Mag­no­lia Heights coach Cliff Young said sev­eral sopho­mores have been asked to fill roles on the team this sea­son and are com­ing along.

“We have three sopho­mores start­ing on the of­fen­sive line and one at wide re­ceiver,” Young said “At one point and time, we have five sopho­mores on of­fense, Each week they are get­ting bet­ter and more ex­pe­ri­enced. We feel like we’re get­ting bet­ter any­way.”

It has been an up and down sea­son so far for the Chiefs.

In the first week, Mag­no­lia Heights was shut out by Madi­son-Ridge­land Academy 49-0, but won the next two games over Lee Academy 33-8 and Stray­horn 6-0. 7 p.m., WLZA-FM 96.1
