was helping coach James Sloan in Tupelo when Hurt made a recruiting trip into Lee County and signed several members of the Golden Wave during the 1990s.
