Class 5A and 6A teams open division play this Friday, which means there are some big games on tap.
Dalton previews Tupelo’s 1-6A opener at Hernando (5:25). The Golden Wave are 4-0 behind a strong running game. Meanwhile, Saltillo kicks off 1-5A play at unbeaten Olive Branch (9:55), and will be doing so without starting quarterback Tytus Heard, who broke his leg last week.
Brad also previews a non-division tilt between 4A schools Shannon and Clarksdale (7:43). The Red Raiders saw their QB, Jordan Gilleylen, suffer an injury last week, but he could be back Friday.
In looking back at Week 5, Dalton notes Oxford’s dominant defensive performance against Pontotoc (2:14); Brad looks at Kossuth’s blowout of New Albany (3:40); and the guys discuss Saltillo’s comeback win against Baldwyn (4:49).
As the season reaches its halfway point, a debate has bubbled up: Who is the best team in Northeast Mississippi, Tupelo or West Point (11:26)?
Also today, Brad presents Athletes of the Week (13:38).
