Athletic Director Ricky Ford

Former Northeast women’s basketball coach Ricky Ford left his “built Ford tough” mark on many Lady Tiger teams since coming to Northeast in 1981. After the 2010-11 season, Ford decided to hang it up and went into his victory lap through the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC). On March 7, 2011 Ford announced he was stepping down as women’s basketball coach at Northeast. Ford ended his career at Northeast with an overall record of 588-226. While wins have not been on the coach’s mind, the satisfaction of a job well done kept Ford going at Northeast for 30 seasons. Building success on and off the court was what Ford did since coming to Northeast Mississippi Junior College in 1981. During his 30-year coaching career, Ford only had four sub-.500 seasons and the first of those did not come until his 2002-03 Lady Tigers finished 11-12 but even it finished as the North Division runner-up. Within five years since taking over the Lady Tiger program in 1981, Ford had transformed the Lady Tigers into national title contenders that included a national runner-up finish in 1986 and a national championship in 1987. During Ford’s illustrious career, the Lady Tiger basketball coach led his team to 15 North Division titles, nine MACJC State Championships with 6 (six) of those state championships being consecutive and three Region XXIII crowns while leading the Lady Tigers to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s (NJCAA) national basketball tournament on three separate occasions. Ford went to the national tournament a final time in 2005-06 as the Lady Tigers

A t h l e t i c

captured the North Division, MACJC State and Region XXIII titles and finished the season as the nation’s No. 21-ranked team after appearing in the national event in Salina, Kan. Following his final national tournament appearance, Ford was honored as the Division I, District O, Region XXIII Coach of the Year - an award that is given to the head coach of each of the 16 regional championship teams. One year after his national tournament appearance, Ford continued his success in the MACJC as the veteran mentor led the Lady tigers back to the Region XXIII tournament for a twenty-fifth straight year as the Lady Tigers once again captured the North Division - their fourth straight division title - and successfully defended their 2006 MACJC State Title. Ford was appointed Dean of Student Services at the beginning of the 2011 spring semester following the retirement of Kenneth Pounders, and is currently in his sixth

year as athletic director for the college. His responsibilities as athletic director has Ford overseeing the day-to-day operations of an athletic department that features eight varsity sports, an all-female cheerleading squad and also coordinates the annual MACJC All-Star Football Classic game that is held each year in December. Prior to coming to Northeast, Ford built successful basketball programs at Booneville High School coaching the Lady Blue Devils for four years and the Blue Devils for a pair of seasons. Ford’s overall careen record stands at 676-253 and carries a winning percentage of 72.7 percent into retirement. An alumnus of Northeast and former Tiger basketball player under Kenneth Lindsey, Ford earned a bachelor’s degree from Mississippi State University and a master’s degree from the University of Mississippi. Ricky and his wife LuAnne have four children, Aaron, Lauren, Suzanne, and Ben.

Head Coach Ricky Smither

Ricky Smither C o a c h e s B i o g r a p h i e s

Northeast Head Football Coach Ricky Smither returns for his fifth year at the helm for the Tigers football program entering into the 2012 season. During the 2011 season, Smither continued to build the Northeast football team into a contender in the MACJC. Northeast finished as the North Division runner-up for the second consecutive year and qualified for the first round of the playoffs where the Tigers took the South Division champion -- Mississippi Gulf Coast -- to overtime. In his first year as head coach in 2008 Smither’s overall record was 1-8 however, he was able to improve to 2-6 overall in 2009 with three of the six losses going into extra periods. One of the biggest wins for Smither since becoming the go to guy at NEMCC came in a 28-21 victory over the Tigers arch rivals Itawamba Community College in September of 2009. However, in 2010, Smither proved that he was the man for the job as the Tiger football continued to get better as his team posted its twelfth winning season in the college’s 51-year football history when Smither’s troops finished with a 5-4 overall record and a 4-2 mark in the Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) North Division in 2010. Northeast’s 4-2 mark in the North Division helped the Tigers finish in a tie for second place in the ultra competitive North Division. Smither helped Northeast garnered national attention during week six of the season after the Tigers were able to knock off defending MACJC State Champion East Mississippi 49-42 in a shootout in Scooba 8

where Tiger running back Jaquise Cook (Ripley) Ran for 267 yards and four scores against the Lions. Cook was awarded the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Player of the Week honors following his week six performance. In addition to posting the team’s first winning season since 2005, under the direction of Smither, the Tiger football team also captured the attention of the national media when Northeast was included in the NJCAA National Top 20 Football Poll for the week of October 19, 2010 at No. 18 after the Tigers opened up the season 5-2. Smither’s journey to commander-inchief for NEMCC first presented itself back on July 3, 2008 when he became the college’s 13th head football coach in school history. Smither began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Delta State University in 1995, later accepting a coaching position at Cleveland (Miss.) High School in 1997. He made the move to community college

coaching in 1998, joining the staff at Coahoma Community College. From 19992006, Smither enjoyed stints at East Side High School (Miss.), H.L. Bourgeois High School (Louisiana), while also working at the Division-I level as an assistant coach at Mississippi Valley State University (200204). Smither came on board at Northeast as the assistant football coach, coaching up the offensive line, in February of 2007, before Smither accepted the job as the Tigers head coach. Coach Smither enjoyed success as the Tigers’ offensive line coach in his first season at NEMCC. His first o-line group at Northeast sported two four-year college signees: Reggie Wade (Jacksonville State) and Greg Magnifico (Belhaven). Smither graduated from Delta State University with a Master’s in Education. Ricky and his wife Lynn have two children; Russ and Kaitlyn.

Arnold

When Northeast was founded in 1948, Bonner Arnold served as physical education instructor, men’ basketball coach and athletic director. Arnold and legendary University of Kentucky Wildcat men’s basketball coach Adolph Rupp were friends and as a result of this friendship and the success of the Kentucky basketball program, Arnold wanted the school’s athletic teams to sport a similar nickname. “Fighting Tigers” was adopted as the school’s mascot. Later, the school’s athletic program grew to include men’s and women’s varsity sports. “Fighting” was dropped and the teams became known as the “Tigers” and “Lady Tigers.”

South ties series in annual All-Star contest Southwest Mississippi Community College quarterback Vintavious Cooper proved that he belonged in the 38th annual Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges(MACJC) All-Star Football Classic on Saturday, December 3. Cooper, who accounted for 163 total yards, was 10-of-12 through the air for 117 yards in leading the South All-Stars to a 14-9 win at Northeast’s Tiger Stadium. With the win, the South evened the overall series 18-18-2 as Northeast hosted its twenty-fifth straight all-star contest. En route to leading the South to the five-point win, Cooper was awarded the James H. “Wooky” Gray Award that goes to the contest’s Most Valuable Player. Cooper’s MVP award marks the second time in three years that a Southwest quarterback has received the honor. In 2009, Southwest signal caller Stanley Jennings was given the award following a 12-for-24 day that saw the him throw for 206 yards and three touchdowns in the South’s 28-0 shutout. After Mississippi Delta kicker Ridge Rochelle gave the North a 3-0 lead with 4:51 left in the first half, the South all-stars reeled offback-to-back scores en route to their eighteenth win in the series. Rochelle’s 31-yard field goal was set up by his Mississippi Delta teammate Dontarius Thomas who thwarted a South scoring drive with a 70-yard interception return to the South 31-yard line with just under 12 minutes left in the first half. Cooper wasted little time in getting the South on the board when the South All-Stars cashed in just over two minutes later. Cooper connected with Pearl River’s Jaquaa Peters on a 46-yard pass putting the South in the red zone and Pearl River’s Melvin German scampered in from five yards out with 2:20 showing giving the South a 7-3 lead after Northeast’s Taylor Earhart connected on the extra point try. Earhart donned the red South All-Star jersey since the South All-Stars did not have a kicker for the day. Rochelle had a chance to cut into the South lead but the Mississippi Delta place kicker’s 47-yard field goal attempt with 33 seconds left in the half was 16

blocked by the South. The South kept the pressure on the North early in the second half and after a great catch by Jones County’s Jonathan Ducksworth, Pearl River’s Jonathan Duncan punched in from five yards out with 18:37 left in the game. Earhart was true on his second extra point of the day giving the South a 14-3 advantage. Itawamba’s Camden Dallas made a game out of it late as the Indian signal caller found Northwest’s Deantae Smith on a 17-yard touchdown strike with 5:39 remaining in the game but the North’s two-point conversion attempt fell short leaving the South with the 14-9 advantage. North All-Stars got one more chance for the victory when the North defense led by Northeast players Anthony Payne, Frankie Lee, JeremiahBooth and Devin Lindsey forced a punt out of the South. Being without a kicker, the South was forced to use Jones linebacker Brion Jones as its punter and the North picked up good field position on the kick.

However, the South forced the North to turn the ball over on downs after a fourth and 14 play from the South 38 with 1:26 left in the game and ran out the clock for the victory. In post-game awards, Smith picked up the Hubert Tucker Award that went to the North’s Most Valuable Offensive Player as the Northwest wide receiver hauled in three catches for 35 yards and a touchdown. Peters earned the Keith Daniels Award for the South’s Most Valuable Offensive Player after hauling in a pair of passes for 56 yards. Jones picked up the South’s Most Valuable Defensive Player Award after recording an eight-tackle, two-sack performance for the South All-Stars. Itawamba’s Ashton Ballard picked up the North’s Most Valuable Defensive Award after picking off a pair of passes during the all-star event and Cooper was awarded the James H. “Wooky” Gray Award for the game’s overall most valuable player.

Tigers look to build on 2011 success

2 0 1 2 P r e v i e w

With last year’s success safely tucked away in the record books, fifth year head football coach Ricky Smither will look to lead his troops back to the Mississippi Association of Community & Junior Colleges (MACJC) playoffs in 2012. Northeast finished 6-4 overall after falling to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College 20-17 in overtime during the first round of the 2011 postseason. “It was a really hard loss for our kids to take,” explained Smither. “We worked so hard to start off the season undefeated at 5-0 and being nationally ranked. We had some tough losses after that great start but slid into the playoffs at the end. However, our inexperience with the playoffs showed up and we were unable to pull it out in overtime but we all learned a great deal from what happened. “For the few sophomores we have returning who participated in last year’s success and the tough loss in the playoffs, it left a bad taste in their mouth and I expect those guys to help lead the way this year even further into the postseason.”Smither lost over 20 sophomores and returns only a handful with playing experience on the junior college (JUCO) battlefield to this year’s roster. Leading the way for the offense will be returning tight ends Logan Stokes of Muscle Shoals, Ala., who has already committed to Louisiana State University (LSU), Donnell Chapman of Batesville and center Collin Stubblefield of New Albany, who played every snap for the Tigers last season. For defensive upper classmen leadership, the Tigers will look for sophomore defensive tackle Lavon Hooks of Atlanta, linebacker Dennis Draper of Batesville, linebacker Nick Thomason of Muscle Shoals, Alabama and cornerback Kareem Brown of New Albany to push the young defense into performing at the high level of production the defense obtained in 2011. Veteran coach Travis Macon will man the defensive coordinator headset for the 2012 season. “All these upper classmen should be prepared to lead,” Smither said. “They know what it’s like playing at the JUCO level and they have on-the-field experience 26

Tight end Logan Stokes (85) has already committed to Louisiana State University (LSU) but returns to lead the Tiger offense. that will help them step up in a leadership quarterback (6-5, 215) who can run and role this year and Coach Macon has paid throw. He came out of a winning program his dues as a coach and will definitely help where he led the Spartans to the postseason them reach their goal of winning.” and set all sorts of school records.” The key word for the 2012 Tiger footLipham was a two-time All District ball squad is “young” and this is also true 9-4A selection and holds the Spartans cafor their Division I-A transfer quarterback reer record for passing touchdowns (43) Matt Lipham who will be called upon to fill and passing yards (3,825) while only givthe void at the signal caller spot. ing up seven interceptions.

2 0 1 2 football for the Warriors. “These two guys are very intelligent and will push each other to get better,” explained Smither. “The problem will be who are they going to throw to? We’ve got to have some guys step up at the receiver position in order to help our quarterbacks be successful.” Northeast lost a pair of talented receivers after the 2011 season when Tres Houston signed with Arkansas State and Donte Barksdale joined the Delta State University Statesmen football team. “Losing guys like Tres and Donte is tough and they’re going to be hard to replace,” Smither said. “However, we do have few guys that played some at wideout late last year with Jamarius Tallie and Michael Bush (both from West Point), to go along with new players like Raymond Gee, Jr., who is a 6-4 kid who has great ball skills and also Demarrion Haynes, who can flat out fly.” In the backfield Smither will look for running back Jay Jones to pick up where he left off two years ago when Jones lead the way for Northwest Mississippi Community College and even before that Jones was a high school standout at Horn Lake. “I am really excited about this position and what Jay can bring to the table for us,” Smither said. “Jay runs very well, has great vision and can catch the ball extremely well out of the backfield. Backing him up will be Garrett Smith (Starkville) who is one of our sophomores who did play some last year -- who I am excited about -- to go along with Pascal Desir III (Jackson) another very young talented player. Clayton McCoy (Falkner) will be our halfback and should help clear some running lanes for these other guys.” With all this talent in the backfield, the Tigers will have to get some help from the big men up front in order to be successful.

P r e v i e w

Punter Jonathan Harrison (41) was one of the best in the state in 2011 and returns for his sophomore season with the Tigers. “We can talk about the guys catching the ball and throwing the ball and running the ball all day long but if those big guys up front don’t block…we are in trouble,” Smither explained. “Our entire line is returning from last year but the only one that played every snap is Collin,” Smither said. “Jonathan Braddock (Ripley) and Carlton Howard (Batesville) played some for us last year and we signed Anthony Kibler, a transfer from the University of South Florida, who should be a top notch player in this league.

We also signed some other young guys that could fill some voids and see some playing time as well like Travarius Love of Charleston and Logan Hall from Kossuth.” Newly hired offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Greg Davis will look to command the linemen and run the show for the Tigers’ offense in 2012. “Greg brings a lot of valuable experience to us,” Smither said. “He played at Texas Christian University and for the New York Giants and his coaching resume speaks for itself.” Smither has added another new hire -- defensive line coach Deljuan Robinson, who played at Mississippi State and has NFL experience with the Houston Texans and Carolina Panthers – who will put up the front line of defense for Northeast this season. “Deljuan is a tremendous teacher and he knows how to get his guys to play hard for him, his kids love him,” said Smither. “He will have Hooks leading the charge for his defensive front along with Ernesto Wynn, Rezean Prather and Maurice Booker.” Wynn hails from Augusta, Georgia while Prather is a Ripley native and Booker comes from Leighton, Alabama. Behind the front will be three linebackers that all return with playing experience with Thomason and Draper leading the charge next to J.R. White of Tuscumbia, Alabama. “Thomason is a hard nose player who is being highly recruited and Draper is like our “Honey Badger”, explained Smither. “Dennis is always 100 percent and a playmaker that can really run well and is everywhere it seems like. J.R. is a big solid kid who will give us some good strength in the middle. We also signed some other young guys like Nick Johnson (Olive Branch) who will see some playing time this year.” The last line of defense for the Tigers will obviously be the secondary and fans will not only see new faces in the defensive backfield but will also notice a new coach. Jonathan Webster will be the new defensive back’s coach and only has one returning player with junior college experience in Brown. “Webster is a tremendous coach and a great teacher,” said Smither. “He is another guy the kids really flock to and believe in.” Webster will have to look to replace some key starters in the secondary that moved on from last year’s team including Deion Belue, who inked with the University of Alabama, Jeremy Spikner, who inked with Troy University, and two big playmakers at the safety position in Frankie Lee and Devin Lindsey. “To be completely honest, I really think we have more talent overall in the secondary this year than we did last season,” explained Smither. “We got Dale Trimble here now who is a transfer from the University of Kentucky and is a great athlete to replace Belue, and of course Brown who was a great player for us in 2011. Our biggest surprise is Brian Walker, a transfer from Valdosta who will be at one of our safety spots along with Antione Wilson.” “Overall, we are just really talented this season but very young,” said Smither. “We have some guys that run really well and we are going to be a lot faster than we have ever been. The bottom line for us . . . will be chemistry. “We are young and we don’t have a lot of time to gel in this league so these guys will have to learn to trust each other and work 28

Running back Garrett Smith (21) is one of the returners on the offensive side of the ball for the Tigers. together in a hurry.” One aspect where Smither knows he can put his trust in is in special teams. Sophomore Jonathan Harrison returns as one of the premier punters in the league and should have another big season. Place kicker duties will be riding on the leg of newcomer Chris Cooper of Madison Central High School. “Cooper is amazing,” Smither said. “I don’t know why a Division I-A school didn’t pick him up because he has one of the strongest legs I have seen in a while. He made 63-yard field goals at practice and that is something special. On kickoff duty he is putting it way out of the back of the end zone and we hope he can continue that into the season.” “Harrison was the number two punter in the state last season and he just keeps getting better and better,” Smither said. “These two guys just make my job easier and make my decisions easier when it comes down to what options we go to during a game.” Northeast should give the fans plenty to cheer about in 2012 as the Tigers continue to do battle in the “Toughest League in America”.

Athletics prove to be among the best in 2011-12 Northeast athletics continued to prove that it was one of the best athletic programs in not just the Mississippi Association of Community/Junior College (MACJC) but in the nation as well. From the softball diamond, to the football gridiron to the basketball hardwood, Northeast’s athletic programs were continually ranked by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) as one of the best in the nation. Leading the way during the 2011-12 season was the Lady Tiger softball team that brought back a MACJC state runner-up trophy to Booneville. Under the guidance of head coach Jody Long, Northeast finished the season with a 32-19 record and posted a school-record for North Division wins with 17. During the course of the 2011-12 season, Northeast finished as the third team from the North Division but parlayed that finish into a state runner-up finish against Jones County at the MACJC State Tournament in Fulton and then continued its postseason momentum as Northeast was one of the last three teams left standing at the NJCAA Region XXIII Tournament in Clinton. Long’s Lady Tigers not only did work on the field but were successful in the classroom as well with seven member of the Northeast softball team being selected for NJCAA Student-Athlete Academic Awards and the team as a whole was honored by the NJCAA for its academic work when the Lady Tigers were ranked as the thirteenth best team in the nation with a 3.42 overall grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale. Northeast’s highlight of the year came during it annual StrikeOut Cancer doubleheader that saw redshirt freshman Jaisa Fox (Cincinnati, Ohio) throw a perfect game against Mississippi Delta and freshman pitcher Erin Dixson (Amherst, New York) followed up with a no-hitter in the nightcap. For her effort, Fox was named the NJCAA Pitcher of the Week and by the end of the season, Northeast was receiving votes in the NJCAA Top 20 Softball Poll. On the heels of the softball team’s success, Ricky Smither’s football team turned in a 6-4 record while playing one of the toughest schedules in the MACJC. During the course of the 2011 season, Northeast faced off against three teams that were ranked during the season including the eventual NJCAA national and MACJC state champion East Mississippi, sixth-place Mississippi Gulf Coast and Northwest Mississippi. After starting the season strong, Smither and crew were ranked as high as twelfth in the country during the October 4, 2011 NJCAA Top 20 football poll and capitalized on that 5-0 start to a place in the MACJC State Football Playoffs. Northeast carried South Division winner Mississippi Gulf Coast too overtime before falling on the Bulldogs’ home field 20-17. With the football team’s success, Northeast athletes were also selected for individual honors by the NJCAA. Deion Belue, a corner back from Tuscumbia, Ala., was named an NJCAA honorable mention All-American while Frankie Lee, a defensive back from Charleston, was picked as the NJCAA Player of the Week when the Tigers knocked off Northwest Mississippi in Senatobia behind Lee’s three interceptions. Under first-year head coach Brian Alexander, the Lady Tiger basketball team finished 9-15 overall but qualified for the MACJC State Basketball Tournament in Fulton with a dramatic 104-102 overtime win against Mississippi Delta on Sophomore Night at Bonner Arnold Coliseum in Booneville. Led by sophomore Anna Brooke Page of Belmont and Amber Jackson of Tupelo, the Northeast Lady Tiger basketball team adapted to Alexander’s style of play and ended up giving CopiahLincoln a run during the first round of the MACJC State Tournament before falling 76-63 to the Lady Wolves. Under Page and Jackson’s leadership, the Lady Tigers not only became a force on the hardwood but also became stewards in the classroom as well with Page and Bree Harris of New Site being selected for NJCAA Student-Athlete Academic Awards at the end of the season. In addition the NJCAA Student-Athlete Academic Awards, a handful of Lady Tigers were also members of the Iota Zeta chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society and Page and Jackson signed to play on the four-year level at Blue Mountain College and William Carey University, respectively. Under Kent Farris, Northeast’s baseball team once again advanced to the MACJC State Baseball Playoffs after knocking off rival Itawamba during a Sophomore Day doubleheader at Harold T. White Field in Booneville. After falling behind 8-0 to the Indians, Northeast responded with 18 unanswered runs over its next four at bats in run-ruling Itawamba 18-8 in six innings. The 10-run win on Wednesday, April 25 springboarded the Tigers into the MACJC State Baseball Playoffs where the Tigers played a marathon game one against Mississippi Gulf Coast that ended at 1 a.m. at Biloxi High School after the best-ofthree series was moved to Biloxi due to inclement weather. On the year, Northeast finished 18-28 but 13-10 in the North Division and

was the fourth seed from the division while eight Tigers went on to sign four-year scholarships. Taylor Bonifacio (Hurley), Daymon Eriksen (Grand Prairie, Texas), Morgan McCarley (Vina, Ala.) and Eric Wilson (Southaven) each signed with the University of North Alabama while Beau Cummings (Myrtle), Corey Smith (New Albany) and Trae Allison (Hernando) all agreed to become Toppers at Blue Mountain College. Blake Littlejohn of Pontotoc signed to play for the Majors at Millsaps College in Jackson. Under David Robbins, Northeast men’s basketball team started the season strong and posted a 7-1 mark at the Christmas holiday break and carried a 10-2 overall record into the January 18, 2012 NJCAA Top 20 poll where the Tigers were ranked thirteenth in the nation. Northeast continued to build on its early success and finished the year with a 14-9 mark and tied for fourth in the North Division but lost out on a tiebreaker with Itawamba for a spot in the MACJC State Basketball Tournament. However, the Tigers did have three players selected to the MACJC All-State team with Acie Vance (Ripley), Lavon Hooks (Atlanta, Georgia) and Jermaine Hollimon (Memphis, Tenn.) all being selected for postseason accolades. Vance was the North Division’s leading scorer with 16.9 points per game and finished second in the MACJC while Hooks led the North Division and the MACJC with 8.6 rebounds per game. Hollimon and Cedric Janes of Dyersburg, Tenn., were also selected to play in the MACJC North-South All-Star game in Decatur. Under the tutelage of first-year head coach Lynn Smither; the Tiger and Lady Tiger tennis teams saw a variety of success. In just her second match as tennis coach, Smither helped both the Tigers and Lady Tigers sweep nationally-ranked Hinds in Raymond and set the tone for the rest of the season. Northeast’s Lady Tiger tennis team finished with a 5-8 overall mark but advanced deep in the MACJC State Tennis Championships in Tupelo thanks to momentum from the last three matches of the regular season. Northeast finished the regular season with a three-match winning streak dispatching Holmes twice and East Central in a 10-day span. On the men’s side of the nets, Northeast’s Tiger tennis team posted a 3-10 overall record but came within one point of winning three other matches on the year dropping 5-4 decisions to Holmes, Copiah-Lincoln and nationally-ranked Mississippi Gulf Coast. During the season, the Tigers helped secure the sweep of nationally-ranked Hinds early in the year and completed the season sweep ofEast Central with 6-3, 8-1 decisions over the Warriors. Under first year head coach Mike Anderson, Northeast’s golf team recorded its highest finish of the year when it mattered the most. Northeast finished fifth at the NJCAA Region XXIII Tournament at Big Oaks in Tupelo -- an event the Tigers hosted. During the 2012 season, the Tigers started and capped their seasons with fifth place finishes – their best finishes of the year. In the opening Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) tour stop of the year hosted by Mississippi Gulf Coast, the Tigers finished in a tie for fifth and in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XXIII Golf Championships Northeast also brought home a fifth place finish. In between the two fifth place finishes, Northeast carded a seventh place finish at the second MACJC tour stop of the year hosted by Hinds Community College, a sixth place finish at the third tour stop of the year hosted by Copiah-Lincoln Community College. Northeast also came away with a seventh place finish at the fourth tour stop of the year hosted by East Mississippi Community College held at the Mississippi State University golf course and in their final regular season match, the Tigers rallied on the second day to finish sixth in the Northwest Invitational. At Riverbirch in Amory, Northeast marked a seventh place finish in the MACJC State Golf Championships hosted by Itawamba Community College before moving on to region. Under the direction of Jennifer Johnson, the 10-member Northeast cheerleading squad continued to show support for Tiger and Lady Tiger athletics and serve as an ambassador for the Northeast athletic program. From on the sidelines of a football game to the hardwood of a gymnasium, Northeast cheerleaders were on hand to cheer on the Tiger and Lady Tigers and actively engaged crowd support for the Northeast teams. Correl Hoyle of Tiplersville was chosen as the Tiger mascot “Spirit” for the 2011-12 team and engaged the crowd. Northeast’s cheerleading squad was not just limited to sporting events, Cheerleaders were a vital part of being an ambassador for Northeast athletics -- from Northeast Now, to the annual “Friends of the Tiger” golf tournament to the Booneville Christmas parade, Northeast cheerleaders were on the forefront of showing the community Northeast athletics.

NE welcomes five into Sports Hall of Fame Northeast inducted five new members into its Sports Hall of Fame on Saturday, October 8. Joining the hallowed halls of the Sports Hall of Fame were (left-right) former Lady Tiger basketball coach and current Northeast Dean of Students and Athletic Director Ricky Ford, former Tiger football player Jim Drewry, former Lady Tiger basketball player Sherry Slayton-Holland and former Tiger football player Johnny Buskirk along with Northeast president Dr. Johnny L. Allen, Ed.D. Former Tiger basketball player Vincent Del Negro was also inducted along with Ford, Drewry, Slayton-Holland and Buskirk but was unable to attend the induction ceremony.

Northeast Mississippi Community College will induct five new members into its Sports Hall of Fame on Saturday, October 8 as part of the Homecoming 2011 festivities on the Booneville campus. Northeast alumni Ricky Ford, Jim Drewry, Johnny Buskirk, Vincent Del Negro and Sherry Slayton Holland will all be enshrined into the Northeast Sports Hall of Fame during a luncheon held at the Claude Wright Room inside the Haney Union on Saturday, October 8. Drewry and Buskirk are both former football players for the Tigers while Ford, Del Negro and Slayton starred on the hardwood for the Tigers and Lady Tigers. Ford, who guided the Lady Tiger basketball program for 30 years, also serves as athletic director and dean of student services for the college. A reception will be held in the Black and Gold Room on the first floor of the Haney Union at 11 a.m. before the induction luncheon at noon in the Claude Wright Room. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by contacting the Northeast business office at 662-720-7251. Deadline to purchase tickets for the luncheon is September 23. Ford, Drewry, Buskirk, Del Negro and Slayton Holland join an illustrious cast of Sports Hall of Fame inductees. During the 2010 induction, former Tiger football and baseball player Mike Grier, former Tiger basketball player Jack Martin, former Lady Tiger basketball players Kunshinge Sorrell Howard and Phyllis Stafford Dilworth and former football and softball coach and athletic director David Carnell all became members of the Sports Hall of Fame. In its second year (2009), Northeast Sports Hall of Fame inducted five members to join the initial 10 inductees with former basketball players Gerald Caveness, Clyde Jones, Evelyn Thompson, and football player Larry Parker along with former Tiger basketball coach Harvey Childers all inducted during the second year. Northeast’s inaugural inductees of ten former coaches, players and supporters of Northeast Mississippi Community College athletics included Harold T. White, W.B. ‘Bill’ Ward, Ken Lindsey, Chuck ‘Doodle’ Floyd, Gene Garret, Adrian Smith, Kenneth ‘Cat’ Robbins, David ‘Nub’ Strickland, Earline ‘Woodsie’ Woods and Bonner Arnold. Jim Drewry (Tiger Football 1950-51) 46

Jim Drewry led Northeast to its first two winning seasons as the Tiger quarterback on the 1950 and 1951 seasons. In 1950, Drewry helped lead a Doug Hamley squad to a 6-2-2 mark and the Mississippi Conference Valley Championship with a 32-14 win over Sunflower Junior College. During his time as the Tiger quarterback, Drewry guided Northeast to a 11-6-3 overall record that included back-to-back wins over Northwest Mississippi Community College (31-0 in 1950 and 34-7 in 1951) and Northeast’s 47 points against UT-College in 1951 still ranks as the sixth highest point total in school history and as the fourth highest winning margin for Northeast in its 52-year football history. Following his time at Northeast, Drewry went on to play at Delta State University but it was his time on the sidelines at Kossuth, Booneville and Tishomingo high schools that Drewry made a name for himself. However, it was his time at Delta State that Drewry got his first taste of being a coach and helped guide the 1954 Statesmen football team to an undefeated record and a national championship as part of E.B. Chadwick’s coaching staff as a student assistant. Drewry began his coaching career at Kossuth in 1958 and spent two seasons as the Aggies head man before moving to Brandon as an assistant coach in 1960. Drewry returned home in 1965 and began his first stint as Booneville’s head coach leading the Blue Devils to three bowl games and a Tombigbee Conference co-championship in 1977 before leaving for his second stint at Kossuth from 1979-86. After retiring to sell insurance in 1987-88, Drewry returned to the sidelines at now defunct Tishomingo High School in 1989 before returning to the Blue Devils in 1990 and guiding Booneville until his retirement in spring 2010. During his second stint with Booneville, Drewry saw most of his success leading the Blue Devils to three state championships and four state runnerup finishes. Drewry carried his work ethic into his final year as Booneville head coach where in his 50th season as a head coach, the former Northeast signal caller directed his team to a 13-1 record (starting out 13-0) and appearance in the Class 3A state semifinals. In the spring 2010, Drewry finally hung up his coaching whistle at the

Tiger age of 79 and with over 50 years in the football. Drewry, who had retired one time before after the 1987 season, ended his coaching career as Mississippi’s all-time winningest football coach, passing Joe Bradshaw in the fall of 2009 with a 59-6 win over S.V. Marshall in the first round of the Class 3A state football playoffs. Drewry finished his career with a 346-157-5 record in head coaching stops at Booneville, Kossuth and Tishomingo where his teams made the state playoffs 17 times and brought home the Class 2A state championship trophy in 1990, 1999 and 2000. Drewry has been the recipient of many awards and honors and was named the 2009 Power of Influence Award recipient by the American Football Coaches Association. In addition to the 2009 Power of Influence Award, Drewry has also been inducted into the National Federation of State High School Associations Hall of Fame and the Mississippi Association of Coaches Hall of Fame. In 2000, he was inducted into the Delta State University Alumni Coaches Hall of Fame and was named the Tombigbee Coach of the Year in 1967, 1969, 1978 along with being the District 1 Coach of the Year in 1985. Drewry has also been honored as the Division 1-3A Coach of the Year in 1986, the Daily Corinthian Coach of the Year in 1993, 1997 and 1999 along with the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal Coach of the Year in 1999 and the Class 2A Coach of the Year in 1999 and 2000. In 2003, Drewry was named All-American Football Foundation’s Gerald R. Ford All-American High School Coach of the Year, and in 2005, he was the first Mississippi recipient of the NSSA-USA Football Champions Award. Drewry has also had the honor of having a street named after him in the city of Booneville. Currently, Drewry sits on an advisory board for the American Football Coaches Association and has been figured in a trio of books about football in the state of Mississippi — Gridiron Gold, Gridiron Glory (which featured the Northeast alumni on the cover) and Y’all vs. Us showcasing the rivalry between Booneville and Baldwyn. Johnny Buskirk (Tiger Football 1968-69) Johnny Buskirk’s career at Northeast started off a new era of Tiger football. Buskirk championed the Northeast football team during the first two seasons after coming off an 11-year hiatus from 1957-67 and led Northeast to an 11-7 record during that time. During his freshman year at Northeast, Buskirk was named the most outstanding player averaging nearly 270 yards per game running and passing and was nationally ranked for his offensive talents. Buskirk’s sophomore season saw the Tiger signal caller bring the most success to Northeast’s football program since Horace McCool coached the team to a 10-1 mark in 1956. Buskirk led Northeast to a 7-2 mark his sophomore year and more importantly was the Tiger Award recipient for that year and was named the most outstanding back in Mississippi inside the junior college ranks. Buskirk is one of only a handful of football players to end his Northeast career on a four-game win streak. During the 1969 season, Buskirk capped his sophomore season with wins over Northwest, Copiah-Lincoln, a close 20-18 decision over Itawamba and a season-ending win over Perkinston. Under Coach Bill Ward’s guidance, Buskirk was one of two National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) All-Americans produced by Northeast in 1969. Joining Buskirk on the All-American team was tight end Donnie Clayton. In 1969, Buskirk led the Northeast to a 7-2 mark and in both his freshman and sophomore years, the former Tiger signal caller led Northeast to high offensive outputs. In 1968, Northeast put up 48 points against Itawamba and then turned the trick again in 1969 with a 48-14 showing against East Central. The 48-point performance ranks fifth in school history for points scored and sits just one touchdown and extra point away from the top mark. Following his time at Northeast, Buskirk took his skills to Mississippi College where he was a quarterback, running back and kick returner. Buskirk’s talents helped him set a record at Mississippi College that holds to today – his six kickoff returns against Furman College in 1970 are still listed in the Mississippi College record book.

Football Following his time at Mississippi College, Buskirk entered the coaching ranks and was named the Tippamingo Conference Coach of the Year in 1974. Vincent Del Negro (Tiger Basketball 1958-59, 1959-60) Vincent Del Negro would have made Dominque Wilkins jealous as the “Human Highlight Reel” in the late 1950s. In his first six games as a freshman on Bonner Arnold’s Tiger basketball team, Del Negro broke out for 172 points – a 34.4 points per game average – and never looked back. During his freshman season in 1958-59, Del Negro helped lead the Tiger basketball team to the North Half Tournament and a 9-3 mark during North Division play before becoming an unanimous selection for the AllState Team. In his first six games with the Tigers, Del Negro dropped 32, 32, 32, 34, 39 and 42 points – the latter two coming in a 109-85 win over Memphis State and a 96-95 decision over East Mississippi in Scooba. During the 1959-60 season, Northeast made an improvement on its 12-12 record of Del Negro’s freshman campaign with a 15-12 mark that included wins over Freed-Hardeman and nationally ranked Vincennes (Ind.) 62-61. In the one-point win over Vincennes, Del Negro let fellow Tiger captain Bobby McCarley knock down the last shot – a 23-foot jumper – but the 6-5 center had the final say, when Del Negro pulled down the game-ending rebound to seal the victory. While scoring just 16 points against Freed-Hardeman in their first meeting, Del Negro made up for lost time with a 45-point effort against FreedHardeman in an 83-69 win and turned the trick once again with a 45-point night against East Mississippi in a 100-74 showing. Del Negro’s biggest night came in a 46-point effort against Sunflower. Del Negro was also popular with the student population as evident from him being voted Most Athletic on the Northeast campus during his sophomore year. McCarley and Del Negro were also selected to play in the national allstar game together in Coffeyville, Kansas at the culmination of his sophomore season. During his second season in Booneville, Del Negro led the nation with a 33.4 points per game average while racking up 1,022 points and was named a first-team All-American. Del Negro helped lead Northeast to the North Half championship his sophomore season as the Tigers finished as runner-ups in the state. Del Negro was an all-around athlete. During regular season play, the 6-5 center average 33.024 points per game, in North Half play 34 points per game and in the State Tournament 31.5 points per game. In his two seasons at Northeast, Del Negro average 32.6 points per game as a freshman and 33.4 points per game as a sophomore. Following his time in Booneville, Del Negro played for legendary coach Adolph Rupp at the University of Kentucky after signing a grant-in-aid scholarship with the program following his appearance in the national allstar game. Sherry Slayton Holland (Lady Tiger Basketball 1985-86, 1986-87) Sherry Slayton Holland made an immediate impact on the Northeast basketball scene when she joined Ricky Ford’s Lady Tigers during the 1985-86 and 1986-87 seasons. Alongside Phyllis Stafford for two years and Kunshinge Sorrell Howard her first year, Slayton helped guide the Lady Tigers to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) national tournament in both her years in Booneville. During her freshman season, Slayton and the Lady Tigers dropped only one game all season and posted a 31-0 record heading into the national championship game against Odessa, Texas in 1986. Slayton bested her freshman year one season later when the Lady Tigers went undefeated -- 34-0 -- en route to the 1987 national championship. During her two years at Northeast, Slayton amassed a 65-1 record on the hardwood and was named to the MACJC All-State and NJCAA Region XXIII teams both years at Northeast. Northeast swept through the regular season during Slayton’s sophomore year undefeated and knocked off Northwest Mississippi Community College

80-78 for the MACJC State Championship and then swept through the Region XXIII tournament before heading to Senatobia for the NJCAA National Women’s Basketball Tournament. Northeast made good on its return trip as the Lady Tigers won four straight games in the Division I women’s national tournament -- including the national championship game when Northeast upended St. Gregory’s in the national championship game 68-64. It was during the 1986-87 National Tournament that Slayton made a name for herself on the hardwood and was named the Most Valuable Player for the tournament. During her sophomore season, Slayton led the Lady Tigers in steals per game and assists per game with 3.8 and 6.6 per game, respectively. Northeast’s undefeated season also saw Slayton piece together a 14.2 points per game average. In her two years at Northeast, Northeast captured two North Division championships, two state championships, two Region XXIII championships, back-to-back Tyler, Texas Invitational Championships, a national runner-up finish and a national championship. Following her sophomore season, Slayton was named an NJCAA AllAmerican alongside Lady Tiger Phyllis Stafford. Following her time at Northeast, Slayton took her talents to the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) where she was joined by a pair of former Lady Tigers – Phyllis Stafford and Jackie Martin. Ricky Ford (Lady Tiger Basketball 1981-2011, Athletic Director 2006-Present) Former Northeast Mississippi Community College women’s basketball coach Ricky Ford left his “built Ford tough” mark on many Lady Tiger teams since coming to Northeast in 1981. On March 7, 2011 Ford announced he was stepping down as women’s basketball coach at Northeast. Ford ended his career at Northeast with an overall record of 588-226. During his 30-year coaching career, Ford only had four sub-.500 seasons and the first of those did not come until his 2002-03 Lady Tigers finished 11-12 but even it finished as the North Division runner-up. Within five years since taking over the Lady Tiger program in 1981, Ford had transformed the Lady Tigers into national title contenders that included

a national runner-up finish in 1986 and a national championship in 1987. During Ford’s illustrious career, the Lady Tiger basketball coach led his team to 15 North Division titles, nine MACJC State Championships with 6 (six) of those state championships being consecutive and three Region XXIII crowns while leading the Lady Tigers to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s (NJCAA) national basketball tournament on three separate occasions. Ford went to the national tournament a final time in 2005-06 as the Lady Tigers captured the North Division, MACJC State and Region XXIII titles and finished the season as the nation’s No. 21-ranked team after appearing in the national event in Salina, Kan. Following his final national tournament appearance, Ford was honored as the Division I, District O, Region XXIII Coach of the Year - an award that is given to the head coach of each of the 16 regional championship teams. One year after his national tournament appearance, Ford continued his success in the MACJC as the veteran mentor led the Lady tigers back to the Region XXIII tournament for a twenty-fifth straight year as the Lady Tigers once again captured the North Division - their fourth straight division title and successfully defended their 2006 MACJC State Title. While Ford may hung up his coaching whistle, the veteran coach still has plans to carry that same passion he showed on the basketball court into the academic life. Ford was appointed Dean of Student Services at the beginning of the 2011 spring semester following the retirement of Kenneth Pounders, and is currently in his sixth year as athletic director for the college. His responsibilities as athletic director has Ford overseeing the day-today operations of an athletic department that features eight varsity sports, an all-female cheerleading squad and also coordinates the annual MACJC AllStar Football Classic game that is held each year in December. Prior to coming to Northeast, Ford built successful basketball programs at Booneville High School coaching the Lady Blue Devils for four years and the Blue Devils for a pair of seasons. Ford’s overall career record stands at 676-253 and carries a winning percentage of 72.7 percent into retirement. Before putting on the coaching whistle, Ford also played basketball under Northeast Sports Hall of Fame coach/basketball player Kenneth Lindsey.

Football Tiger 2011 Year in Review

Northeast’s football team opened the 2011 year at home against East Central and set the stage for a memorable season with a 40-27 win over the Warriors. The Tigers would carry that momentum throughout the 2011 MACJC campaign.

In Week 5, Northeast’s defense put on a show in Senatobia as the Tigers stunned the Northwest Rangers 34-28 and came away with No. 12 ranking in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Top 20 poll following the win.

Northeast parlayed its 5-0 start into a playoff matchup against Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and pushed the South Division champion to overtime before falling 20-17. 52
