St. Stanislaus Football: 100 years of tradition Mississippi high school football began on December 9, 1905, when Yazoo City hosted Winona in the state’s first prep football game.
The game was won by Yazoo City by the score of 5-0. One would think that a field goal and a safety comprised the final score; however, back 110 years ago a touchdown was worth five points. The first prep touchdown scored in Mississippi is credited to Penard Magruder. Oct 6, 2015, 19:35
SSC scores 47-29 homecoming win over Vancleave The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws played an extremely tough non-division schedule to start their 100th season of football. They entered Friday night's game against Division 8-4A foe Vancleave with a 2-3 overall record.
By the end of the contest, the Rocks (3-3, 1-0) had evened their overall record, earned a division win and left no doubt that they could put up points at will as they defeated the Bulldogs 47-29. With the exception of three turnovers and a couple of trick plays, the Rocks could have really swamped the Bulldogs. Oct 3, 2015, 00:16
