Starkville football

Starkville High School running back Amariyon Howard (23) runs through the West Point defense.

With time running down and West Point hoping to get a game-winning score, the Yellow Jackets were the ones to come up with the big play to win it. Senior lineman Ahmir Taylor stripped the football loose at the 15-yard line and it was picked up by Ja’carius Hendricks and returned for a score with less than a minute left sending the Starkville High School faithful home happy with a 40-28 win.
