Dean, Chargers wear down Tigers

CHARLESTON — The Oxford Chargers were an opportunistic team on Friday evening.

One week after turning the ball over five times, the Chargers played a much cleaner game and were able to capitalize on several Charleston Tigers miscues en route to a 38-25 road victory. (more…) (August 29, 2011, Page 1B)

OHS Chargers bracing for speed of CHS Tigers

The Oxford Chargers won’t be fooled by Charleston’s 0-1 start to the 2011 season.

Despite dropping their season opener against Southaven 27-13 last Friday, Oxford coach Johnny Hill said this year’s Tigers squad is not to be overlooked. (August 25, 2011, Page 6)

Adamson, Elliott still working to be No. 1 QB

Oxford’s quarterbacking tandem of Parker Adamson and William Elliott had its ups and downs this weekend at the O-Zone Classic 7-on-7 tournament held at FNC Park.

During the Chargers’ two games on Saturday, Elliott earned the bulk of the work and completed 16 of 27 passes for five touchdowns while also throwing one interception in six possessions.

Adamson, meanwhile, completed five of 13 passes for one touchdown in two possessions in Oxford’s first game against Saltillo. (July 11, 2011, Page 6)

Wave crash Oxford’s 5A playoff hopes

One of the most successful seasons on the gridiron the past few seasons for the Oxford Chargers ended with a disappointing 27-12 loss to the West Point Green Wave in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field.

A good, physical gameplan helped lifted the Green Wave (11-1 overall) into the 5A North Half title game. (November 22, 2010, Page 6B)

Chargers top Tigers in region rivalry game

Longtime coaching rivals Johnny Hill of Oxford and Anthony Jenkins of Hernando played another chess match Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field and, in the end, it was Hill’s Chargers that made more right moves in a 31-19 victory.

Oxford scored two touchdowns in the first quarter to jump ahead to stay and added two more scores in the final period to turn back a rally by the visiting Tigers in the game that carried postseason playoff implications. The Chargers evened their Region 1-5A record at 2-2 and improved to 5-3 overall; Hernando dropped to 4-4 and 2-2. (October 18, 2010, Page 1B)

OHS coach Johnny Hill felt his Chargers played “pretty well” against the Wildcats (3-3, 1-1). (October 4, 2010, Page 4B)

Crosstown Classic special for everyone

The Crosstown Classic: What a great week for the players, fans and coaches of both schools. It’s a time for everyone who has ever attended Lafayette or Oxford to reflect on their memories of this most important game of the year.

I can certainly remember my senior year of football at Lafayette in 1977 and all the emotions that the week entailed leading up to the game. I remember a very descriptive letter supposedly from the Oxford players strategically placed on the wall in the field house that detailed how they were going to have a lot more fun on Friday night than we were. I must say that even at 17, I was less intimidated than amused. I can remember smiling, wondering which coach was responsible for engineering such a motivating tactic. (September 2, 2010, Page 6)
