With the release of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s football signing class for 2012 Monday, I thought it appropriate to look back at a former Ranger signee who went on to impact the game at the Division I level and the NFL. (more…) (February 7, 2012, Page 9)
AROUND THE SQUARE AND BEYOND: Northwest Mississippi Community College football coach Ricky Woods wants to win an MACJC state title in the worst way, but he needs the help of area players, and district players, to help him do it. The Rangers finished the 2010 season with a 9-1 overall mark, but a 52-24 loss to Gulf Coast last Saturday at Bobby Franklin Field was not the ending Woods was hoping for.

A 31-point outburst that stretched from the midway point of the second half to the midway point of the fourth quarter propelled the No. 5 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers to a 38-13 win over Holmes Thursday night.
The win kept the Rangers undefeated on the season (8-0) but it also earned them at least a share of the MACJC North Division title. NWCC, which is 5-0 in the North Division, will finish up the season at home Thursday against Itwabama and a win over the Indians would give them the title outright. (October 22, 2010, Page 7A)
A win tonight over Holmes would secure a playoff spot and at least a share of the MACJC North Division title for the No. 5 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers.
Kickoff in Goodman against the Bulldogs is set for 7 and the game can be heard locally on 93.7 FM. (October 21, 2010, Page 9)
A firm grip on the MACJC North Division race is what the No. 9 Northwest Mississippi Rangers will try to accomplish tonight with a win at rival Northeast.
The Rangers (4-0 overall, 2-0 in North Division) and Tigers (3-1, 2-0) will meet at 7 in Booneville. The game can be heard locally on 93.7 FM with Ronnie Williams calling the play-by-play and Keith Patterson adding the color analysis. (September 30, 2010, Page 8)
A complete effort from the offense, defense and special teams couldn’t have come at a better time for the Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers Thursday night.
The Rangers won their second MACJC North Division game in as many tries with a one-sided 37-7 win over Coahoma at Bobby Franklin Field. Thursday’s win saw the Rangers (4-0 overall, 2-0 in division play) grab an early lead that only continued to grow in the first half. The Rangers jumped out to a 27-0 lead on the Tigers (2-2, 1-1) thanks to the passing of quarterback Brent Osborn, the receiving of wideout Myles White and the hard running of Jay Jones and Calvin Malone. (September 24, 2010, Page 6A)
Two touchdowns each from Myles White and Jay Jones helped lead the No. 15 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers to a 41-26 win over East Central Thursday night at Bobby Franklin Field.
NWCC (2-0 overall) jumped out to a 19-6 lead in the first quarter but ended up trailing 20-19 at the half. The third quarter proved to be the difference in the game for the Rangers as they outscored East Central 15-0. (September 10, 2010, Page 7A)
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)
