By A.J. Giardina – bio | email

 

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Grand Rapids (10-1) captured the Midwest Conference Championship.  The Raiders rank number three in the nation in total offense, piling up 458 yards per game.  Grand Rapids defense is rock solid against the run, allowing only 70 yards per contest.

"Grand Rapids is a very explosive football team," said Gulf Coast head coach Steve Campbell.  "They're well coached and have a number of outstanding athletes."

Quarterback James Stallons has passed for 2,039 yards with 19 touchdowns.  Running back-quarterback Terrance Moore rushed for 542 yards with 10 touchdowns and added 8 passing touchdowns.

Gulf Coast (9-2) defeated Co-Lin 31 to 17 in the MACJC Championship game on Saturday and the Bulldogs will be the host team in the Mississippi Bowl for the second time in the last three years.  Gulf Coast crushed Georgia Military College 41-7 in 2008.

The Bulldogs rank second in total offense in the junior college ranks, netting 466 yards an outing.  Quarterback Clayton Moore has tossed 19 touchdown passes delivering 15 of those TD passes into the hands of wide receiver Javon Bell.  Running back James Gillum rushed for 1,241 yards and 15 touchdowns.

The Mississippi Bowl payout for each team will be $10,000.  Other bowl organizations pay out $7,500 per-team.
