Mississippi State University football landed a 2021 linebacker recruit from Georgia this weekend to help the future of the Bulldog defense.

Thomas Davis announced on Twitter that he will be joining the Bulldogs after his 2020-2021 senior season at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Ga.

“Thanks to everyone that supported me in this process and all the schools that gave me an opportunity to be apart of their team. With that being said, I will be taking my talents and knowledge to (Mississippi State University),” Davis wrote.

Davis led Lowndes High School to  14-1 record and a state championship appearance this past season. He finished his junior year with 47 tackles and 11 sacks, which impressed first-year MSU coach Mike Leach.

Davis originally committed to South Alabama but now he will take his talents to Starkville to play for the Bulldogs.

The Warren Central High School football game with Tupelo High School has been canceled.

The decision was made Friday afternoon because of a COVID-19 quarantine at Tupelo High School. Vicksburg-Warren School District officials have verified the situation which means the Vikings will not travel tonight.

Warren Central advances to the second round of the playoffs because Tupelo called off the game.

The Vikings have extra time to prepare for their next game when they play the winner of this week’s Clinton versus Horn Lake game on Friday, Nov. 20.

Playoff games around the state have been canceled this week due to COVID-19 concerns.

The Hinds Community College Eagle’s defense forced three turnovers and shutout the Pearl River Community College Wildcat’s offense to lead the Eagles to a 34-14 home victory Thursday evening.

With the win, Hinds improved to 3-1 overall this season.

Hinds jumped out to a 21-0 lead with 1:41 left on the clock in the first quarter via three consecutive scoring drives.

With 4:16 left on the clock in the second quarter, PRCC responded when they forced, recovered and returned a fumble for a touchdown to cut Hinds lead to 21-7.

Hinds answered right back with another long scoring drive, which was capped off by a 36-yard touchdown run to give them a 27-7 lead with 2:07 remaining in the first half.

PRCC scored their last points of the game with 1:08 remaining in the first half when they scooped and scored another Hinds fumble, which cut the Eagles lead to 27-14.

Hinds had the final say, however, as their offense put together an 85-yard touchdown drive to increase their lead to 34-14 with 2:44 left in the third quarter.

The Eagle defense went on to close out the game and give Hinds the 34-14 victory.

Hinds was scheduled to play East Central Community College and Copiah-Lincoln Community College over the next two weeks, but both of those colleges have canceled the remainder of their seasons due to concerns over COVID-19.

It is still to-be-determined if Hinds will play another game this season. If this was the Eagle’s last football game this year, they conclude their 2020 season with a 3-1 overall record.
