Lafayette linebacker Quin Jones may just be a sophomore, but he has a knack for making tackles like a senior does. LHS coach Eric Robertson saw Jones make 16 stops this past Friday night in the Commodores’ 30-7 win over Senatobia on the road. (October 29, 2013, Page 6)
Piling up 363 total yards and getting a monster game from sophomore running back Kenzie Phillips (208 yards and three touchdowns), Oxford’s offense continued doing what it’s been doing all year in the Chargers’ 30-0 win over rival Lafayette in the annual Crosstown Classic Friday night.
With Phillips and senior Jarius Barnes making up a formidable rushing attack, a rising sophomore at quarterback in Jack Abraham and one of the best receivers around in Ole Miss commit D.K. Metcalf, the Chargers’ offense has put up at least 30 points in every game it’s played so far.
But just in case anybody forgot about the Oxford defense, the unit proved it’s alive and well with its most dominant performance to this point against the Commodores. (September 16, 2013, Page 4B)
A 15-0 run to start the game and much better passing as a team led the Oxford Chargers to a 61-46 win over Charleston in the OHS gym Tuesday night.
Oxford coach Drew Tyler liked the way his team played more unselfishly in the win. Justin Hill, who led the Chargers with 11 points, was one of the players Tyler singled out for his leadership and effort. He also thought David Dennis played his best game of the season. Dennis finished with eight points and was one of 11 players to score in the contest that Oxford led 23-10 at the end of the first quarter and 37-24 at the half. (December 5, 2012, Page 6)
During Friday’s 28-13 win at Lewisburg, LHS quarterback Brandon Mack did what has become expected of the super senior, rushing for 126 yards, passing for 115 and accounting for three touchdowns, all the while playing full-time on defense and special teams. (October 2, 2012, Page 7)
That was Oxford coach Johnny Hill’s thoughts after his team defeated Region 1-5A rival New Hope 29-17 at Bobby Holcomb Field on Friday night.
Plagued by missed assignments and poor execution most of the night, the Chargers (6-0 overall, 2-0 in region play) put some distance between themselves and the Trojans thanks to big plays on defense late in the game. (more…) (October 1, 2012, Page 3B)

Lafayette’s eighth-grade football team remained perfect on the season Tuesday night with its second win over Oxford, while the seventh-grade Chargers used early miscues by the Commodores to help post a 22-8 win at William L. Buford Stadium.
