Apology allows Kennedy to finally move forward

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy finally heard somebody else say they were sorry in public.

For the past 20 months, since his now famous entanglement with a cab driver and the police in Cincinnati, Kennedy has been on the losing end of a story that has now ended the way Kennedy was hoping it would, with an apology. (August 18, 2010, Page 8)

    Alexander shows experience in win

    A year ago Ivory Alexander was still finding her way on Oxford High’s volleyball court, still adapting to her teammates and coach Tara Ross’ style.

    Against Senatobia at the OHS gym on Tuesday, Alexander’s maturity and athleticism made the difference as the Lady Chargers picked up a 3-1 (25-11, 23-25, 25-12, 25-19) victory.

    The junior didn’t just rack up an abundance of kills or blocks, but she helped her team in a number of ways, finishing the match with four kills, two digs and four aces. (August 18, 2010, Page 9)

        Rebs’ Pomeranz signs late-night deal

        It went down to the final minutes, but Ole Miss pitcher Drew Pomeranz is now a professional baseball player.

        Just before Monday’s midnight EDT deadline, the All-American pitcher signed a contract with the Cleveland Indians organization.

        According to the Associated Press, the contract includes a $2.65 million signing bonus, which is just over the Major League Baseball suggested slot price for the No. 5 player ($2.52 million). (August 17, 2010, Page 6)

            Looking for hangtime

            Tyler Campbell has a big-league leg.

            He proved that last season when he bombed a punt 71 yards against Alabama, forcing one of the top returners in the country, Javier Arenas, to double back from his original spot. That was just one of the many impressive kicks that led the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder to be considered one of the top punters in the nation with a 43.95 yards per punt average that ranked 12th in the country.

            His robust average, which was helped by nine punts of over 50 yards, earned him a spot on the SEC All-Freshman team.

            With regards to the upcoming season, Campbell can still improve. (August 17, 2010, Page 6)

              NWCC’s Woods excited for new year

              Ricky Woods doesn’t like to lose. The veteran coach, who once won 60 games in a row at South Panola, isn’t used to not making the playoffs and competing for championships.

              So when the Rangers missed the MACJC playoffs last season despite a 6-3 overall record, the goal for Woods was to get the program better and headed back in the right direction. (August 17, 2010, Page 7)

                Harris, Davis perform well for Rebels

                All eyes were on the quarterback competition during Ole Miss’ first full scrimmage of the preseason Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

                While all three signal callers did their best to prove why each deserves to start, it was running back Enrique Davis and receiver Melvin Harris who may have left the biggest impressions with onlookers.

                Davis broke free for a 56-yard touchdown on the eighth play of the scrimmage to make a case why he should remain in the conversation as a front-line running back in the Ole Miss offense. (August 16, 2010, Page 6)

                  Commodores shake off rust in win over Pontotoc

                  The Lafayette Commodores capped its preseason with a dominating 14-0 win over Pontotoc on Friday in a jamboree game at William L. Buford Stadium.

                  When talking to Lafayette’s coaches, the phrase sluggish was used several times to describe the squad’s performance despite limiting Pontotoc to just 15 yards of total offense.

                  Such is life as the defending Class 4A North Half Champion. (August 16, 2010, Page 6)

                    Billups, Chargers’ O shines in jamboree

                    This year’s official Oxford High football T-shirt has the saying ‘the power of the stache’ printed on the back in honor of coach Johnny Hill’s famous facial hair.

                    But after the way senior quarterback Guy Cameron Billups played in Oxford’s jamboree game against Ripley Saturday morning, the booster club may want to print up a new shirt entitled ‘fear the experience of the blonde’ in honor of Billups’ golden locks and his ability to move the offense. (August 16, 2010, Page 6)
