A strong defensive unit that is anchored in the middle by nose guard John Jenkins is what the No. 4 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers will have to try and overcome when they host No. 12 Gulf Coast at Bobby Franklin Field.
NWCC (9-0 overall) is two wins away from winning the MACJC state title, but in order to face Co-Lin or East Mississippi in that title game Nov. 13, the Rangers will have dispatch the Bulldogs (7-2) in the first-round of the playoffs on Saturday. (November 5, 2010, Page 8A)
