High School Spotlight: Harmon brimming with FBS potential

He’s 6-foot-5 and pushing 230 pounds. His arms are long, his first step’s a blur when he wants it to be, and once he gets going, he’s got speed that could make some running backs blush. Korbin Harmon has all the physical tools, and college coaches have taken notice. (October 15, 2014, Page 1B)

Chargers travel to Lewisburg on short week.

Oxford usually spends its Thursdays going through a walk-through on offense, defense and special teams, fine-tuning the game plan for its next opponent. Not this week.

Kickoff from Lewisburg High School is still set for 7 p.m. (October 9, 2014, Page 6A)

The important part of the schedule begins for a pair of area high school football teams tonight while it continues for another. Lafayette will travel to Ripley for its Region 2-4A opener while Water Valley will enterain Charleston to kick off Region 2-3A play. Oxford started its Region 1-5A slate with a 43-22 win at West Point a week ago and will try to make it two in a row against Saltillo at Bobby Holcomb Field. (October 3, 2014, Page 6A)

Chargers brace for Saltillo’s ground game

Oxford is all too familiar with Diamante Pounds. Saltillo’s senior running back has been wearing down Region 1-5A defenses for a season and a half. He finished with more than 2,000 yards last year in his first season with the Tigers after transferring from Shannon and is on pace for the same kind of production this season in Saltillo’s zone-read offense. There won’t be any surprises for the Chargers when Saltillo makes the trip to Bobby Holcomb Field on Friday for a matchup of region unbeatens. (October 2, 2014, Page 6A)
