am just ready to win a state championship before I leave here," added Josh Chestang. "We won Region 7-4A and now we want to win state. We have Picayune
Friday and we play the winner of West Jones/Laurel. If we win that game, we are

"I am having a solid season. Teams were not running to
my side, but week by week, they have been running more and more my way. I am mostly
