The Vicksburg High School football team ended its season Friday night with a 31-14 loss to Grenada.

The playoff game was the first time Vicksburg High had advanced to the postseason since 2017. The Gators were led by first-year head coach Todd McDaniel who helped the team strive for the playoffs.

Wide receiver Keveon Smith scored the first touchdown for the Gators after catching a 22-yard pass from freshman quarterback Ronnie Alexander. Smith finished his last game as a Gator Friday after a successful three years on the varsity level.

Alexander scored the last touchdown of the night in the fourth quarter as he ran the ball for a one-yard score.

The Grenada Chargers advance to play West Point in the second round of the playoffs next Friday as the Gators prepare for their offseason workouts.
