Mississippi Prep football dominates first home game ever

The Mississippi Prep School Hurricanes hosted their first home game of the school’s inaugural season Saturday at the Salvation Army Kroc Center Stadium.

The team took on CMP Prep Academy out of Lafayette, Louisiana and won 34 to 6.

Mississippi Prep is an independent nonprofit college prep and academics support program that provides a postgraduate or ‘gap year’ targeting a half academic semester.

The school is the only post-graduate prep school football program based out of Mississippi.

The school gives it students the opportunity to further their academic achievements while competing in sports and searching for better college opportunities. Head Coach Scott Nichols said, “I’m unbelievably blessed to be asked to be put in this position. These guys, they work their hearts out. They just want another chance and I wanna give them another chance to get to that level.”

Quarterback Calvo Camp said, “At the end of my senior year, I didn’t know what was going to happen and a door opened and it’s something I honestly don’t think I’ll ever be able to repay.”

The Hurricanes next home game will be against North Palm Beach Prep on September 18th.
