    In a meeting of the 2A (Bassfield) and 4A (Forrest Co. AHS) high school football state champions from a year ago, it was the smaller of the two schools that came out with something to prove Friday night. The Yellowjackets used their bulldozer of a running back T-Rod Daniels early and often, as the senior scampered for two bruising touchdowns in the first half. Bassfield entered halftime leading 12-0, and ultimately won by a score of 24-7.
