Former Warren Central football player Vertez Shorter picked up his second sack of the season Thursday for Hinds Community College in the game against Jones Community College.
Shorter, who is in his sophomore season, was able to get to the quarterback for a big stop in Hinds 18-16 win. His first sack came last week against Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
Shorter is gaining plenty of playing time this season at defensive tackle for the Eagles who now have a 1-1 record. He is a 2019 graduate of Warren Central High School and gained 72 tackles and four sacks in the 2019 season.
Shorter and the Eagles will be at home next week as they play Itawamba Community College at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22.
