Published 11:55 am Thursday, August 27, 2015

Brookhaven Academy (0-1),  under the direction of second-year coach Blake Purvis, took on a very explosive Prentiss Christian Saints team last week, falling 39-13.

This week, the Cougars are preparing for another tough test as they visit Jackson to battle the Central Hinds Cougars.

BA’s top offensive performer last week was senior quarterback William King with 10-of-19 passing for 70 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, senior Roger Rushing led the Cougars with eight tackles. Connor Griffin and Grant James had six stops each.

My prediction:  In a battle of Cougars, Central Hinds will win 35-21.
