Cougar Greats Give Back



Class of 2022 graduates and gridiron stand-outs Cephas Pettis and Tyler Banks returned to their old “stomping grounds” at Nottoway High School on Monday, May 15th to help Cougar football players with offseason work-outs.

Cephas plays defensive line for JMU, and Banks plays linebacker for Ole Miss. Both are due to return to their respective schools later this month to begin their own off-season conditioning. Both are Honors students — Cephas in Information Technology (IT) and Tyler in Mechanical Engineering (with straight A’s).
