As soccer captivates the world’s attention this week and the next with the World Cup, another international sport took center stage in the mountains of Colorado this past weekend.
Glendale, Colo., was the site of the National All-Star Championships and one former Oxford High School football standout was able to help the South win the Tier I title.
Oxford’s Will Belk was a member of the South All-Stars who defeated Southern California and then Pacific Coast 14-13 to win the title. Belk was the lone player from Ole Miss to join the team that was made up mostly of players from Life College in Atlanta and Arkansas State. (June 17, 2010, Page 6)
Spring is a chance for fresh starts and for former Oxford High standout Louis Gillom, the opportunity to play right away under the guidance of a former Division I football coach was too much to pass up.
Gillom signed with Lambuth University this past December after a solid career at Northeast Mississippi Community College. The 6-foot-1, 291-pounder is now running with the first team at center under the direction of first-year coach Ron Dickerson, who coached Temple from 1993-97. (March 30, 2010, Page 8)
