When upon life’s billows, you are tempest and tossed; when you are discouraged thinking all is lost. Count your many blessings; name them one by one…and it will surprise what the Lord has done!
Good morning, good afternoon or good evening! Whichever time of day you find your ears listening to the sound that is flowing from your speakers! This is CeeJay, C-E-E-J-A-Y! Welcome back to CeeJay’s Spiritual Sports Segment HBCU Edition for the 2017 –’18 Football Season as I Sprinkle a Little Spiritually in your Sports! It’s your uncle, your next door neighbor looking out for ya and your shoulder, when you need to lean! Without further delay, Let’s Chop It Up!!
The SWAC was running and gunning with several games yesterday and unlike the MEAC, they have one more week to play, but I digress as Alabama A&M cruised past Kentucky State 21 – 13 with two scores from quarterback Dylan Smith, Alabama State got past Mississippi Valley State 16 – 10 as Hunter Hanson booted not one, not two, but three…wait for it…field goals! In the Battle of the Sip, Jackson State UPSET the SWAC East Division Champion Alcorn State in a blow out game 7 – 3, as Terrell Kennedy caught what ended up being the game winning TD and finally, Texas Southern befuddled Arkansas-Pine Bluff 24 – 10 with Brad Woodard running amuck for 128 yards and score.
The conference standings in the SWAC still have Grambling ruling the land overall and in the West at 7-0 and Southern at 5-1 and in the East, Alcorn State has a record of 6-2 and Alabama A&M at 3-3. As mentioned earlier, Alcorn State will be in the SWAC Championship game in December and they will play either Grambling or Southern, which they are due face off against one another next weekend.
This sports segment is dedicated to the people of Sutherland, TX and my God provide you with peace, comfort and strength today and the days ahead.
