Got a little news. Holly Springs RB Jay Isom has left the team for personal reasons. He’s not happy about it, and his coach, Clifford Brown, said, “I’m a little dejected myself now.” That’s going to hurt the Hawks, who will now have to depend more heavily on quarterback Demetri Oliver. Senior Chris Scales, among others, will try to fill Isom’s shoes.

We’ll have a Week 1 practice update in Saturday’s Journal. I picked five schools at random – well, mostly random – and will have a little on each. By all means, if any of y’all have been out to your team’s practices, let us all know how things are looking.

I was looking closely at the Week 1 schedule and realized how many great matchups there are: Booneville at Baldwyn, Calhoun City at Vardaman, Ripley at New Albany, Madison Central at Lafayette Co., Shannon at West Point … it’ll be a fun opening weekend. Of course, we’re already planning our coverage, both the content and the quality thereof. But more on that later.
