“From the leadership at USM and throughout the City of Hattiesburg to state-wide businesses and fans, we appreciate the support of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Gridiron Classic (MHSAA Football State Championships) and are very happy to be returning for another year,” said MHSAA Executive Director Rickey Neaves.
“Our friends at USM never blinked when we called and gave less than 45 days of notice that we had a conflict at Veterans Memorial in Jackson,” Neaves added. “As always, they eagerly welcomed us and did a fantastic job helping us showcase our student-athletes and coaches.”See a typo? Report it here.
