Like Newport, Osceola is known for "reloading" at the running back position.
As a matter of fact, the junior Seminoles have a couple of "man-child" eighth-graders that must have the senior high licking its chops.
Although the Highland junior Rebel defense made the junior Noles earn their points, Osceola prevailed 22-0 on a rainy, cold Oct. 23 in Mississippi County.
"That's the bad news. Those guys are eighth-graders and man, are they talented. We had a hard time tackling them," said junior Rebel Head Coach Spencer Hill. "Our offense couldn't get much going out in the mud. We couldn't run any traps, which really limits our offense when we can't pull and trap."
It should be noted that Highland fans outnumbered the Seminole fans by 2-to-1.
Zach Brooks put Osceola on the board with a 31-yard sweep in the first half.
Jamal Jackson rushed in from nine yards out at the end of the third quarter.
Corliss Marshall added a 39-yard TD after a junior Reb fumble.
Running back Michael Moore led the junior Rebs with 38 yards on nine carries followed by Sterling Stowers with 12 carries and 34 yards. The offense didn't complete a pass in five tries.
