POPLARVILLE – Pearl River Community College opens its 93rd season of intercollegiate football Thursday night, as the Wildcats travel to Clarksdale to battle Coahoma.

Kickoff at James E. Miller Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Football Scrimmage

POPLARVILLE – There are still some personnel decisions yet to be made before next week’s season-opening kickoff, but it appears that Pearl River Community College will go into battle with redshirt sophomore Mac Lowrie as its quarterback.

Lowrie, a transfer from Boston College, completed 11 of 16 passes for 184 yards, and guided the No. 1 offense on two long scoring drives against the back-up defense as the Wildcats conducted their final scrimmage of preseason Thursday night under the lights at Dobie Holden Stadium.

Football Scrimmage

POPLARVILLE – Pearl River Community College football fans got their first look at the 2015 Wildcats, as head coach William Jones put his team through its first extended scrimmage of the preseason Saturday morning at Dobie Holden Stadium.

“At times, it looked like the expectations we have,” Jones said. “Obviously, there were some mistakes. But that’s part of it. That’s why you scrimmage and that’s why you practice, and we did have 10 guys who were banged up that didn’t play.

The Wildcats Prepare for Upcoming Season

POPLARVILLE – The Pearl River Community College football team completed its first week of preseason practice Tuesday night with a spirited session of drills under the lights.

The Wildcats are hard at work preparing for the 2015 season opener at 7 p.m. Aug. 27 at Coahoma.

“We looked pretty good; we’re just beat up a little bit,” said third-year coach William Jones. “Guys have been running around all summer with shorts on, then they get in pads and helmets, start getting after it. So you’re going to have some bumps and bruises.”
