Local high school football teams opened preseason camp on Monday in preparation for the coming season. On this episode, Brad and Dalton take a look at a few key storylines.
Tupelo is looking to replace some key players on defense (1:59), but it’s a unit that should bring plenty of speed to the table. The Golden Wave allowed just 11.6 points per game last season.
Baldwyn had a lot of turnover on both sides of the ball (5:08), but that doesn’t mean 2018 will be a down year for the Bearcats. They’ve got a new quarterback in Maddux Richey and a 260-pound running back in Corion Doss.
The guys also talk about slow-pitch softball, which has seen a big decline in recent years in Mississippi (8:29). This could be the final season for the sport, which schools have been dropping for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is the rise of volleyball, which several area schools are adding (13:45).
And in baseball, the Tupelo 49ers won the American Senior Legion state title last weekend and now move on to the Mid-South Regional in New Orleans (16:24).
