Dear MDCC Supporters,

MDCC responds to Netflix documentary

  • Monday, 01 August 2016 21:36

In light of the recently released Netflix documentary series, “Last Chance U,” Mississippi Delta Community College takes issue with the portrayal of the in-game altercation that occurred during the Oct. 22, 2015 East Mississippi Community College football game.

Mississippi Delta has openly cooperated with the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) and National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). MDCC accepts responsibility for its actions in the altercation and is abiding by the punishment assigned. Our administration, the MACJC and the NJCAA investigated and took corrective measures in this matter last fall.

The NJCAA issued a two-game suspension for players and coaches of both teams. Mississippi Delta is enforcing its punishment during its first two 2016 season games. In addition, MDCC held its players accountable for their actions.

At no time did our coaching staff encourage our student-athletes to initiate an altercation of any type.

While the game of football is an important part of the spirit of MDCC, no athletic program or event supersedes the mission of the college, which is to provide a “quality education through academic, career, technical, health sciences and workforce training programs.”

Providing a safe and diverse learning atmosphere is and will continue to be the college’s main priority.

Our coaches and administration regret the situation, and have worked hard to ensure unfortunate events such as this do not happen again. We hope others in the league will do the same.
