Johnny Hill’s desire to make future football schedules tougher on the gridiron is reflected in the 2013 edition. The Oxford Chargers open the year against Jackson Prep on Aug. 23 in a game that could be played at Ole Miss’ Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. If not, the Chargers would host the Patriots at Bobby Holcomb Field. (more…) (December 7, 2012, Page 7A)
The fifth-ranked Oxford Chargers were not caught looking ahead Friday night as they turned in a solid effort en route to a 33-7 homecoming victory against Saltillo in Region 1-5A action at Bobby Holcomb Field. (more…) (October 22, 2012, Page 1B)
With the end of the regular season rapidly approaching, all three area football teams are jostling for region and post-season positioning tonight.
Water Valley probably headlines the area’s action with a road test at Aberdeen, while Oxford (8-0 overall, 4-0 Region 1-5A) hosts 1-5A foe Saltillo and Lafayette welcomes 2-4A rival Senatobia to William L. Buford Stadium.
All three games are set for 7 p.m. kickoffs. Oxford’s game can be heard on 95.5 FM, while Water Valley’s will be broadcast on 105.5 FM and Lafayette’s on 93.7 FM. (October 19, 2012, Page 6A)
Hernando’s goal of shortening the game with its Wing T offense only accomplished fewer shots on ball carriers in the seventh-ranked Chargers’ 31-0 win Friday night at Tiger Stadium. (more…) (October 15, 2012, Page 3B)
Oxford’s success on defense this season can be attributed to the play of many standout players. Against Lake Cormorant last Friday specifically, senior Jarquis Adams recorded nine tackles, three tackles for a loss and one sack in the Chargers’ 26-0 win. It was the second time this year the ninth-ranked Chargers have earned a shutout and absolutely stoned an opponent from a yardage standpoint. (Lake Cormorant had negative 11 yards at the half). Adams’ play earned him this week’s Player of the Week honors, his first this season. (October 9, 2012, Page 6)
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)
Oxford is coming off of a convincing 40-27 victory in which reserves and the ninth-grade squad played the final few minutes at Center Hill, while the visiting New Hope Trojans travel to Oxford looking to bounce back after a disappointing 42-22 loss to Saltillo. (more…) (September 27, 2012, Page 6)
While Oxford didn’t play a mistake-free game, the visitors did make enough plays in all three phases to earn the win. (September 24, 2012, Page 3B)
