Heath Hutchins and Pernell McPhee of Itawamba Community College, both of whom are Mississippi State commitments, were named first-team all-Region 23 performers on Monday.

Heath Hutchins, a sophomore from Saltillo who last week committed to Mississippi State, leads the nation in punting with a 46.1 average, while Pernell McPhee, a sophomore defensive end from Pahokee, Fla., led the MACJC in sacks for the second straight season with 13.5 this fall in eight games after recording 19.5 a year ago.

"Both Heath and Pernell were extremely deserving of this honor," said ICC head coach Jeff Terrill, who pointed out that McPhee also had 23.5 tackles for a loss, despite getting double-teamed almost the entire season. "I'm hoping we’ll see both of these guy’s names on an all-American team in the near future."

Joining Hutchins and McPhee, who also made first-team all-Region 23 a year ago, on the MACJC North All-State first-team was freshman offensive lineman Lamar Holmes of Gastonia, N.C., and freshman defensive back Bernard Brinson of Madison, Fla. McPhee was also named for the second straight season the MVP on the defensive line.

Brinson, who was a Florida State signee, also made the second team as a return specialist. ICC freshman offensive lineman Jeff Howie of Chester, Pa. made the second team on offense while sophomore defensive lineman Kelvin Jackson of Hermanville made the same list on defense.
