"It was a big win for us," added Reuben Corley. "We had to take it over. We had a big lead (21-0), but we knew they were going to battle back. We had to come in the game and show them. They have been mouthing us a while so we wanted to show them how hard we work."
Panola has had the state's toughest schedule and the Tigers have come out of it
unblemished. Does the senior class feel any validation from their performances?
feel like we got a lot more left. Them guys ahead of us, Tig and Bud Barksdale
and those guys, thought we did not have what it took to do what they did. But
it gave us motivation to prove them wrong. Now we have the younger guys like RB
Nick Parker and DE Devin Clark doing their thing. Parker has been playing hard.
We have one more big game coming up against Tupelo tonight, then the playoffs
Was keeping the winning streak alive the main focus or just
winning the state championship?
"Both are very important because John
and Peria Jerry and those guys started the streak back in '03 and it is up to
us to keep it going. We are not as big as those guys, but we are talented and
work hard. We have a blue collar group this year."
Does Corley still
feel solid with his Memphis commitment?
"Yes sir. I think I can go
in and turn that program around with their offense. They want me to be that physical
guy. But USM is also showing me a lot of love. They want me to come down there
for a visit. I am going to try and take my visit down there soon."
