The regular season has passed, and we have re-adjusted our rankings for the players in the Magnolia…
Lampley to Carry Home State Banner
"I found out when they released the list," said Tracey Lampley. "I got a text message from a friend who is always on the internet. Coach didn't tell me ahead of time. He told me he wanted it to be a surprise. He called me later and we talked about it. I was real excited." Lampley's selection to the roster is the culmination of many years of hard work. The talented running back reports he has always wanted to participate in the annual border war against the Alabama All-Stars. "I have always wanted to play in that game," said Tracey. "When I was little I used to always think about that. We can get out there and see who the best is. I am real excited about it. It's always been a dream of mine and now it's coming true." The roster has more than it's fair share of players Tracey is familiar with. He reports he is anxious to play alongside his fellow All-Stars. "I think we have the players that can go over there and win," said Lampley. "I want to get together with all those boys. I am really looking forward to playing with all of them. I got to play with a lot of them this summer at the combine in Tupelo. We're pretty much getting that same team together." Before Tracey can take the field with his fellow Mississippians, he and his high school teammates have some unfinished business to attend to. The 11-0 War Eagles have an important second round playoff game to play this Friday night. "We have Picayune (9-2) this week," said Tracey. "We watched film of them today. They have some big guys on the defensive line, but they play both ways. Maybe we can wear them down a little bit when they are on offense." Lampley holds offers from Alcorn State, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and UAB. He may be on the verge of adding another to his list. "Ole Miss it talking about offering me," said Tracey. "I am supposed to call them back and talk to them some more about it. They want to see my highlight video before they offer me. "I haven't set any visits up yet, but I know I am going to visit Mississippi State and Southern Miss. Right now I have everybody even. I don't have a favorite."
