St. Stanislaus & Purvis meet for the 4A South State Championship tonight in the Bay

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) -

 St. Stanislaus head coach Bill Conides has developed a high octane offensive attack one that has sophomore quarterback Myles Brennan throwing the football to a host of receivers. In 13 games, Brennan has 5,008 yards passing with 55 touchdowns.  He's the leading passer in the nation.

The Rockachaws defense will lineup against a Purvis offense that leans heavily on its quarterback, Nathan Roseberry.  The senior is a little guy when you consider he's 5-7 and weighs 147 pounds.
He may be small in stature, but he plays a lot bigger.

Conides said, "He was a sophomore when we played them last.  He is just a tough hard nosed kid who puts his nose down and gets a lot of positive yards.  He you can tell the kind of poise and leadership the he hast by the way he plays and what he has shown on film so far.  We're certainly going to get a challenge from him."

Roseberry has been compared to Hancock quarterback Chase Fagan.

He's a leader who ignites excitement and finds a way to keep the offense heading in the right direction.  Roseberry along with running backs Levi Sumrall, Steven Curtis, Carlos Woodard and Cody Slate net 6.7 yards per carry.

Rockachaws defensive lineman Jordan Bradford said, "We know we've got to stop the turn and I think good things will happen if we do that."

If St. Stanislaus can upend Purvis on Friday, the Rockachaws would advance to the 4A Title game on December 6th at 3:00 p.m. at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville on the campus of Mississippi State facing the Greenwood-Noxubee County winner.
