Johnny Hill

Young Chargers step up in Round 1

Oxford’s underclassmen answered when called upon Friday. For the majority of the season the Chargers leaned heavily on upperclassmen to compile 10 straight wins. (more…) (November 12, 2012, Page 4B)

Special teams likely to impact OHS-Provine

It’s not often a coach will mention special teams when asked for general thoughts on an upcoming opponent.

Wednesday, Oxford head coach Johnny Hill did just that when asked to talk about the Chargers’ first-round opponent Provine. (more…) (November 8, 2012, Page 8)

Chargers sock Saltillo on Senior Night

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)

Area squads set to face region rivals

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)

D shines again for undefeated OHS

HERNANDO — It’s hard not to believe that members of the Hernando Tigers offense weren’t a little sore Saturday morning after tangling with Oxford’s defensive unit.

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 LB Adams earns POW honor

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)

Defense seals win for Chargers

A win’s a win no matter how pretty it is.

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)

Hill, Chargers look to keep momentum going

Friday night’s game at Bobby Holcomb Field will feature two Region 1-5A competitors trending in different directions.

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)

Chargers open ‘second season’ 1-0

OLIVE BRANCH — The Chargers were all smiles Friday night following their 40-27 victory at Region 1-5A foe Center Hill.

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)

Oxford avoids trap, tops Warriors

SENATOBIA— Coming off of an emotional win last week, it would have been understandable if the Oxford Chargers played flat Friday at Senatobia.

With the exception of a few hiccups on defense, that wasn’t the case as the Chargers never trailed during their 34-14 victory over the Warriors. (September 10, 2012, Page 3B)
