Pascagoula High School Wins Kroc Center 7 on 7 Shootout

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

It was a perfect setting for the Kroc Center 7 on 7 Shootout... brainchild of Kroc Center coordinator of athletics Barry Lyons and another coast resident.

Lyons said, "Thomas Miller, a college football official from Ocean Springs who is a friend of mine and a member of the Kroc Center staff discussed the 7 on 7 shootout with me several months ago. We put the wheels in motion and we're very proud and thankful that this day has come."

Seven locals school competed... St. Patrick, St. Martin, Moss Point, Pascagoula, Pass Christian, Harrison Central and Ocean Springs.

Greyhounds head coach Ryan Ross says he takes advantage of competing in 7 on 7 camps.

"Everybody is going to the spread look offensively," Ross stated. "I think it actually keeps the kids competitive during the summer and keeps them together as a team. Overall I like it."

Pass Christian head coach Casey Wittmann says he'll use this shootout to help find a starting quarterback.

Wittmann said." We've got three kids vying for it. We use these games to help in the process of developing the top quarterback. By the end of the summer one of them will win the starting job."

Lewis Sims expects his Pascagoula Panthers to get better thanks to the 7 on 7 competition.

"First of all it's fun, " Sims said with a smile. He added, "Some people put in special plays for the 7 on 7 but we just try to concentrate on our kids in hopes of making our football team better."

The finals sent the Panthers under head coach Sims going up against arch-rival Moss Point.

The Tigers entered the finals undefeated while Pascagoula needed a win to set-up a final deciding game. The Panthers prevailed 14 to 7 forcing that final shootout.

In the facing seconds, game tied 6-all... Pascagoula quarterback Stacy Warren fires a touchdown strike to Caleb Caston...who was named the Kroc Center Shootout Most Valuable Player
