We’ve been swamped with year end work of late thus my complete absence from the Slabbed cyber-scene. Thanksgiving offered no break as, like Nowdy, I’m the main Thanksgiving cook at casa Sop. My first attempt at a cane syrup pecan pie was a flop. Today I get to clear 2 weeks worth of non critical s-mail from my desk and hopefully reply to almost 2 weeks worth of emails.
One thing I’ve managed to do though is continue to follow St Stanislaus’ trip through the class 4A south state playoffs as the Rock’s QB Dylan Favre and his talented group of wide receivers have dismantled all comers, whether it was blitzing Columbia defense or the “cover 2” played by Forrest County AHS. Tonight Greene County is on tap as the coast’s 3 South State Championship contenders were featured on the front page of today’s Sun Herald. James Jones takes it from there:
The Rockachaws (12-1) entertain Greene County tonight at Brother Phillip Memorial Stadium. A victory would put St. Stanislaus in the 4A title game for the first time in school history………
The Rockachaws get a rematch with Greene County. The Rockachaws rolled past Greene County 42-21 in a Region 8-4A game last month in Leakesville.
Quarterback Dylan Favre will become the state’s first 5,000-yard passer, barring injury. He has compiled 4,829 yards passing while throwing for 56 touchdowns. He’s also rushed for 1,142 yards and 15 more scores.
Wide receiver Krisjon Wilkerson has 95 receptions for 1,845 yards and 22 TDs. Boomer Scarborough, the Rocks’ blue-collar guy over the middle, has 64 receptions for 1,065 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Kollin Cannon could join Wilkerson and Scarborough in the 1000-yard receiving club. He has 53 receptions for 809 yards and seven touchdowns.
“We’ve got our work cut out for us,’’ SSC coach Forrest Williams said. “It’s hard to beat a team twice in the same season. Greene County’s a different team since we last played them, but we’re playing well right now.”
Itawamba AHS and Lafayette County meet in the 4A North state finals tonight.
Nowdy me and the boy are hoping to roll into Jackson on the 5th to catch the title game.
