4A South State Championship Preview: Poplarville vs Columbia

Nothing goes better together than turkey and football practice and Poplarville can attest to that.

The Hornets are practicing over Thanksgiving break for the sixth consecutive year as they prepare for their 4-A South State title battle with Columbia Friday.

23-1 in the their last 24 games in November, the South State champs three years running have a history of putting in work over the holiday.

Poplarville’s defense has averaged just under 11 points allowed thus far this season, including two shutouts.
