  • Pats’ defense highlights win over JA
    JACKSON – Perhaps MRA coach Herbert Davis should move Ty Anthony to wide receiver.

    Well, maybe not. But, hey, the Patriots’ nose guard sure did display a soft set of hands - or at least a receptive bread basket - as he drifted to the flat and intercepted a pass here early in the fourth quarter at The Brickyard on Friday night. Not only did he pick off the errant pass at the Jackson Academy 35-yard line, Anthony, all 260 pounds of him, motored 20 yards on the return.
  • Madison Central downs Starkville 29-14

  • The Chicago Cubs, the best team in baseball this regular season, famously have not won a World Series championship since 1908 and have not played in a World Series since 1945.
