Mays Will Be Playing For Championship

Todd Mays, one of Oklahoma State's latest football commitments, was his usual triple threat self this past Saturday in helping East Mississippi extend its 22-game win streak with a Mississippi Junior College Conference semifinal 45-21 victory over Mississippi Gulf Coast. Now East Mississippi takes on 11th-ranked Copiah Lincoln, which eliminated Northwest Mississippi 44-30, this coming Saturday.

"It was great and now we win one more and we play for the national championship," Mays said, adding, "I didn't do much."

The 6-0, 200-pound Mays rushed seven times for 42 yards and was 2-for-2 passing for 9 yards. He also caught one pass for six yards. On the season, he has completed 15 of 16 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown. He has rushed 61 times for 367 yards and six touchdowns. He also has 13 receptions for 170 yards and a touchdown.

Mays added that he will be in Stillwater for his official visit the next Saturday when Oklahoma State plays Texas. OSU has nine prospects making official visits that weekend by our count.

Another commit who has already made his visit is defensive lineman Motekiai Maile out of Tyler J.C. The 6-4, 300-pound Maile helped lead the Apaches to 70-52 win over Navarro C.C., and now Tyler J.C. will visit unbeaten Trinity Valley on Saturday for the championship of the Southwest Junior College Football Conference. Trinity Valley ended the season for Kilgore with a 55-35 verdict.

Maile has 32 tackles, 28 unassisted, three sacks, and seven tackles for loss for the 8-2 Apaches.

Todd Mays will be a guest on Sportstalk with Robert Allen and Friends on Triple Play Sports Radio (1020 and 1580 am and 105.1 fm) at 12:15 p.m. Monday.
