Washington School quarterback Eric Brozovich and Simmons linebacker Lazarius Chase highlight a list 50 Mississippi players set to play Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in the inaugural Who’s the Mann High School Classic on Saturday in Baton Rouge.
The Mississippi squad, who have been practicing recently at Mississippi College, will play against a team of Louisiana players. The game gives high school athletes the chance to impress college scouts.
Brozovich, a Delta State baseball signee, was named the Delta Democrat Times’ Preseason Offensive Player of the Year. Chase, who suffered a season-ending injury early in the season, was tabbed the Delta Democrat Times’ Preseason Defensive Player of the Year.
Other area players selected to the team include: Indianola Academy’s Cody Reynolds and Cody Maxey; Cleveland’s Jahmel McIntosh; Pillow Academy's Brandon Milner; Charleston’s Quinton Harris; South Panola’s Marcus Henry and William Hentz; and Calhoun City quarterback J.R. Jennings.
2 MDCC players decide on future
Mississippi Delta Community College defensive lineman Tevin Wells has signed with Troy University, according to reports.
Wells —a 6-2, 275 pound lineman from Rolling Fork — also had interest from UAB and Murray State. He also played in the MACJC All-Star football game.
“I had a nice time hanging with the coaches, and the facilities were really nice,” Wells told the local media. “Plus, they’re a winning school.”
MDCC linebacker Blake Comminie also recently committed to Louisiana-Lafayette. The 6-2, 235 pound Edgard, La. native also considered several schools including Mississippi Valley State, Eastern Kentucky and North Alabama.
Comminie racked up 30 tackles and 11 sacks last season.
