The MHSAA football state championships are being held this weekend in Starkville, and three area teams will be in action. On this episode, Brad and Blake take a look at each matchup.
In Class 2A, Calhoun City takes on Bay Springs (1:50), with Jessie Nabors and Jojo Gray leading the Wildcats’ potent offense. Bay Springs knocked off four-time defending state champ Bassfield to get here, so Calhoun City’s stingy defense will need to come up big.
Lafayette and Poplarville both bring 12-game winning streaks into the 4A final (7:07). The Commodores kept a high-octane Pontotoc offense in check last week, and it will be tested this weekend by a run-heavy Poplarville attack.
And in 5A, West Point faces Laurel (12:35). The Green Wave offense has a different wrinkle this year, with transfer quarterback Clayton Knight’s passing ability augmenting a normally run-centric scheme.
Also today, the guys present Athletes of the Week (21:15).
