Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists and Encore Rehabilitation – the offical orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Partners for the MGCCC Bulldogs – are proud to congratulate Coach Jack Wright and the Mississippi Gulf Coast team on their fifth National Football Championship.
Mississippi Gulf Coast won its fifth national football championship on Thursday, December 5th, besting a rugged No. 2 Lackawanna team in a 24-13 thriller at Carnie Smith Stadium. The Bulldogs close out a perfect 2019 season with their 12th win, this one coming in the NJCAA Football Championship. Gulf Coast previously won national titles in 1948, 1971, 1984 and 2007.
Jack Wright became the second coach in NJCAA history to win a national championship at two different schools. He won with Northwest Mississippi in 2015.
