Durant High School has ended their season two years in a row in the 1A state title game. The Tigers have come up one play short of winning the state championship in both appearances. Running back Cortez Frizell has proven to be one of Mississippi's top high school running backs. He is hopeful that he can continue his playing career on the college level next fall.

"I am taking an official visit to Delta State in January," said Cortez. "I know I still have time for things to happen for me, so I am not worried about all of that."

Frizell rushed for 1,800 yards this season and the talented running back came up just one touchdown short of Dicenzo Miller's state record.

"I feel like I had a real good year," said Frizell. "When I realized I was going to be one short of the record, I thought about all of those games when I didn't play in the second half because we were winning.

"It would have been nice to get it, but I can't do anything about it now."

Even though football season ended this past Friday afternoon, Cortez is still keeping busy.

"I am working out with the basketball players now," said Frizell. "I am not sure how much I am going to play. We're working on that now, but I am staying shape just trying to get ready for the future."

The Durant standout has only lost six games in his four year high school career and two of those games have come in the 1A state title game.

To say Frizell knows a thing or two about winning is quite the understatement.

"I did the best I could to help my team," said Cortez. "I am just waiting to see what happens now and what schools are interested in me."
