Miller remains committed to Rebels

Following Lafayette’s 28-6 victory over the Itawamba-AHS Indians I got a chance to catch up with Ole Miss commit Maikhail Miller.

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound quarterback had physically just gone through hell but took the time to talk about the game and where he stands with Ole Miss. (more…) (September 13, 2010)

    Ivy paces Chargers win over Senatobia

    A sluggish start on offense for the Oxford Chargers on Friday night was rectified by the speed of wide receiver Stan Ivy. Just a day after watching his son, Stantavias Ivy Jr., come into the world, Ivy played a big part in the Chargers’ 35-7 win over Senatobia.

    Ivy scored three straight touchdowns in the game for Oxford, including two in an 11.8 second time span, that increased a 7-0 lead to 21-0 heading into halftime for the Chargers (3-1 overall). (September 13, 2010, Page 4B)

      Chargers turn their sights to Senatobia

      A final opportunity to work out some kinks and start to fine tune things against another solid opponent heading into region play is what Oxford faces this Friday night at Senatobia.

      The Warriors (2-1 overall) are always a well-coached team and in the past have given the Chargers a lot to prepare for.

      This year is no different said OHS coach Johnny Hill, who enjoys squaring off against SHS coach Phil Oakley. Oakley scolded his team after falling to Winona 45-21 in the opener and the motivational talk has resulted in a win over Corinth as well as a win last week over Tate County rival Independence. (September 9, 2010, Page 7)

          Oxford Middle School falls to South Panola

          Oxford’s two middle school football teams lost two close game to South Panola Tuesday. The seventh-grade lost 12-8 after leading a sizable portion of the game, while the eighth-grade fell 8-0 in the nightcap.

          South Panola scored the game-winning touchdown with two minutes remaining in the contest. The Tigers first TD of the game was scored with a minute left in the first quarter. Oxford’s first offensive drive of the game was thwarted, while the Tigers’ second drive ended courtesy of an interception by Kylin Jones. (September 8, 2010, Page 9)

            Lafayette’s Tyson earns POW award

            Other players may have had more yards and tackles, but no player made a bigger play over the weekend than Lafayette defensive end Keeyon Tyson.

            With the Oxford Chargers marching down the field late in the fourth quarter, Tyson broke around the Oxford offensive line and was able to punch the ball away from Chargers quarterback Guy Cameron Billups.

            Fellow Commodore Kris Miller fell on the ball and Lafayette’s 21-14 victory was secured. (September 7, 2010, Page 6)

              Letting go of the rope, making the (NFL) cut

              Following Saturday’s debacle several of Ole Miss’ players attempted to explain the Rebels’ second-half collapse.

              Running back Brandon Bolden may have said it best when he said, “Sometimes you just let go of the rope.”

              At the half, the Rebels held a commanding 31-10 lead. Not only was the Ole Miss offense scoring almost at will, but the Rebel defense was thwarting its Football Championship Subdivision opponent’s best efforts to march down the field.

              Then, for whatever reason, the Rebels let go of the rope as Bolden simply put it. (more…) (September 6, 2010)

                ‘Dores outlast Chargers in Crosstown Classic

                The annual matchup between Lafayette and Oxford is called the Crosstown Classic for a reason and the latest installment in the series played Friday night at Oxford’s Bobby Holcomb Field definitely lived up to the moniker.

                In a game that is usually decided by just one play, it was Lafayette junior defensive end Keeyon Tyson that produced the single-biggest play in a 21-14 win for the No. 1 Commodores. Just a little over a minute after the Commodores (3-0 overall) scored the game-winning touchdown on a 12-yard run by Demarkus Dennis at the 2:13 mark of the fourth quarter, Tyson was able to thwart a potential game-tying scoring drive for the Chargers (2-1) by slapping the ball away from quarterback Guy Cameron Billups at the LHS 13-yard line. (September 6, 2010, Page 1B)
