The 40-member team of top Mississippi high school stars will battle Alabama in the annual talent…
Morrow Knows the Way
Joe Morrow profile "We have George County this Friday," said Joe. "We saw tape them play against Petal. They are real good at running the ball up the middle. "Defensively we feel like we need to mix it up and hold them on offense. I feel like we should have a good game." The outcome of this week's contest, the regular season finale, will determine the playoff seed and traveling destination for the Greyhounds. "If we beat George County, then we will be #3 in the district and I think we would go to Brandon and if we lost, then we go to Meridian as a #4," said Joe. "We're going to be on the road either way. We just want to close out with a win tomorrow night and then see what happens in the playoffs." The four star receiver is happy to see his future team earn a spot in the post season as well. He has plans to go see the Bulldogs play in two weeks unless his own football travels prevent it. "I went to Mississippi State when they beat Georgia. I went to a Southern Miss game when they played Marshall," said Joe. "I am planning on going to Mississippi State when they play Arkansas, but I will have to see how things are going with us then. we might still be playing." Morrow reports that he is getting regular phone calls from three college programs, but despite rumors to the contrary he has had not contact with another of his in state schools. "I talk to Mississippi State every week and then Coach Caldwell from Arkansas calls me and Coach Bradford from Southern Miss calls me too. "Mississippi State calls me every week and then sometimes I will give Coach Mullen a call and talk some with him. They are excited about me coming up there. "I haven't talked to a coach from Ole Miss since I went to the summer camp up there. I am not sure where any of that came from, but it's not coming from me." Joe reports that his pledge to the Maroon and White is as strong as ever. "I am strong with Mississippi State," said Morrow. "I gave my word to them and I am going to stick by that. My commitment is solid." The Scout National 300 member was recently selected to play in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game. The Ocean Springs standout reports that he plans to do his fair share of recruiting while he is in Mobile with many of his fellow commitments. "I was proud to get an invitation," said Joe. "DeAndre (Brown) and J.T. (Travis Dickson) got to play in it. It's going to be good to play with the best players in the state. "I am going to be trying to get those other guys at the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game to come up there with me too." Morrow reports that his recruiting efforts are not limited to just the 2011 signing class. "I am trying to do my best to get the best players to go to Mississippi State," said Joe. "I told Travon Travis from Gulfport that he needed to come with me to State. "We have been talking a lot since we played them. He's just a junior, but he said he's really liking State right now."
