Danley named all-star; Collins breaks record
By BARRY BURLESON
A Byhalia High School senior has been selected to play in the Bernard Blackwell All-Star Football Game.
Another Indian has shattered a school record.
Jamal Danley, a guard on offense and a tackle on defense for the Indians, will play for the North in the annual game Saturday, Dec. 17. The state all-star contest will be played at the Biloxi High School stadium and kick off at 12 noon.
“He is very deserving of being an all-star,” said Markeith Washington, head coach of the Indians. “We basically designed our new offense (based on a power running attack) around him this year. He has been a big asset to this football team.
“He is a captain on our team with many outstanding qualities. He is a great student athlete.”
Washington said the 6’3” and 265-lb. lineman, who finished the regular season with 12 sacks and 102 tackles, is being recruited by SEC schools.
Danley’s father, John, is an assistant coach at Byhalia. They are in their third season at Byhalia after moving from Greenville Weston, where Washington once coached.
“I was his coach in Greenville, too,” Washington said. “I’m very close to him.”
Andrey Collins, a junior for the Indians, has broken the Byhalia High School rushing record. In the 11 games of the regular season, he rushed for 1,942 yards and had close to 3,000 all-purpose yards. He scored 19 touchdowns, 17 rushing, one on a kickoff return and one receiving.
The Indians were ousted in the first round of the Class 3A state playoffs last weekend. They finished 6-6.
