A good all-star
It was one last opportunity for a talented group of athletes to play high school football. But that wasn’t the best part.
“It was fun – playing with a good bunch of guys and getting to know new people,” said Brantley Harris of Potts Camp. “We had a great coaching staff. It was a big honor.”

Benton County wraps up productive spring
By BARRY BURLESON
The Benton County football program, still in its infant stages, is making strides.
Those steps forward included some work this spring, led by head coach Eric Rice. He is entering his second season in charge of the three-year-old Buccaneer program.
Behind The Scoreboard
The Memphis Grizzlies, in a history-making run to the Western Conference finals, added a couple of more accolades.
Memphis’ big man, “Big Spain” (Marc Gasol), had already been tapped as the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year. This sparked much discussion when the first and second teams of the NBA’s All Defensive Teams were identified. Gasol was on the second team. Tony Allen and Mike Conley both placed higher in the voting. How does this make sense?
Marshall hosting sports camps
Youth baseball and football camps are set for early June at Marshall Academy.
The camps are for those entering the second through seventh grades next school year.
Fifty-two participate in 5K
The third annual “Give Your Tush a Push” 5K Walk/Run on May 4 was a big success.
The event, sponsored by the Town of Byhalia, raises money for the American Cancer Society. More than $1,400 has been raised this year.
