Oxford’s quest for first state championship falls short

STARKVILLE — Oxford didn’t finish the drill. A rallying cry that was born out of the championship disappointment of a season ago carried Oxford all year.

Fans attending the MHSAA Class 5A state championship game better find a comfortable seat inside Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium. They could be there a while.

Now, the Oxford High Chargers will be going to Starkville and MSU’s Davis-Wade Stadium to try to win their first-ever gold football signifying a state championship. We applaud the decision to take the championship games to sites other than Jackson and wish the Chargers well in their game Saturday night. (December 4, 2014, Page 4A)

CLINTON — Flanked by some of his coaching peers and staring out into a sea of officials, administrators and media members statewide, Oxford coach Johnny Hill let everyone in on what may be the worst kept secret in Mississippi high school football. Now that they’re back in the MHSAA Class 5A state championship game, the Chargers don’t want a repeat of what happened last year. (December 2, 2014, Page 6)
