We all have dreams that we must release into the universe. There are times when people who don't wish us well try to block those dreams. But, as long as you know the power that's within you, no one can block any blessing or dream that God has for you. Just remember Glenda, the good witch or spirit, who told Dorothy that she's always had the power. It comes from within... it lives in your heart. As long as you know that you have nothing to fear, you'll live an abundant life!
The ability to manifest great things in your life comes from being grateful for what you have... and serving others in some way. It can be as small as helping someone see great potential within themselves that they may not have seen before. It could also mean using your life to inspire someone to step out on faith. We all have a purpose that's divinely connected to each other.
When you travel just remember the stranger that you meet may be someone who was sent to help you discover more about yourself. My intuition always guides me to the truth, so I've learned to trust it. On the occassion that I meet somenone who connects me to my purpose, I know that the universe is at work guiding me to something bigger than myself. Power comes when you can connect the dots.

"Southern Sports and Travel has been an invaluable source of information for fans of the MAIS, providing not only statistics, but great articles about the different teams. Coaches and fans alike are rewarded from its reading and I personally enjoy and appreciate the coverage of the MAIS. Thank you Southern Sports & Travel."
Leake Academy Athletic Director & Girls Head Basketball Coach Doyle Wolverton
"Southern Sports & Travel has given a perfect venue to promote MAIS sports and acknowledge the accomplishments of our student athletes. All MAIS patrons and schools should do whatever is in their power to help this website flourish because the kids deserve it."
“Darron is a great ambassador for the MAIS and its member schools. He is professional in his work and writes detailed, positive articles that reflect well on our association.”
Jackson Prep Head Basketball Coach David Horner
"Southern Sports & Travel does a great job covering MAIS sports through his site Southern Sports and Travel. Our players know it is a big game and are excited when he comes to cover our games! Without Southern Sports and Travel our schools and students would get very little recognition."
Simpson Academy Head Football Coach Billy Wayne Hankins
"Southern Sports and Travel has been an excellent source of up to date information for me. It's the first place I look after a ballgame to find scores all across the state. Thanks Darron for all your hard work!"
Parklane Academy Head Baseball Coach Michael Clements
"Southern Sports & Travel provides information about our association that cannot be found anywhere else. From game recaps to district standings, it's all available here. Darron's work allows schools such as ours to gain exposure that local media outlets do not provide."
East Rankin Head Basketball Coach Michael McAnally
"I can't tell you how much I appreciate Darron Thomas and his work with Southern Sports and Travel. The website is great for exposure for MAIS athletes and schools. Darron's knowledge of the MAIS makes it not only informative but extremely credible. Our kids are always excited for Southern Sports and Travel to visit Rees Gym."

"Southern Sports & Travel is the best sports website for MAIS sports. It is a great unbiased, factual sports sight. It is a great tool for coaches to keep up with box scores and district standings. I frequent the site often during the season."
Hillcrest Christian Boys Head Basketball Coach Wes Prather
"This site is a blessing to every Coach and to the MAIS. It gives accurate information about the sports experiences of our student/athletes in every classification. Southern Sports & Travel’s commitment to our kids and to our academies is unbelievable and their knowledge of our sports is excellent. As a basketball coach, I find their articles to be better than most scouting reports I can obtain from other coaches. I pray everyone will support this site by purchasing a sponsorship."
Simpson Academy Girls Head Basketball Coach David Granville
"Southern Sports and Travel has become the "must view" website for our entire school, along with the entire association. Players, parents, staff, and alumni turn to SST on a daily basis to get all the latest news and events."
Columbia Head Basketball Coach Reid McCay
"We advertise on Southern Sports & Travel because we are building a basketball program, and it is absolutely the best way to stay on top of MAIS scores and trends. Supporting a resource as valuable as this makes perfect sense. The MAIS must agree since they have made it the official location for playoff scores after each game. Our schools are so far apart, we need this service to bridge the gap."

"Southern Sports & Travel is my #1 source of sports information in MAIS.

The first thing all of our staff does is head to the computer to pull up Southern Sports & Travel."
River Oaks Assistant Football Coach Dalton LeBleu
"I visit Southern Sports & Travel because it is so efficient and easy to keep up with all of MAIS sports. The Clarion Ledger never covers the Louisiana schools so I rely strictly on Southern Sports & Travel. It has been a great help to myself and my entire coaching staff."
Silliman Girls Track Coach Sharon Kline
"Darron Thomas and Southern Sports and Travel have meant so much to the Centreville Academy Tiger Baseball team and fans in our quest for back to back state championships.

"Coach Hurst has had surgery in Houston and is doing well as of Tuesday evening."
"Coach Hurst will be the fighter through this surgery just as he has many times on the football field leading his team to victory. He is strong, steadfast, and a man of God. I would expect to see him return to his duties way too soon and even stronger than ever. You can't keep a good man down! Take care and our many prayers will be with you. Using the words that you have told to us time after time"........"GOD BLESS YOU."
