        Moving Forrester has paid off for Chargers

        One of the most successful decisions Oxford football coach Johnny Hill and his staff made this year actually occurred just before the first spring practice session. It was just before the Chargers took the field last May that the coaches decide to move junior Joel Forrester from offensive tackle to defensive end exclusively. Instead of him attempting to play both ways like Terry Johnson and others did last year and maybe only giving a half effort at each spot, the decision to make Forrester a defensive player only has ultimately shaped the OHS defense into a formidable force up front.

            Chargers blank New Albany

            Early scoring and consistency putting points on the scoreboard throughout the contest allowed the seventh-grade Oxford Chargers to post a 40-0 win over New Albany on Tuesday night at Bobby Holcomb Field.

            Head coach Mike Hardwick saw almost his entire roster see action, which includes approximately 70 players. Hardwick also got to see his defense perform at a high level after wanting the unit to pick things up. (September 14, 2011, Page 7)

              JV contest about more than the score

              Monday night’s junior varsity football game between the Oxford Chargers and Lafayette Commodores at Bobby Holcomb Field may have ended with a 6-0 win for OHS, but in the end both teams benefited from the contest. (more…) (September 13, 2011, Page 7)

                Liggins’ big-play day earns him P.O.W honors

                The biggest game of Lafayette’s non-region schedule proved to be the perfect time for senior quarterback Jeremy Liggins to show his superior running skills. In a game where every Commodore stepped up and did their part to earn a win over Evangel Christian Academy (Shreveport, La.), it was Liggins who saved his best performance of the 2011 campaign at just the right time.

                Liggins was virtually unstoppable running the ball in the contest as he piled up 126 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. He also threw the ball well and finished with 80 yards and a touchdown. It was his clutch performance in arguably the program’s biggest regular season contest that made Liggins this week’s Player of the Week. (more…) (September 13, 2011, Page 7)

                  Dean whacks Warriors in Oxford’s lopsided victory

                  Mont Dean’s approach on the field could be likened to that of a skilled assassin.

                  The senior running back is typically silent, but once he takes the handoff from his quarterback, he’s deadly to opposing defenses. (more…) (September 12, 2011, Page 1B)
