Yeah, I know, I’ve been slacking off the last few days. I have been working, just not on bloggable stuff (I just invented a new word!).
In case you missed these stories over the weekend, we had a Week 1 football practice update, and we covered a Mooreville-Saltillo softball game. In Tuesday’s Journal, look for a prep notebook, especially if you’re a Tishomingo County or Smithville fan.
I’ve got to get out to some practices this week: Okolona, Aberdeen, Tupelo Christian, among others. We’re less than two weeks from the publication of the Football Journal (Aug. 24). Stuff’s slowly coming together.
I chatted with West Point coach Chris Chambless today, hoping for an update on transfer Markell Lee. All Chambless could tell me is that the 6-foot-5 linebacker, formerly of Corinth, is not yet practicing with the team. He’s apparently taking summer classes to get academically eligible.
Speaking of West Point, ICC and East Mississippi will play a football game there Oct. 18. That’s kind of cool.
I also spoke with Aberdeen coach Chris Duncan, who said his Bulldogs are much further along than they were this time last year in regards to getting schemes put together and learned. Duncan is entering his second season at the helm.
