Coahoma Early College looking for a win at West Bolivar

Coahoma Early College football coach Jeremiah Brassell hopes his team starts quicker this week at West Bolivar than they did last week against Rosa Fort.  The Tigers are still without quarterback Chris Russell and running back Malik Burnett will be out for six weeks with a concussion so the offensive load will be carried by wide receiver Thomas Williams Jr. and backup quarterback Willie Eagins. Coach Brassell says the Eagles look fast but are young and haven’t scored a touchdown in five games, a trend that he hopes will continue when the Tigers play at to Rosedale Friday night at 7.

Coahoma Early College ready for West Tallahatchie

Coahoma Early College beat Strayhorn 44-16 last week and Coach Jeremiah Brassell says his Tigers will be ready for West Tallahatchie this week.  The offense sputtered and was called for 15 penalties in the first half but clicked in the second half despite starting mostly freshmen on the offiensive line; junior Corey Suggs remains on the injured list.  Brassell says even though this year's team is young, any team coached by Lorenzo Pimpton is dangerous; his Choctaws have made the playoffs every year since 2013, have had four straight winnng seasons and the last time West Tally started a season with back-to-back losses was in 2014.  The two teams will meet at James Miller Stadium at 7PM Friday.

Coahoma Early College coach upbeat despite loss

Coahoma Early College plays at Strayhorn this Friday night and despite a 28-0 loss Coahoma Early College coach Jeremiah Brassel was pleased with the Tigers’ performance in the first game of the season.  He noted that his team only has one senior starting on defense but the young team didn’t give up and held Simmons scoreless through the second, third and much of the fourth quarter.  Brassel said correcting the Tigers mistakes, especially on the offensive line, is the focus of this week’s preparation for Strayhorn, a team that runs a “wishbone” offense and a 5-3 defensive alignment.  Brassel added that his team is probably more athletic than Mustangs.

College football legend visits CCC

More than 80 youths age 6-13 attended this a youth football camp the week of July 23, 2018 at Coahoma Community College and met former Oklahoma player Marcus Dupree.  A native of Philadelphia, Mississippi, Dupree was a second-team All American with 224 carries, 1789 yards and 15 touchdowns while playing for the Sooners.  His mother is also a graduate of Coahoma Community College.

Dupree was featured in the ESPN docuseries “30 for 30”: ‘The Best That Never Was.’ and told campers to "make the right choices and be patient in the process. You have to be disciplined throughout life. If you don’t have discipline, you can’t make it.”

It was the first of many football camps that the Fatherhood Program of Families First Mississippi and Coach Marcus Dent plan to put on at Coahoma Community College.
