Myers Talks Nation's #1

Cameron Myers and Oak Grove suffered their first loss of the season last week when they fell to Brandon in a back and forth affair. The Warriors will look to bounce back and close out the regular season strong in hopes of defending their 6A state championship title.

"We have Provine this week," said Myers. "We are hoping to get the W this week and get back on track after last week. We have a couple of more games before we start the playoffs."

Myers has put together a strong senior campaign for the 6A powers from Lamar County, Mississippi. The three star standout has lined up at several positions over the course of the year and he expects to do more of the same in the remaining weeks.

"I am not going to be playing quarterback these next couple of games," said Myers. "I have to play all of my other positions and just do what I can to help the team.

"I feel like I have done my thing this year and I am having a good season, but I have to really step it up in the playoffs."

Myers and his team collected the post season hardware last fall. The talented athlete is hopeful both his current and future teams will be the last ones standing at the end of the year this year.

"It feels great to be committed to the #1 school in the nation," said Myers. "I always believed in them, so this is not a surprise to me.

"I knew they were going to do some big things and it just makes me want to get up there even more."

Myers has been unable to attend any of the Mississippi State home games this season, but has watched attentively at home.

"I have seen just about every game on TV," said Myers. "They are really playing like a team, as a family. They are fun to watch and the whole team is playing good.

"I hope to get up there for a couple of games before the season is over.

"I am still solid with them and I talk to Coach (Tony) Hughes at least once a week. He tells me that he doesn't want me to drift away from Mississippi State or anything like that. We talk about all kind of stuff and he is always telling me how excited they are about me being up there next year."
