Oxford hosts Grenada in season opener

Speed is something the Oxford Chargers are going to have to deal with when they host Grenada Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field.

While first games are always the hardest for coaches to scout for, the one thing that has been consistent in preparing for Grenada is the amount of speed it has at the skill positions.

Leading the way from a skill standpoint is Cedric Tillman, who was second in Class 6A in the 100 meter dash this past spring. The 5-foot-11, 187-pound senior leads a talented backfield for coach Lamar Pitcock, who turned was able to improve Grenada from a 1-10 team in 2008 to a 5-6 team last year. (August 19, 2010, Page 6)
