For a George County baseball team that’s been to the state championship series two out of the past three years, there’s only thing left for the Rebels to do.
They’re not afraid of looking ahead towards the ultimate goal of finally capturing that ever-elusive 6A state crown. Led by Mississippi State signee Logan Tanner and South Alabama signee Trevor McDonald, George County is primed to make yet another deep post-season run, coming off a two game sweep of Ocean Springs in the first round.
Next up is a tough second round matchup against Brandon, but Head Coach Brandon Davis is already calling his team’s shot. George County Head Baseball Coach Brandon Davis said, “We’re going to win a state championship, we’re going to. This is the team that’s been built, put together to do it and we feel like that it’s time. I can just see it in their eyes. They just, they won’t lose. They don’t want to lose, they’re going to do everything they can at practice, everything they can when we get there to make sure that we win the game. We have eight wins left, eight wins and we win a state championship and that’s what we’re trying to do. We’re not trying to just go to the state championship, we’ve done that. We’re trying to win it, and that’s our goal.”
The Rebels lost the championship series to DeSoto Central in 2018 and Madison Central in 2016. They will lead off their upcoming series on the road with game one at Brandon scheduled for 7 p.m. tomorrow.
