On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, Camal and Andrew hit a range of topics from football to basketball. First, they discuss how the MHSAA Gridiron Classic did at Southern Miss last weekend. What were some issues and what made the weekend great?
Oak Grove Warriors
The Class 6A State Title game featured a battle between two extremely talented dual-threat quarterbacks.
HATTIESBURG – Friday night was the most difficult loss Oak Grove coach Drew Causey has ever been associated with, and for good reason.
The Oak Grove Warriors fell to the Horn Lake Eagles 31-27 in the 6A State Championship, ending the Warriors season 12-3 overall while Horn Lake finished the season with a perfect 15-0 record.
We’re back to preview the 6A State Championship game between Horn Lake and Oak Grove. Camal and Andrew discuss a few details before diving into the matchup.
They discuss both sides of the ball for Horn Lake and Oak Grove, then give their prediction of how the game will go.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, WDAM’s Taylor Curet joins Camal and Andrew to discuss all six MHSAA high school football state championship games, before diving deep into Oak Grove’s matchup with Horn Lake. There’s also an interview with Oak Grove senior quarterback John Rhys Plumlee played.
The matchup for the state championship in Mississippi’s largest classification has been set. It features a team that has been one of the favorites to come out of the north half all season, and a team in the south that wasn’t picked by many – if any – to make it this far.
When the Horn Lake seniors were freshmen, the Eagles were coming off a 2-10 season. Before that, they were 9-24 in Brad Boyette’s first three seasons as head coach at the school. As the seniors have gotten older, the Horn Lake Eagles have gotten better.
The Oak Grove Warriors’ rushing attack got a boost when the postseason started three weeks ago.
Oak Grove was already averaging 216 yards on the ground per game, but in the last three weeks, it’s pushed its 14-game average to 232 a game. In the three playoff games, the Warriors are rushing for an average of 290 yards per game, too.
JACKSON – Friday night was just a normal Friday night for Oak Grove’s Drew Causey and his coaches. They got back to the fieldhouse after a game, started laundry and popped in the film from the game Oak Grove just played a few hours prior.
