D'Iberville Warriors ready for the second round of the 6A State Playoffs

You can never count out D'Iberville. When the game is on the line, the Warriors have a knack of getting under the win column. D'Iberville rallied from 14-points down to upend Meridian in overtime Friday night.

Coach Buddy Singleton said, "I think that's the mark of a champion. This year we've been in three overtimes ball games and we've won three overtime ball games.

Offensively running back Quantrell Reddix has exploded for 11-hundred-86 yards rushing. He gets those tough yards and has a knack of finding the end zone, bagging 14 touchdowns on the season.

Quarterback Jo Jo Warrick directs the Warriors offensive attack. He has passed for over 800 yards with Rashad Moore and Scoby Bender his favorite receivers.

Warrick also keeps defensive teams honest with his running ability.

6-3, 283 pound offensive lineman Conner Kelly says Warrick gets the job done. He added, "He steps up and establishes his role and does what he's got to do and he does it. He excels."

A big reason for D'Iberville's success is the Warriors defense. Linebacker Tyler Schankin has piled up over 100 tackles and #26 will be taking aim on Petal's quarterback, running backs and wide receivers.

Schankin said, "I think the strongest part of our defense is the defensive line and linebackers because we proud ourselves on taking away the run and force the offense to throw the ball so we can capitalize on their miscues."

If the game goes into overtime, Warrior fans know D'Iberville has a history of winning those tight games.

The Warriors lost their two games by a combined total of six points.
