Several area football teams opened division play last week, and Brad has some updates.
Tupelo got some big plays in the fourth quarter from both its offense and defense in a 20-7 win over Grenada (2:25). The Golden Wave are now 5-0 overall, 1-0 in Division 2-6A play.
West Point opened 1-5A action by rolling past Lafayette, 59-35 (5:04). Kahnen Daniels had a career night, rushing for 329 yards and four touchdowns. And back in 2-6A, Starkville fell well short against reigning state champ Madison Central (6:12).
Looking ahead to Week 6, Tupelo will host Oxford (7:28). The Golden Wave had a very poor outing when these teams met last season. The A-Game features Aberdeen at Amory (10:12). The visiting Bulldogs have made big strides under coach Alex Williams, but the Panthers are a loaded group. And in a 1-3A showdown, Kossuth visits Booneville (11:29).
Also on this episode, Brad looks at some up-and-coming football players (12:45), plus he has Athletes of the Week (15:05).
