A Better Mid-South: Memphis football champions

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

It's a great day in the Mid-South when you can celebrate victories for Mid-South School football teams.

Whitehaven, East, Trezevant, and Lausanne all have brought home gold footballs from state championship games.

Let's all get behind these schools and show them the love.

But this means even more than just bragging rights -- for so many of these students it means a future and a way to pay for a college or vocational school.

So many athletes are able to get scholarships and that means an even better playing field for many of these young people as they become contributing members of our communities.

A shout-out to the coaches too who are working so hard with these young people to help them succeed on the field and off.
