PETAL – As much as Petal fans want to remember and relive last Friday’s win over Oak Grove, the coaches and players must move forward because Brandon (4-3, 2-0 in Region 3-6A) comes to town this week.
LEAKSVILLE – It might be Purvis versus Greene County Friday, but there’s another interesting storyline to the game.
The Tornadoes offense will match up with a familiar face, and no, it’s not a player. Greene County defensive coordinator Jacob Aycock spent time in Purvis, and he’s acquainted with Purvis’ offensive personnel.
SUMRALL – Lawrence County isn’t new to 4A football, or this region for that matter, but it’s certainly new to Bobcats’ coach Shannon White. The Cougars used to be in Region 7, but when Sumrall moved up to 4A three years ago, that bumped them to Region 6.
COLUMBIA – The Crusaders have had two weeks to think about their 44-0 loss to Resurrection, and they’re eager to get back on the field this week at East Marion.
Coach Lonny Schraeder said his bunch had a productive off week, too.
