OHS freshmen down ‘Dores in crosstown game

It didn’t count, but it was still Oxford against Lafayette. An exhibition game between the school’s upcoming freshman football teams was held Monday night at Bobby Holcomb to cap spring drills for both squads as part of a three-team scrimmage with Saltillo. Both teams whet their respective appetites with victories over the Tigers before squaring off in the main event of the night. Oxford won 14-8 in a game that consisted of two halves of unspecified time rather than the regular four-quarter format. (May 5, 2015, Page 6)

OHS’s latest powerlifiting title ‘a special thing’

Oxford’s lifters and coach had a good idea even before the final count was tallied. Six lifters helped the Chargers pile up 28 points in the morning session of Saturday’s MHSAA Class 5A powerlifting meet in Jackson. With four more lifters still to take their turn in the afternoon, it was going to be difficult for anybody to stop Oxford’s chase for another title (April 20, 2015, Page 6)

The Chargers will try to win their third straight state crown Saturday in Jackson and have the numbers to make them the favorite.

Chargers shut out Senatobia in 9th grade game

Led by a defensive unit that has only allowed one touchdown all season, the Oxford Chargers’ ninth-grade football team defeated Senatobia 28-0 Tuesday night. The 4-0 Chargers, who have outscored their opponents 145-6, were praised by coach Jason Russell for their play on defense. “We were lights out and we really had to play hard against a good, athletic Senatobia team.” Jack Abraham led the Chargers on offense as he passed for two of the four touchdowns scored. Abraham finished the game 11-for-16 for 171 yards, while Kenzie Phillips scored twice on runs of 2 and 56 yards. Oxford finished with 302 yards of total offense and scored a touchdown in each quarter. The Chargers will return to action Monday against Center Hill. (September 12, 2012, Page 7)
