« Back
February 17, 2005 - TUPELO, MS--Two former Mississippi State Bulldogs have signed with the FireAnts for the 2005 season. Joining the ’Ants on the offensive line is Tupelo, MS native Donald Tucker and wide receiver/defensive back Michael Gholar from Prentiss, MS.

Tucker, a 6-foot-5, 298-pounder joined Mississippi State after a successful high school career at Tupelo High. Redshirting his first year with the Bulldogs in 1999, Tucker earned a starting role on the offensive line in 2001. In all, Tucker played a total of 27 games at State through the 2002 season.

“Donald Tucker is a solid football player,” FireAnts Head Coach John Fourcade said. “He will be an asset on our offensive line, and with a little determination and hard work, has the opportunity to elevate himself to the next level.”

Also joining the ‘Ants is former Mississippi State basketball/football player Michael Gholar. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Gholar was a four-year basketball letterman with the Dogs before turning his attention toward football in 2002 where he made a huge impact racking up 66 total tackles, three sacks and one interception in 11 games played.

“Michael Gholar is an outstanding all-around athlete,” Fourcade continues. “He is a phenomenal person that has the talent to make some big contributions to this team and really go places.”

The Tupelo FireAnts will open the 2005 season on Saturday, March 19th at the BancorpSouth Center in Tupelo, MS as the Lexington Horsemen come to town. Kickoff is set for 7:30pm. Season tickets are currently on sale through the FireAnts Office by calling (662) 620-BITE.

In other news, the FireAnts will conduct their next open tryout at Jackson Academy this Saturday, February 19th. Head Coach John Fourcade is still looking for prospective players to fill the roster for the 2005 season. Interested participants must be ages 18 or older. Cost is $50 and includes a T-shirt and two tickets to the home opener. Registration begins at 10am at the Jackson Academy football field, located at 4908 Ridgewood Road.
