Oxford EAGLE

Everything is coming together for OHS

Over a week into summer camp, Oxford head coach Johnny Hill would like to have had a few practices in pads, but the torrential Mississippi heat has been a tough customer to work with.

Originally scheduled to move out of shirt and shorts on Monday, the heat index in Oxford reached over 118 degrees. Tuesday brought more of the same with predicted temperatures today again in the triple digits. (August 4, 2010, Page 8)
