Oxford football coach Johnny Hill and his staff don’t have the luxury of wasting a lot of practice time getting the Chargers in shape. With a jamboree less than two weeks away, and the start of the 2011 season in 17 days, Hill is doing his best to make sure his team is ready when the ball is kicked off later this month.
The Chargers opened preparations for the season opener at Grenada on Monday with two practice sessions that focused on fundamentals, special teams and other various drills. Unlike last season when high school teams across the state had three weeks to prepare for the first jamboree, this year teams only have two full weeks and each practice session counts a little bit more.
