PEARL, Miss. (WJTV) – The last time we saw the Pearl High School football team, the Pirates were celebrating the program’s first state championship victory in Oxford.

However, this year’s Pirates team will look a lot different than the group that won the 6A title in December.

He’s making his players earn back everything.
