At left, sophomore receiver Corey White hauls in a pass. It was the Vikings’ last practice before facing South Panola in Batesville in the first round of the playoffs Friday night at 7:30. The Vikings (9-2), whose practice was marred by rain on Wednesday, are led by fullback John Hicks, quarterback Brett Morgan, defensive linemen Thad Henderson and Corey Nettle and linebacker Tyler DeRossette. Tailback James Dean and linebacker Cory Herring pace Panola (6-4). Both teams have won Class 5A state championships WC in 1988 and 1994 and the Tigers in 1993 and 1998. South Panola beat WC for the title in ’93. If Warren Central wins, it will host the Clinton-Tupelo winner Nov. 17. (The Vicksburg Post/PAT SHANNAHAN)
