Starkville High School football

Starkville High School’s swarming defense of Ronnie Randle (24), Ahmir Taylor (34) and Keyshawn Lawrence (10) wrap up an Oxford ball carrier.

A rollercoaster of production welcomed the Starkville Yellow Jackets in their first home game of the season against Oxford.

Hosting the Little Egg Bowl and looking to keep the trophy at home for the sixth-straight year, the Jackets started with a fury and ended in the same way. The moments in between were stressful for head coach Chris Jones, his staff and the fans, but the final score of 45-17 showed SHS got it done when it mattered.
