This week’s football slate is highlighted by some important division games.
Brad and Dalton preview the 1-1A showdown between Falkner and Okolona (7:58), which won the title last season. Okolona’s team speed could prove problematic for the Eagles, and on the other side of the ball, QB Lane Elliott will test the Chieftains’ defense.
Tupelo opens 1-6A play at home against Hernando (9:45). The Golden Wave had a week off to nurse some injuries and work on ball security issues.
And in 1-5A, two-time defending state champ West Point hosts a much-improved Lafayette team (11:14), which has three players closing in on 500 rushing yards.
Also, the guys look at some key results from last week. Corinth beat Itawamba AHS in a high-scoring affair (1:46); Oxford defeated turnover-prone Pontotoc on the road (4:23); and Shannon picked up a much-needed win against Senatobia (6:56).
But wait, there’s more football to discuss. Dalton looks at New Albany quarterback Losen Bolen (13:32), who is having a big senior season. Brad talks about his stories on TCPS coach Shaune Holiday and his son, QB Khi Holiday (15:46).
And the guys present Athletes of the Week (18:27). This week’s winners are Madison Jones of Saltillo and K.C. Ivy of Amory.
