|Scott named to state team|
Copiah-Lincoln Community College wide receiver/return specialist De'Vante Scott of Ferriday has been named Mississippi Association of Community & Junior College (MACJC) Second Team All-State.
Scott is a freshman from Ferriday High.
"The game is faster and much more competitive," Scott said. "I worked hard over the summer to prepare for it."
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Scott led the Wolfpack in receiving with 19 catches for 386 yards (20.3 yard average) and 3 touchdowns.
As a return specialist, Scott was second in the state returning 6 kickoffs for 182 yards (30.3 yard average). He returned 16 punts for 119 yards (7.4 yard average).
"We are very glad to have him," said Co-Lin head coach Glenn Davis. "He should be one of the best play makers coming back next season."
Scott, who originally committed to Mississippi State, rushed for 1,434 yards last year as a senior at Ferriday, and had 24 catches for 341 yards and 721 return yards.
"I still plan on attending Mississippi State," Scott said. "Louisiana Tech contacted me and expressed some interest. I plan on working to get faster and stronger and come back and have an even better year next year."
Scott also had 75 tackles on defense, four sacks and an interception his senior year at Ferriday.
"De'Vante is a quiet guy," Case said. "He has good work ethic. He is great after the catch, breaks a lot of tackles."
In Co-Lin's 7-6 win over East Central in Decatur, Scott returned a kickoff 55 yards to the East Central 30. But on the second play from scrimmage, a fumble ended the drive.
Joining Scott on the Second Team All-State are defensive back Tevin Thomas of Meadville and defensive lineman Jerry McNair of Magee.
Named to the MACJC All-State First Team were sophomore defensive back Dehendret Collins of Meadville, sophomore offensive lineman Josh Young of Starkville, and freshman defensive lineman Terrell Hartsfield of Wake Forest, N.C.
The Wolfpack finished the 2011 campaign with a 5-4 overall record, 2-4 in the South Division.
