Vicksburg High School quarterback Shakori Regan is preparing to lead the Gators in his upcoming senior year.

Regan, who was the starting quarterback last season, ended the year with some impressive numbers and is ready for his senior year to begin.

”I feel good about this upcoming season, and I feel that we are going somewhere,” Regan said.

Last season, Regan showed his ability to get outside the pocket to make things happen.

”I need to stay in the pocket more, but I’m good at getting outside and taking off when the pressure hits,” Regan said.

Regan created some big plays for the Gators through the air last season, but with his quickness and  great athleticism, he also rushed for plenty of yards on the ground every ball game. He finished the 2019 season with nearly 700 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.

Taking the Gators to a championship is one of Regan’s main goals for his senior year, and he would also love to get an offer from a Division 1 school in the process.

”So far I have been in contact with Air Force and Cornell College, but I would like to receive more offers before it’s all over,” Regan said

He spent his first couple of varsity seasons playing under former VHS coach Tim Hughes but now he will be playing under the new leadership of coach Todd McDaniel who is beginning his first year as head coach.

The Gators  lost two big starters on the team who were close to Regan, but he hopes the best for them.

“We took a big hit by losing two of our main factors  on defense—the two people I call my brothers, Marvin Martin And Shardez Taylor—two people I basically grew up with,” Regan said.  “I just hope them the best and nothing but the best in life. I love y’all boys.”

With the Mississippi High School Activities Association saying June 1 will restart high-school sports, Regan will soon begin preparing to lead the Gators onto the field in the fall for a winning season.
