MSU Commitment Scoreboard Update Week Eight

Several MSU commitments led their teams to big wins on Friday night. With the game and perhaps the season on the line, a couple of players stepped up and made some very special plays to help their teams remain in contention for the post season and possibly more.

With D'iberville deep in the redzone, Lashard Durr made a pair of plays that may have saved Harrison Central's season.

On 3rd down, Durr was responsible for a tackle for loss that forced D'iberville to attempt a game tying field goal.

With the game possibly hanging in the balance, Durr blasted through and blocked the field goal attempt that was returned for a Harrison Central touchdown.

The Red Rebels went on to a 24-7 upset win over D'iberville.

Harrison Central (4-3) will host Ocean Springs next week.

Aeris Williams picked a good time for his best game of the season.

In what amounted to a must win game, Williams ran for 252 yards and four touchdowns on twenty carries in a 69-41 win over Center Hill.

West Point improves to 3-4 and will host Lake Cormorant next week in hopes of keeping their offense rolling.

Nick Fitzgerald ran for four more touchdowns in a 35-20 win over Effingham County.

The game brought out some high spirited competition from both teams which resulted in the ejection of an Effingham County coach.

Richmond Hill remains undefeated (6-0) and will travel to Ware County next week.

Chris Rayford and Byhalia picked up a much needed win in a tightly contested battle with New Albany, 14-12.

BHS (2-4) will look to stay in playoff contention next week when they host Senatobia.

Jesse Jackson said at his press conference on Monday that the next item on his 2014 agenda was to take care of Brandon.

A great week for Jackson got even better as Petal knocked off #1 Brandon 20-13.

Jackson was held to just 34 yards on two catches, but his efforts helped the Panthers remain undefeated at home in the Marcus Broyles' coaching era.

Petal (6-1) will travel to Jim Hill next week.

Darius Liggins and Oxford picked up another win as they celebrated homecoming with a 40-9 blow out of Lewisburg.

Oxford (7-0) will travel to New Hope next week.

Sean Rawlings and MRA blanked Washington School 16-0 to run their record to 6-2.

MRA gets a week off next week which should provide them the chance to heal a bit and add a new wrinkle or two for the huge game with Jackson Academy the following week.

Deshon Cooper and Columbia (GA) evened their record at 3-3 after knocking off Chamblee 14-10.

Cooper recorded an eye popping 17 tackles a week ago in a tough loss, but tonight the Eagles get back on track with a hard fought victory.

Columbia will host Lithonia next week.

Braxton Hoyett and Pelham fell to Prattville 24-17 to drop their record to 5-2.

The Panthers will look to rebound next week as they host Chelsea.

Jordan Harris and Stephenson saw their unbeaten streak come to an end as #1 Tucker slipped by 31-28 thanks to a last minute hail mary for the win.

Stephenson will look to rebound next week as they take on Miller Grove.

Gerri Green and Greenville-Weston continue to struggle scoring points.

Starkville High took it to the Hornets 39-6.

Weston will travel to Hew Hope next week.

In an upset, #1 FCAHS lost for the first time since the season opener.

Quitman got the better of the Aggies in a 35-32 decision.

FCAHS (5-2) will look to get back to their winning ways next week when Northeast Lauderdale comes to town.

As previously reported, Norman Price and Hinds knocked off previously unbeaten #2 Jones County on Thursday night.

Jocquell Johnson Co-Lin will host Pearl River on Saturday for homecoming and Will Coleman and Tyler Junior College will travel to Cisco.

MSU commitments Elijah Staley and Jamoral Graham are done for the season.

Logan Cooke is on track to be back in action next week when Columbia Academy (3-4) takes on Jackson Prep.
