Under coach Tony Vance, the Hattiesburg football program has sent 48 players to play college football in the last six years. This year, the Tigers had 12 players sign, as eight more joined the four that inked in December by putting pen to paper Wednesday.
Take one good look at Oak Grove senior Tate Ryder away from the basketball court, and it’s hard to see what he’s capable of doing. But, get the 6-foot guard on the hardwood, and he plays with fiery passion with the capabilities of scoring 20 points a night.
HATTIESBURG – It’s a new team and it’s a new season, but the result remains the same every year for the Sacred Heart Lady Crusaders.
For the fourth straight season, and sixth time in the last seven years, the Lady Crusaders will play for a state title after defeating St. Patrick 5-1 Tuesday night at the Sacred Heart Athletic Complex.
HATTIESBURG – Sacred Heart senior Gabe Naquin loves the drama, and he was the center of it Saturday evening.
With four minutes left in regulation in a scoreless game, Naquin powered a shot inside the Franklin County box. Unlike the previous 14 shots on goal for the Crusaders, the Bulldogs’ goalkeeper couldn’t save it.
