MGCCC football signs 25 from 2014 high school class

PERKINSTON, Miss. (WLOX) - The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Bulldogs announced its 2014 football signing class, which is the initial group under first-year head coach Chad Huff and includes 14 players who played at high schools on the gulf coast.

Picayune running back Preston Dedeaux, who was the 2013 WLOX Offensive Player of the Year, joins D'Iberville fullback Robert Lamey as the only two players who are listed as athletes in the backfield.

The Bulldogs also inked Gulfport's Thad Miller and St. Stanislaus' Tyler Allen, who were quarterbacks at their respective schools and led them to playoff berths this past season.

"I want to thank my coaches for hitting the ground running and getting together a great recruiting class," Huff said. "We were able to fill a lot of needs. The talent was good here in our area. It fit right in with what we needed."

Gulf Coast also signed two defensive players from Gulfport High School -- defensive end Chris Johnson and linebacker Adrian Mullins.

Linebacker Austin McIntosh and offensive lineman Anthony Santos join Lamey as the other two D'Iberville seniors to sign with the Bulldogs.

MGCCC won eight times compared to two losses in its 2013 season, which ended after a 45-28 loss to NJCAA national champion East Mississippi in the MACJC semifinals.

    Over the years, Rice has earned a reputation for winning close baseball games, and Coach Wayne Graham said the reason for that was very simple. “Well, if you’ve got good relief pitching, you look real smart,” Graham said shortly after watching his closer, Glenn Otto, surrender only a walk over the final 3 1/3 innings of Rice’s 4-3 victory over Old Dominion Thursday in the second round of The First, A National Banking Association, Conference USA Championship. ...More >>
