Time and Marcus Dupree

Posted by: | Comments (0)

marcus dupree siIt’s been nearly 31 years since a Philadelphia High School freshman named Marcus Dupree returned the opening kickoff in his first-ever varsity game 75 yards for a touchdown and began the journey to becoming a legend.

In the next four years, Dupree became the highest recruited player in the country. His story has everyone talking, even today. ESPN is in the process to making a movie about the story in a book written by Willie Morris entitled “The Courting of Marcus Dupree.”

football logoWhile Madison Central seems to be most everyone’s top pick to win the inaugural MHSAA 6A Championship, that’s not the case at Mississippi Prep Sports Source.
While we see the MC Jaguars as one of the top teams in the state — second best, in fact — the No. 1 spot in our MHSAA Class 6A rankings goes to South Panola.
The Tigers came up just short in the 5A title game last year and with Nick Parker back in the fold should still be the team to beat. Olive Branch, Oak Grove and Meridian round out the top five.
Wayne County gets the nod in 5A, with Picayune second and West Jones third. Any of the top three teams could have gotten the No. 1 position, but the War Eagles have to be the favorite at this point. Pearl and D’Iberville are fourth and fifth.
A pair of defending state champions are at the top of the charts in Class 4A, with defending 4A champ Noxubee County at No. 1 and defending 3A champ Louisville at No. 2. Completing the top five are Shannon, Lawrence County and Lafayette County.
Tylertown should win the 3A state title this year, after coming up just short (10 yards) to Louisville in 2008. But the Chiefs will have to take care of arch-rival Franklin County, ranked No. 2, just to get to the title game. Aberdeen is third, Forest fourth and Ripley fifth.
The North is extremely stacked in Class 2A, with West Bolivar getting the No. 1 spot. Scott Central, preseason ranked No. 2, is the lone South team in the top five, which is rounded out by Eupora, Ackerman and Calhoun City.
Flying under the radar with some folks is Mt. Olive, but that’s not so with MPSS, as the Pirates open the season at No. 1 in Class 1A.
Three powers hold down the next three spots with Ray Brooks at No. 2, Weir at No. 3 and Durant at No. 4. Vardaman is fifth.
Quite frankly, any of the the four could have justifiably been picked No. 1.
In the MAIS overall rankings Jackson Prep was the easy pick as No. 1, followed by Jackson Academy and Pillow Academy.
Lamar School out of Meridian is fourth and Parklane of McComb is fifth.

The Mississippi Prep Sports Source rankings are produced each week by Austin Bishop and Bobby Gray. Bishop has been covering high school sports in Mississippi since 1975, while Gray is a longtime follower of prep football in North Mississippi. The ranking service is in its second year.
