MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Ask any of Mississippi’s top football talents if he has heard from Ole Miss’ new coach and the answer was the same more often than not.

“(Hugh Freeze) called almost every night this week. That shows they’re really interested,” North Pike defensive end/linebacker A.J. Jefferson said on Saturday. (more…) (December 12, 2011, Page 6)

      In-demand Rangers: NWCC trio receiving attention

      Some of the best recruits in the junior college ranks reside just 45 miles away from Oxford at Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia.

      Sophomore offensive left tackle Donald Hawkins, wide receiver Lance Ray and quarterback Ryan Mossakowski are just three reasons why the Rangers went 6-3 overall this year and were ranked in the top 5 nationally at one point this season. Hawkins and Ray both earned MACJC First Team All-State honors, while Mossakowski was named to the second team. (more…) (December 7, 2011, Page 6)

          Dennis runs No. 1 Lafayette into next round

          Lafayette senior running back Demarkous Dennis said he has been eating a little less at meals than normal now that the MHSAA’s Class 4A playoffs have started. His efforts to remain sleek and fast were definitely noticeable on the field Friday night as Dennis rushed for 303 yards and four touchdowns on 20 carries in the Commodores’ 53-8 thrashing of Greenwood at William L. Buford Stadium. (more…) (November 14, 2011, Page 2B)

            New-look Rebels host ULM Warhawks

            Ole Miss Rebel men’s basketball team will look to start its season off on a good foot with a win over Louisiana-Monroe tonight at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. Ole Miss defeated North Alabama 91-62 in its lone exhibition game on Nov. 3. In that contest, Ole Miss had several new faces make contributions, while veterans, such as senior Terrance Henry, had positive contributions as well.

            Overall Ole Miss returns six lettermen and three starters from a team that finished 20-14 and played in the NIT last year. Louisiana-Monroe finished the 2010-11 season with a 7-24 overall mark. The Warhawks return nine lettermen and three starters from that team. (more…) (November 11, 2011, Page 6A)

              Leake Central no match for Commodores

              Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen’s arrival to Friday night’s game at William L. Buford Stadium via helicopter wasn’t enough to distract the No. 1 Lafayette Commodores from their mission of winning in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs.

              Playing more like a junior college football team rather than one composed of a bunch of 15-, 16- and 17-year-old kids, the Commodores had no trouble dispatching the Leake Central Gators 46-7. (more…) (November 7, 2011, Page 3B)

                Gross awarded All-America jersey

                BATESVILLE — It’s not often that a high school program as dominant as South Panola has been the last 18 years has a first of any kind to publicize. For a program that has won nine state championships and seen countless players sign Division I offers and star at Northwest Mississippi Community College over the same period, it’s hard to believe that a Tiger hasn’t played in one of the top high school All-Star games in the nation.

                    Junior college presidents drop ball on local athletes, programs

                    COLUMN: Leave it to a collective group of college presidents to effectively tinker with something that isn’t broken.

                    When the junior college presidents of Mississippi decided late Tuesday that they were eliminating the protected recruiting list for all sports, getting rid of the current athletic districts and greatly reducing the amount of scholarships for out-of-state players, they all but killed junior college athletics in this state.
