Sibling Speak

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

This off-season Callaway needed a new defensive coordinator, so one of their top senior defensive players started thinking who he'd like to play for his last year. After talking with his family, he decided they should keep it in the family.

Senior defensive end Breeland Speaks made the call to Marcellus Speaks, his older brother, to see if he wanted to come coach at Callaway. It all worked out and now the duo are reunited for this season.

Marcellus, a Provine grad and former JSU linebacker, has brought a new identity to the Callaway defense. He's humbled a talented group and made them accountable. So far it's worked as the Chargers have only allowed 20 points in 3 games, all wins.

This Friday will be a big test when they meet JPS rival Murrah.

Previous to 2017, the Red Raiders hadn't experienced a perfect start in 14 years.  "We're definitely not finished, but it was relieving just to get through the preseason. It's obviously a big deal, but it's not district. We still have work to accomplish," said Chance Amie, Tyler Lee quarterback. The Red Raiders will open up district play this Friday again...More >>
