Mississippi Gulf Coast Bulldogs football tryouts set for February

PERKINSTON, MS (WLOX) - All high school seniors, current Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College students and anyone interested in becoming a member of the Bulldogs football team are invited to tryout on February 11 at A.L. May Memorial Stadium in Perkinston.

MGCCC head coach Chad Huff and his coaching staff will open the tryouts at 4:00 p.m. and anyone who wants to participate must bring tennis shoes, cleats, shorts, sweats (if the weather is chilly) and a highlight video if available.

St. Martin senior Jacorey Williams, the 2014 WLOX All-Around High School Football Player of the Year will most likely be in that number on February 11.  He's only 5' 4" and weighs 135 pounds.  However he did it all at St. Martin and is an outstanding punt and kickoff returner.  He netted 35 yards on 10 kickoff returns this past season. He made 70 tackles on defense including 47 unassisted and accumulated over 12-hundred yards rushing and receiving.

He told WLOX last week that he would be trying out at various camps and would love a chance to prove what he can do on the next level.  His lack of size has junior and other colleges shying away from Williams, but if you looked at his highlight reel, he's the real deal.  Jacorey can play and is looking for someone to give him a chance.
