Prep editor Brandon Speck joins Brad Locke as guest co-host this week. There’s plenty of basketball going on, and the guys will discuss Tupelo’s boys (1:30), last weekend’s Pontotoc’s Tangle on the Trail tournament (4:19), and the upcoming county tournaments (10:43). Brandon also talks about two area football recruits who are highly sought by both Ole Miss and Mississippi State (12:54), and Brad presents the Athletes of the Week (16:34).
This week, Gene and Brad are joined by Oxford Citizen sports editor John Davis, who looks back at Mississippi’s win in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star Game. The Magnolia state squad snapped a seven-game losing streak and got big performances from receivers DK Metcalf (Oxford) and AJ Brown (Starkville). Other topics include Oxford QB Jack Abraham reopening his recruitment, Booneville basketball, and our Athlete of the Week.
On this week’s episode of Prep Rally, Brad and Gene take a look back at the MHSAA football state championships from last weekend, including the wild ending to the Oxford-Wayne County 5A final. Also, Ricky Woods won yet another ring, this time with Starkville. And the guys talk basketball as well, with some big early season games and tournaments on tap.
