Northwest Mississippi Community College

NEW JERSEY – Defensive tackle Tarow Barney, who played the 2012-13 seasons for Northwest Mississippi Community College and later at Penn State, has made it through the first week of organized team activities (OTAs) with the New York Jets.

Barney signed as an undrafted free agent with the Jets back on May 2 and is one of three former Rangers with NFL teams along with wide receiver Myles White (New York Giants) and offensive tackle Donald Hawkins (Carolina Panthers). Barney is wearing No. 60 during camp.

Jets OTAs continue May 31, June 1-2 and June 6-9. Mandatory minicamp is set for June 14-16.

"I'm very excited for the opportunity the Jets are giving me and blessed that I was given a chance," Barney said. "I'm going to make the best of my opportunity and work hard every day. I had a great experience on and off the field at Penn State and they molded me into a better player, especially my defensive line coach Sean Spencer."

A native of Bainbridge, Ga., and Bainbridge High School, Barney (6-3/305) was rated a 4-star prospect by 247sports.com and the No. 3 DT in the 2014 class out of Northwest. He finished the 2013 season with 36 tackles, 9.5 tackles-for-loss, 3.5 sacks, a forced fumble and five quarterback hurries and had 20 tackles and four hurries as a freshman in 2012.

He continued his career at Penn State, choosing the Nittany Lions over offers from Kansas State, Arizona State, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa State and numerous others. He also received heavy interest from Alabama.

In 25 career games at PSU, Barney finished with 16 tackles, 3.5 tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks.

One of the strongest players on the team, Barney did 31 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press at Penn State's pro day. He also ran a 4.99 40-yard dash and had a broad jump of 9 feet 5 inches.

Northeast Mississippi Community College

Booneville, Miss. - One of the hardest working student-athletes on the Northeast Mississippi Community College softball team is being rewarded with the opportunity to continue her career.

Bailey Bogue has signed a grant-in-aid scholarship to become the newest member of Blue Mountain College’s expanding program.

“I think she’ll have a great opportunity to contribute over there,” said Tigers head coach Jody Long. “She has done an outstanding job for us here. She’s one of those people that is a true testament of a team player.

“Anything over two years that we threw at her, she had the same mentality and did it. She’s going to go the extra mile and do the things it takes to be successful. That’s going to continue throughout her life.”

The Toppers exceeded the 20-win plateau for the fourth time in its six seasons of competition during the 2016 campaign. Blue Mountain also qualified for the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) Tournament last year under the direction of headman Tyler Herring.

“It’s very exciting,” Bogue said. “Softball has been a very big part of my life and a part of my family. This sport means a lot to us and I’m very excited to keep playing it. The school is great and I love everything about it.”

Bogue was one of the most versatile players for the Tigers. She clocked time as a courtesy runner, catcher, left fielder and right fielder during her sophomore campaign alone.

The Etta native had several solid performances during her final year in the City of Hospitality. Bogue had a RBI double off the bench against Coahoma Community College and scored a season-high two runs in a victory over Mississippi Delta Community College.

She was stellar in the field for Northeast with only one error during the entire campaign. Bogue recorded a career-best eight putouts from behind the plate during the first of two games at Holmes Community College.

Bogue helped the Tigers reach the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) state playoffs for the 14th time in 16 years at the fast-pitch level as a freshman.

She earned the starting nod as the designated player during the opening contest at East Central Community College and then appeared as a courtesy runner in the finale of the best-of-three series.

Bogue collected her inaugural hit at Northeast during a win over Dyersburg State (Tenn.) Community College on March 17, 2015. She had two hits, five runs and a RBI one day later in a sweep of Coahoma.

She had her only multiple hit outing on April 8, 2015 versus East Mississippi Community College. Bogue appeared in 50 total games with 21 runs scored and a .971 fielding percentage.

“My teammates both years have just been great,” said Bogue. “We all got along pretty well. We left as a family. I couldn’t ask for anything better from them. I’m going to miss it here.”

The West Union High School graduate maintained a commitment to excellence in the classroom as well. She concluded her tenure on the Booneville campus with a phenomenal 3.8 grade point average (GPA).

Bogue was selected as an All-America Scholar Athlete by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) following her initial season with the Tigers. She was part of a team that ranked in the top 10 nationally with a 3.39 GPA overall.

Hinds Community College

RAYMOND – Matthew Gibson (Clinton), a sophomore sprinter on the Hinds Community College men’s track and field team, inked a national letter of intent with Mississippi College on Friday to continue his academic and athletic career.

Gibson competed in a variety of events for the Eagles (100 and 200-meter dashes), who recently came in third place overall at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Outdoor Nationals.

He had a very successful sophomore campaign, highlighted by a third place finish in the 200-meter dash at the Louisiana State University (LSU) Purple Tiger Invitational, where he ran the event in 22.48 seconds. Gibson also had a third place finish later in the season in Baton Rouge, La., when he ran the same event in 22.70 seconds at the Louisiana State University (LSU) High Performance meet.

Gibson also notched numerous top-10 finishes in the 100 and 200-meter dashes during the 2016 season.
