Schedule and Projections

Interesting Quarterfinals Games

Olive Branch (22-5) #2 travels 133 miles to MVSU vs Starkville (21-3) #9 travels 96 miles to MVSU-Big time game here. Two of my favorites getting it over with early. Senior Mook Mathews is playing like a monster for OB and he is refusing to lose games right now. Starkville is a team that you can never count out. Tough to call here but I think I’m going with OB.

Petal (17-7) #11 travels 82 miles to MCC vs Harrison Central (25-4) #6 travels 18 miles to MCC- Congrats to seniors Trey Smith and Caleb McGill for getting past the Terry gym. O yeah, you also get Harrison Central on the coast. It doesn’t get any easier as the road winds down but I see the two finally leading Petal to the Big House. Harrison Central is one year away from being the 6A favorite with junior Carlous Williams.

Southaven (14-14) #41 travels 128 miles to MVSU vs Murrah (17-10) #18 travels 102 miles to MVSU- Speaking of one year away. Both of these teams are giving you a glimpse at what you can expect to see in Jackson next year. Both are really young and talented so I’m going to call it a near toss up.

Gulfport (26-6) #8 travels 5 miles to MCC vs Biloxi (23-4) #17 travels 6 miles to MCC- One of the best rivalries in the state on one of the biggest stages for a chance to move on. This is storybook. I liked Gulfport early on and Biloxi has completely flown under the radar this year. Another great game that will be tough to call. I see it being won on a last second shot.

Biggest Potential Upset According to MaxPreps Rankings

As far as rankings go, Southaven has a chance to knock off a much higher ranked team in the futures game.
