MGCCC Football preview

Over its last 13 games, the Mississippi Gulf Coast football team has played Itawamba Community College three times. So, it’s only fitting when the Bulldogs take the field for 2017 they’ll be facing that same familiar foe yet again.
The Indians come to town for MGCCC’s home opener tomorrow, making that their fourth meeting in the last 14 games. It’s a different Gulf Coast team than the one that lost to Itawamba in last year’s season opener with the additions of reverse transfers like Quarterback Torrance Gibson from Ohio State. Together, the Bulldogs look to build on a .500 season and a first round playoff exit. “It’s important. Gulf Coast has a great facility, a great program and we want to keep that tradition going. Help this team win a state championship,” said Gibson.
MGCCC Head Football Coach Chad Huff said, “We’re all in at Bulldog ways. Be unselfish, do the little things right and do better every day. And if we’ll focus and take one day at a time, one game at a time. It’s the biggest game of the year, of our lives, it’s the next football game. We need to prepare like that and be ready for it, so looking forward to 2017.”
The Bulldogs and Indians kick things off from the Perkinston Campus at 7 p.m. Thursday night.
