Brad and Dalton pack a lot into this week’s episode, from football to basketball to softball.
Dalton looks back at last week’s Bernard Blackwell Classic All-Star Game (1:31), which the North won 13-0. Several area players played key roles, including Tupelo kicker Josh Smith (the offensive MVP) and North Pontotoc quarterback Clark Mills.
And this weekend, it’s the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star Game (3:28), which will see eight area players in action.
On the hardwood, Brad recaps the Houlka boys’ win over previously undefeated Ingomar (5:07). Madarius Hobson had a big game, but he also got plenty of help from his teammates. In girls action, freshman Sky Vaughn sparked Pontotoc in a division-opening win over Amory (8:35). And Brad has quick updates on the Belmont and Ingomar girls (11:10).
Back to football: Class 1A might soon look a little different (12:17). A proposal to go from four divisions to eight will go before the MHSAA in February. A big benefit of the move would be to cut down on travel costs for schools.
On the softball front, the MHSAA recently announced that the fast-pitch championships will be held at Southern Miss and Mississippi State starting in 2018 (14:35). It’s a move that several area coaches are happy about.
And finally, Brad presents Athletes of the Week (16:28).
