We’ve got a little bit of everything on this episode of Prep Rally.
Baseball season is well underway, with division play just cranking up. Northeast Mississippi produced five of the six state champions last season, and the guys offer quick previews of those teams: TCPS in Class 1A, East Union in 2A, Kossuth in 3A, Houston in 4A, and Oxford in 5A (1:28).
Blake took in Tupelo’s division opener win over South Panola on Tuesday (6:32), while Gene was out at Tupelo softball (9:22). The Lady Wave look especially strong this year, and Gene mentions a few other area teams to keep an eye on.
In hoops, Oxford’s Jarkel Joiner filled up the nets one last time in leading Mississippi to victory in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star Game (12:24). While he’s headed to college, there are several good players returning next year in both boys and girls (15:11).
We’ve got football, too, as Gene gives an update on the recruitment of Tupelo linebackers Jett Johnson and Peter Gray (20:22). Gene also has a quick preview of next week’s Journal Relays track and field event (23:19).
And finally, we present the Athletes of the Week (25:13).
