Messengers Sports Briefs for May 26

McGrew OC receiver
of touchdown pass

Mason McGrew was on the receiving end of one touchdown pass from Trey Phipps and had another such feat negated by penalty in Saturday’s Obion Central football scrimmage against Lake County.
Tanner Cary was originally credited with the TD catches in Monday’s story on the scrimmage and the end of the Rebels’ spring drills.
Most OC players did not wear numbers in the session, that and incorrect information obtained by another Central player led to the wrong identification.
McGrew’s scoring reception covered 25 yards.
