Rebel Roundup - 7/13/10 - Tuesday the 13th!

Moncrief, With Help From Sis, Mulling Options | Clarion Ledger
Rod Walker, the high school football beat writer for the Clarion Ledger (and a good one, at that), talks about how Donte Moncrief, one of the state's most highly sought-after wide receiver prospects, is taking plenty of recruiting advice from his college-aged sister.

Rising sophomore second baseman Alex Yarborough. That's because

Yarbrough started in all seven games for the Thomasville Hi-Toms last week, hitting .464 with 13 hits, four RBI and four runs scored.

Per Brandt, this calls into question Terrico's "aggressiveness" which, as we all know, was something he rarely showed for most of his Rebel career.
