Week 1 of the high school football season is in the books. On this episode, Dalton and Brad take a look back at some of the notable results.
Dalton covered Tupelo’s win against Meridian (1:39), which wasn’t always pretty. The Golden Wave had too many turnovers and too many penalties, but Jaquerrious Williams led an effective rushing attack, and the defense made life hard for the Wildcats’ QB.
Brad made it down to the Pontotoc-Houston game (4:38). It was a tight one until the third quarter, when Pontotoc tailback Immanuel Vance scored three touchdowns en route to a 41-12 win. The Warriors played two quarterbacks, with Justin Carter having the stronger outing, and the defense hemmed in dangerous Houston QB Urriah Shepard.
In other action, Itawamba AHS, Shannon and Smithville all picked up wins (8:33). And so did Biggersville, which is led by the dynamic duo of Quamon Davis and Quonn Mayes (10:42).
Looking ahead, the guys preview some of this week’s key games: Tupelo at Corinth (12:11), Baldwyn at Booneville (13:38) and Oxford at Starkville (16:07).
The guys have some basketball news, too. The Lighthouse Thanksgiving Classic and the Tangle on the Trail tournaments both announced their lineups this week (17:00). There will be loads of talent at each event.
And finally, we have Athletes of the Week (21:24).
