Starkville Academy football

Starkville Academy captains Sam Clark (18) and Ben Brown (16) participate in the pregame meeting against Lamar School.

It was a marked improvement from the first game to the second for the Starkville Academy Volunteers.

After a 33-13 loss to Lamar School in the season opener, the Vols buckled down at French Camp last Friday and secured a 23-0 shutout win over the Panthers.

“We’re just taking it one week at a time,” Starkville Academy wide receiver/defensive back Sam Clark said. “We got better in the second week. We took it up a notch.”
