              Jim Smith — er, Martin — will be missed


              Those he grew up with in Lafayette County, those he went to school and church with, knew him as Jim Smith. Those who heard him on the radio, on the P.A. at Ole Miss and as the voice of Lafayette High School football for years, knew him as Jim Martin.

              To those privileged to know him in all of his roles, he was just “Jim.”

              James Martin Smith, 55, passed away last Friday at his home. And with his passing, those who knew him best and those of us who knew him pretty well through his nearly four decades in the radio business, another void was created.

                Chargers fall in quarterfinals this morning

                JACKSON — Oxford’s run in the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs came to an end this morning with a 57-56 quarterfinal loss to Wayne County at the Lee E. Williams Athletics and Assembly Center on the campus of Jackson State University.

                Cortez Jones led all scorers with 24 points for the Chargers, who had their 10-game winning streak snapped. Josh Gibbs added 12. Devin Paicley-Smith led Wayne County with 19 points.

                Oxford (26-5) led by as many as nine in the second half, but the War Eagles went on an 11-2 run to tie it at 52 midway through the fourth quarter and scored five of the final nine points. Shelby McEwen’s half-court heave at the buzzer drew air.

                For a complete story from Sports Editor Davis Potter, see Friday’s Oxford EAGLE.
