Several Blue Devils make MAC 3A Team

Several Water Valley Blue Devils were honored on Wednesday for their standout play on the football field.

Included on the 2010 Mississippi Association of Coaches’ Class 3A All-State Team were first teamers, linebacker J.D. Fondon, safety/running back Eric Buckley and long snapper Fred McGee. Cornerback/receiver Chris Conard was named to the second team, while linebacker C.J. Jackson, lineman Tommy Lipscomb and punter John Michael Grimmett were named as honorable mentions. (December 9, 2010, Page 6)

Individual plays lead Blue Devils to win

Three interceptions from junior cornerback Chris Conard was the biggest example of how the Water Valley Blue Devils earned a 20-10 win over Mooreville in their regular season finale Friday night.

On a night where the focus of the team was on the start of the Class 3A playoffs later this week, WVHS improved to 9-2 on the season by using great individual plays on both defense and offense to hold off the scrappy Troopers (7-4).

Besides Conard’s three picks, linebacker turned running back C.J. Jackson provided a 93-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter that essentially iced the contest for the Blue Devils. (November 1, 2010, Page 4B)
