On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, two Hattiesburg football players sit down with sports editor Camal Petro for interviews, as well as breakdowns of other area games.
As Sumrall prepares for Forrest County AHS Friday night, there’s a little bit of déjà vu with the football program. For the second straight season, the Bobcats (5-4, 1-2 in Region 7-4A) will face the Aggies (5-4, 1-2) with a playoff berth on the line.
Not much changed in this week’s Associated Press Prep Poll, as the Hattiesburg remains the only team in the area ranked in Overall Top 10 at No. 5. Petal is also receiving a vote in the poll, but it’s 15 votes behind No. 10 East Central.
Lumberton dropped from T-4 to sitting alone at No. 5 in the 1A poll, too.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast Lumberton coach Zach Jones and Petal wide receiver Trent Williams join the show for separate interview.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, sports editor Camal Petro sits down with Petal head coach Marcus Boyles. They discuss last week’s win over Oak Grove, Boyles’ team and this week’s matchup with Brandon.
After the break, the other seven contests featuring area teams are analyzed.
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.
PURVIS – Like two prizefighters trying to land the final blow, Purvis landed the fatal blow with 11 seconds to play when quarterback Ty Howell bobbed and weaved behind his offensive line to score a 4-yard touchdown for the 35-28 victory over the Sumrall Bobcats at home.
