In this edition of Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Today Editor-at-Large Marshall Ramsey sits down with author Nash Nunnery about his new book, “Magnolia Gridiron Cathedrals“. Ramsey contributed 47 paintings of the featured high school stadiums in the new book.

Nunnery, a longtime freehand sports writer, traveled all around Mississippi and tells stories about the soul of many small Mississippi communities — their high school stadiums. From Laurel’s brick stadium to the super fan whose ashes were spread beneath one field’s artificial turf, Nunnery bring Mississippi’s gridiron cathedrals to life.
