A Family of Champions

CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Clinton Christian is enjoying its best football season in school history.

The Warriors find themselves competing for a state championship this season in the MAIS 8-man league.

The success can be attributed to a family like team atmosphere.

There is one family that is the centerpiece to this success, the Myrick family.

John Myrick, Sr. and his two sons, James and John, Jr. lead the way for the Warriors.

John, Sr. serves as the volunteer defensive coordinator for the Warriors.

James and John, Jr. are twins and are the top two rushers on the team.

John, Sr. played on the 1984 Alcorn State SWAC Championship team, and he hopes to pass the torch of success to his kids.
