When the official football schedules for the prep squads in the “Southern Six” were announced over the Summer, Biloxi was originally scheduled to have an open date this week.
In fact, that off week was still planned for the Indians even still just about a week ago. But that’s not the case any longer.
The Biloxi High Athletics Administration announced last week as the Indians were preparing for their home game against Pascagoula that BHS would indeed be in action this week and not have the open date as originally planned.
The Indians are now set to head to the Mobile, Ala., area Friday night and face home-standing LeFlore High. Due to a scheduling conflict, the Rattlers were set to have back-to-back off weeks this Friday and then again next week. So the schools agreed on a game this week which will be played at LeFlore High School.
Both teams are coming off disappointing performances, as Biloxi lost its first home game of the season 27-7 to Pascagoula last week and LeFlore fell to Gulf Shores 44-0 on the same night. Biloxi is 0-2 so far on the road this year, with losses at Hattiesburg and at Meridian.
LeFlore opened in the mid-1960s and was originally known as Toulmlinville High School. The name of the school was changed in the early 1980’s.
Biloxi is 2-3 on the season and LeFlore is 1-4. The Indians will have a bit of a short week after this game Friday night, as the Indians prepare to travel to long-time arch-rival Gulfport on Thursday night to begin Region 4-7A play at historic Milner Stadium.

East Central standout running back is this week’s 228Sports Player of the Week. The Hornet junior ran roughshod over St.Martin last week in a high-scoring 63-42 road win over the Yellow Jackets. Myrick produced one of the top individual performances in ECHS history as he ran for 338 yards on 24 carries and scored seven touchdowns. This all while being rotated in and out of the Hornet backfield with two other backs.
We at 228Sports also would like to give big props to Myrick’s offensive lineman for his success as well:
