SCOOBA — Mature was a word that continued to come out of the mouth of Nick Brassell following his team’s victory against the No. 5 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers Thursday night.

The double team still didn’t completely work as Rumph still lead the Bulldogs with seven receptions for 63 yards. (October 15, 2012, Page 4B)
