McInnis not playing, but still in the game

Todd McInnis Todd McInnis
HATTIESBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Todd McInnis is one of the best pitchers ever to take the mound for Southern Miss. During his Golden Eagle career, McInnis totaled school records in wins (33) innings pitched (395.1) and games started (68). He also was part of the only USM team to make the College World Series and twice won C-USA pitcher of the year.

Now McInnis is back at his alma-mater, trying to help the current USM team as a volunteer assistant coach.

After his college career wrapped up in 2011, McInnis was taken in the 25th round by the St. Louis Cardinals. He pitched two seasons in that organization, making it as high as their single-A team, the Palm Beach Cardinals.

But after the 2012 season he decided the minor league life wasn't for him and gave up his playing career. McInnis always knew he was interested in coaching and was given an opportunity to pursue that when Southern Miss hired him in December as a volunteer assistant coach.

McInnis, who was teammates with a few of the guys still on this years roster, brings an ability to relate to the players because of his age and expertise because of the success he had at the college level.

    For consecutive years the match-up between Palestine and No. 9 Van is our Red Zone Game of the Week. The Vandals and Wildcats have met in each of the past three seasons, and Van has come out on top every time. The 2016 game however, was a 3 point contest at halftime. That is before Van quarterback Garrett Moseley and company pulled away. Now a senior, Moseley and Van are off to a 3-0 start while averaging nearly 50 points per game. Palestine meanwhile is 2-1.

    Stephen f. Austin head football coach Clint Conque paid a visit to the Rose City this afternoon. It's perfect timing to pump up the program, considering the Jacks are coming off a dramatic last second win over Incarnate Word. Put on by the alumni association, Conque was the featured speaker at a Lumberjack networking event. Coach Conque got to brag a little about SFA's first victory of the year. Not to mention that despite a rough non-conference, the Jacks are 1-0 in South...More >>
