Welcome to a new fall sports season! Well, for most.
Brad and Dillon are back to talk about the start of football preseason camp. Biggersville is looking to build on last season’s unprecedented success (1:40), when it reached the Class 1A state championship game. East Union, meanwhile, is hitting the reset button after reaching the 2A North final last year (5:00).
Volleyball season also began this week. Alcorn Central, led by Mia Griffin, rolled to a win over Saltillo (7:49). Tupelo fell to reigning 6A champ DeSoto Central (9:20), and Hickory Flat knocked off Ripley despite a quiet night from Emma Wilson (10:25).
COVID-19 has also shown back up (12:31). Calhoun City’s football team has gone into quarantine and will have to forfeit its season opener.
Also today, the Tupelo 49ers are headed to the American Legion World Series (16:57), and Kinsley Gordon has committed to Southern Miss (19:13).
