All over the South, college athletes originally from Vicksburg are succeeding with their college teams.

Former St. Aloysius player DeMichael Harris started at running back for Southern Miss, racking up 60 yards on 11 carries in a 28-10 loss against Western Kentucky. St Al alumnus Drake Dorbeck started for the Golden Eagles at left tackle, blocking for Harris and quarterback Jack Abrahams.

Earlier this month, Dorbeck became the first Golden Eagle to win the Entergy Kent Hull Trophy, which goes annually to the best college offensive lineman in Mississippi.

Former Warren Central standout Chris Stamps had three tackles for Middle Tennessee State in a 38-17 win against Old Dominion. Stamps graduated from Warren Central in 2015 ranked the No. 10 player in Mississippi.

Former Vicksburg High standout Nick Anderson played linebacker for Tulane last night in a 34-31 loss against the University of Central Florida. And and another St. Aloysius player, Josh Price, started for Southeast Missouri in a 31-24 victory over Murray State.
