POPLARVILLE – Mark Johnson has finally had time to sit down, relax and think about his future, after a busy two years as a two-sport standout for Pearl River Community College.
POPLARVILLE – Seven players for Pearl River Community College were selected to the MACJC All-State teams this past weekend, including two on the All-State First Team.
Wildcat quarterback Markevion Quinn and offensive lineman Gerald Bell earned first-team honors in leading PRCC to a 5-4 overall record (4-2 in the South Division), the school’s first winning season since 2014 and only the second since 2010.
WESSON – It was mission accomplished for Pearl River Community College Saturday afternoon, as the Wildcats finished the 2017 football season on a strong note.
It will be a confident group from Pearl River Community College that will make the trip to Wesson Saturday to battle Copiah-Lincoln in the Wildcats’ football season finale.
PRCC kept its hopes of a winning season intact last week with a stirring 31-27 homecoming upset of 15th-ranked Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Wildcats (4-4 overall, 3-2 division) battle the Wolves at 3 p.m. Saturday at Stone Stadium on the Co-Lin campus.
Coming off a hard-fought defeat at the hands of Jones County, Pearl River Community College gets no respite, as the Wildcats welcome Mississippi Gulf Coast to the PRCC campus for homecoming.
Kickoff at Dobie Holden Stadium in the South Division clash of South Mississippi rivals is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday.
The Wildcats (3-4 overall, 2-2 division) put up a game fight against 14th-ranked JCJC last week, falling 52-31. Gulf Coast (5-2, 3-1) is still very much in the MACJC playoff picture after rolling over Southwest last week 52-13.
Too many big plays proved to be too much for Pearl River Community College in the 87th Cat Fight against Jones County.
The Wildcats allowed scoring plays of 44, 78 and 93 yards in the first half, and never recovered, as the Bobcats defeated PRCC 52-31 Saturday afternoon at Dobie Holden Stadium.
Pearl River dropped to 3-4 overall and 2-2 in the South Division. Fourteenth-ranked JCJC (6-1, 4-0) remained tied with Hinds for first place in the division.
When Pearl River Community College needed big plays against Southwest Mississippi, the Wildcats were able to deliver.
Too many self-inflicted mistakes proved too much for Pearl River Community College to overcome Thursday night against Hinds.
The Wildcats committed five turnovers and eight costly penalties as the Eagles rolled to a 42-16 victory in South Division football action at Dobie Holden Stadium.
PRCC evened its record at 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the division. Hinds remained undefeated at 3-0 and 2-0.
“They beat us in the second half,” said PRCC coach Ted Egger. “They didn’t do anything we didn’t expect. We just beat ourselves tonight.”
Markevion Quinn made his first career start for Pearl River Community College one for the ages.
Quinn, a freshman from Ruleville, was pressed into service due to an injury to starting quarterback Justin Agner, and all he did completely steal the show.
Quinn accounted for 433 yards of offense and four touchdowns, leading the Wildcats to a 59-40 victory over East Central in the South Division opener for both teams.
PRCC improved to 2-1 overall; East Central dropped to 1-2.
Pearl River Community College looks to get back on track and open South Division the right way this week when the Wildcats make their first road trip of the season to East Central.
Kickoff Thursday at Bailey Stadium in Decatur is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
PRCC (1-1 overall) suffered its first loss of the season last week in a 34-21 defeat to No. 5 Northwest at Poplarville. The Wildcats fell behind 27-0 midway through the second quarter and were unable to overcome the deficit.
