Let me be the first to welcome you to SBLive Mississippi, your new hub for high school sports news.
SBLive Sports is the official digital content partner of the MHSAA and we have big plans to give Mississippi high school athletes and fans the coverage they deserve.
This site is a dream I’ve had for years – a place where high school sports fans in my home state could go to find out how many yards their local star racked up on Friday night, how many buckets she made.
To those of us who call it home, the Magnolia State is a special place. Our rich history, tropical climate and beautiful landscape may not make the cover of many travel magazines, and that’s okay. Our top resource has been, and always will be, the people that make up our state.
And when it comes to Mississippians, the one thing we all have in common is our love for sports. You won’t find more passion on display than in the stadiums and arenas of the state’s high schools, year-in and year-out.
Perhaps that’s why the Magnolia State has produced so many stellar athletes over the decades. These sports heroes come from big cities such as Jackson, Tupelo and Gulfport, but also from the tiny communities like Drew, Kiln and Mt. Olive.
The stories of those athletes, and today’s generation, deserve to be shared, and that’s the goal of the SBLive Mississippi team. While outlets across the state are cutting their investment of preps coverage, we’re just getting started. As we earn your trust, we hope you will come with us and help us tell as many of these stories as possible.
At the end of the day, it’s about recognizing hard work and celebrating our greatest asset – the achievements of our next generation of sports heroes.
So, if you see us out there on the sidelines this fall, give us a shout. Let’s have some fun.
