ECCC announces 2021 football schedule
The 2021 football season is just 12 weeks away and the East Central Warriors have announced their nine-game 2021schedule.
The East Central Warriors, who had to cut the 2020 season short due to COVID-19, finished the year 2-3 overall and closed out the year with a 13-10 overtime victory over Co-Lin in Wesson.
The 2021 season will kick off with a road trip to Scooba to face East Mississippi on Sept. 2. The matchup will be the first between the two programs since 2019 when the Warriors fell 24-0 in Scooba.
East Mississippi opted out of the 2020 season, meaning the meeting will be the first game for the Lions since a 31-7 loss to Mississippi Gulf Coast on Nov. 2, 2019. ECCC is 1-4 against the Lions in the last five meetings with the last win coming in the 2007 season opener.
All East Central home games are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. kickoff times at Bailey Stadium located in Decatur.
