Two Warren Central Powerlifters will advance to the State Powerlifting Championships because of their performance in last week’s North State Powerlifting meet held Saturday in Madison.

Jalen Davenport and Lane Gordon both showed their impressive strength over the weekend as they both were one of the top lifters in their weight class.

Davenport came in second place in the 242-pound weight class at the North State meet and Gordon placed first in the 123 weight class. Now, both players are eligible to go to the Mississippi State meet next month.

Warren Central football player Taylen Smith wrapped up his senior season of football with the Vikings on a high note.

Smith holds the record for all high schools in the Vicksburg Warren School District for defensive sacks this season. He helped lead the Vikings to the playoffs under head coach Josh Morgan, finishing with eight sacks on the year, and he was a key reason the Vikings had a successful 9-3 season.

Smith’s talent was apparent early in the season when he had 15 tackles in the Red Carpet Bowl against Vicksburg High School. By the end of the season, he finished with an impressive 43 tackles.

Smith’s skills aren’t limited to tackling. He also made two interceptions and returned them both for touchdowns.

His high school football career may be over, but Smith announced Wednesday that he had received a scholarship offer from Coahoma Community College.

He has not officially committed to any school, yet, as he could be receiving more offers soon.

Vicksburg natives DeMichael Harris and Malcolm Butler went head to head again Sunday night when the Indianapolis Colts took on the Tennessee Titans.

Butler led Titans to the 45-26 victory over the Colts, but both teams are having a great season.

Butler finished the game with four tackles and one interception for the Titans. Harris rushed one time for 2 yards and caught one pass for 1 yard for the Colts.

The two Vicksburg natives met for the first time last month when the Colts defeated the Titans 34-17, but this time it would be Butler and the Titans who took home the win.
