Pascagoula's Caston gets D-1 offer, Hoye set to walk-on

Pascagoula football coach Lewis Sims took the time Monday afternoon to give an update on the latest with his football team, and here are some quick notes from our conversation.

* Senior defensive end Caleb Caston received his first Division I scholarship offer recently through Arkansas State.

The offer should the first of several more to come for Caston, who checks in at 6-foot-2, 219 pounds.

Caston registered 61 tackles and nine sacks in 2012, helping lead the Panthers to the Class 5A South State title.

* Sims said that defensive back/receiver Breland Hoye is expected to walk-on at Pearl River Community College for the 2013 season.

Hoye was asked to do a lot of different things in his senior season, playing running back, receiver and defensive back. He also played close to the line of scrimmage at times on defense.

* Sims said that he's had good participation from his players in summer workouts, averaging 50-55 participants.
