Hattiesburg Football Standout:
D’Andre Humbles was a key player on a Hattiesburg High School football team that captured the city’s attention this fall by posting the school’s first unbeaten regular season in nearly two decades.
For the first time since 1998, the Tigers (14-1) also won the Class 5A South State title and played in the state championship game, where they lost on Dec. 2 to defending state champion West Point High School 41-15.
That week, D’Andre caught four passes for 109 yards (21.8 yards per catch) against the Green Wave. A week earlier, he had two catches for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Tigers’ 33-22 South State victory over Laurel High School.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Humbles led Hattiesburg in receiving with 1,045 yards and 12 touchdowns. His 24.3-yard-per-reception average was the highest of any HHS player with at least four catches and his 43 receptions ranked second on the team.
D’Andre also netted 51 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 14 carries, and served as the team’s backup quarterback, completing 13-of-27 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.
A three-year letterman, D’Andre caught 47 passes for 832 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior in 2016. He also completed 6-of-10 passes for 132 yards and a touchdown with an interception.
Anyone with any information regarding the shooting is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 601-582-STOP.
