St. Stanislaus has waited a full-year for this opportunity to play in the Class 4A title game


St. Stanislaus has waited an entire year to get revenge after dropping a 48-27 decision to Noxubee County in the 2014 Class 4A State championship game.

The 11 and 3 Rockachaws were determined to make their way back and they were hoping that Noxubee County would also crack the championship game for the second consecutive season.

They did.  So the rematch is set to kickoff 3 p.m. Saturday, this time at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford.

If the Rockachaws are to get over the top and raise the championship trophy, quarterback Myles Brennan must get enough time to loaf the football to an array of talented receivers.

Brennan has passed for 4-thousand-980 yards with 51 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions. Chase Rogers, Owen Betz, Corbin Blanchard and Darius Pittman have been his favorite targets all season long and if they can find open space, Brennan will get them the football.  

Brennan said, "The offensive line has been great giving me three to four seconds which is perfect for me to go through my reads and even if the pocket collapses, I'm still able to escape the pressure and make plays just because of the coaching that has been given me throughout the off-season."

The Rockachaws defense has made giant strides in recent weeks and they must come up big on Saturday against the Tigers.

Noxubee quarterback Timorrius Conner has passed for 2,721 yards with 21 touchdowns.  The Tigers enter the title game with 11 wins and 4 losses.  Noxubee County had 7 starters out with injuries during the season and that was a big reason for the Tigers suffering 4 defeats.  They should be close to 100 percent healthy.

Bring it on!  

Tyler Bouldin is in Oxford and he'll have a full report on the Class 4A championship game Saturday at 6.
