JACKSON — We are nearing the halfway point of 2017. Interesting to note, in Mississippi sports these first five months, women have provided the most meaningful and poignant success stories, the most lasting memories.
There’s been no shortage of sports news recently, but the story that intrigued this writer most was under the radar this past weekend – unless you were in Cincinnati. You, as I, might have missed it.
As the last choice of the NFL Draft, Chad Kelly will spend the next year being called “Mr. Irrelevant.”
But it says here Kelly possesses the arm strength, athleticism and toughness to become relevant, indeed, in the NFL.
The NCAA announced last week that college football recruits will now have a chance to sign a scholarship in December rather than wait until the first Wednesday in February, the traditional national signing day.
Mississippi’s boys of spring – at least the ones who play college baseball – rarely disappoint. The spring of 2017 is no exception.
We call it March Madness. For a couple weeks, the NCAA Tournament takes over our TVs, our sports sections and our office talk.
