The Warren County Ravens have won the Mississippi Youth Bowl Championship.

On Saturday, Dec. 14, the Ravens played the Canton Jaguars in Jackson, Miss., and secured a 13-0 win.

Quarterback Cameron Zellous scored both touchdowns for the Ravens, including a 35-yard run on the opening drive. Running back Jordan Taylor secured the extra points that helped put the Ravens ahead in the game.

The Warren County Ravens consist of 8-year-old boys from around the county.

“We traveled to Starkville to Hollondale to play all around the state, and we only gave up a total of 6 points in 17 games,” said head coach Decorey Knight.

Knight mentioned that this season wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the other Ravens coaches including Vance Gray, Troy Rogers and Jeremy Judge.

“We turned around a team that didn’t win a single game two years ago,” Knight said.

Overall, the Ravens have won three championship games this year, and they finished with a perfect record of 17-0 on the season.

Abraham led the Golden Eagles to two winning seasons as the starting quarterback.

USM will start Trey Lowe Saturday in the game with Western Kentucky. Lowe is the third string quarterback behind Tate Whately who is battling a concussion.

The Warren Central Vikings will travel to play Clinton High School Friday, Nov. 20, in the second round of the class 6A playoffs.

Clinton and Warren County played each other in the regular season, resulting in a 31-16 victory for the Arrows. That game was the first loss for the Vikings this season, and the team is preparing for the rematch.

The Vikings advanced to the second round after Tupelo High School canceled due to COVID-19.

Last night, Clinton defeated Horn Lake 35-7 to advance to the next round and set up the rematch with the Vikings.

The Vikings defense has been tough all season, and they rarely let their opponents get into the end zone. They will be led by head coach Josh Morgan who has taken the Vikings to nine consecutive playoff appearances.

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