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)

Oxford avoids letdown, tops Senatobia by 20

BLOG: SENATOBIA— Coming off of a big win last week, some Chargers were worried Friday night’s game at Senatobia could end up being a “trap game” for Oxford.

That wasn’t the case, however, as the visiting Chargers jumped out to a 17-point lead and held on to defeat the Warriors 34-14.

Chargers have moved past Classic, focused on Warriors

Last Thursday’s win was a big one for Oxford, but the Chargers have already moved past their first Crosstown Classic victory in seven seasons.

During the high school football season there’s no time to dwell on losses, and there’s certainly no time to pat yourself on the back for victories. (September 6, 2012, Page 8)

Isaac could impact Crosstown Classic

The annual Crosstown Classic meeting between Lafayette and Oxford at Oxford’s Bobby Holcomb Field is still on for Thursday according to OHS Athletics Director Johnny Hill. While bad weather associated with Tropical Storm Isaac could still impact the contest, which is scheduled to be broadcast live by Fox Sports South and sponsored by C Spire Wireless as part of the Bright Lights: Football series,  Hill said after talking with TV officials this morning that the plan was still to play the game if possible.

Competitive games on tap for Week 2

Week 2 doesn’t get any easier for the area’s football teams tonight.

Lafayette will look to build on its close victory over Class 6A Tupelo with a home game against Greenwood, while Oxford hopes to carry momentum over from its narrow victory over Grenada with a home matchup against the always athletic Charleston Tigers. (more…) (August 24, 2012, Page 6A)

QB Adamson leads Oxford past Grenada

Oxford High School quarterback Parker Adamson didn’t get off to an ideal start in Friday’s season opener against Grenada at Bobby Holcomb Field, throwing interceptions on two of his team’s first three possessions with one of them getting returned for a touchdown.

Adamson and his teammates didn’t let the slow start and 12-0 first-period deficit shake them, however, as they rallied to post a 28-22 victory in the battle of Charger lineups. Adamson finished the night passing for 205 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help his team gain a measure of revenge for last year’s loss at Grenada. (August 20, 2012, Page 1B)

Friday Night’s Lights: 2012 season opens tonight

It’s hard to believe but actual football will be played today across the state of Mississippi.
Locally, Lafayette, Oxford and Water Valley will get their seasons underway with big-time aspirations in mind. (August 17, 2012, Page 6A)

Oxford on the mark vs. Raiders

Jamborees are typically meant for teams to see what they have and to then work out the kinks without the pressure of mistakes showing up in the win-loss column.

Friday, the Oxford Chargers opened the Oxford-Ole Miss jamboree at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in impressive fashion with a 17-0 victory over Shannon. (August 13, 2012, Page 7)

Former Chargers to lead boys track, cross-country teams

Two of Oxford High’s most decorated track athletes will be leading two of the most successful programs at OHS in the coming year. Chris Patton and Chris Bush were both approved by the school board Monday to lead the cross country and boys track programs respectively. Patton, who has been an assistant to former OHS coach Scott Kendricks since 2008, will assist Bush on the track and continue to work with sprinters and jumpers as he has in the past. Bush will assist Patton with the cross country teams.

Oxford Athletics Director Johnny Hill recommended the duo after Kendricks decided first, to become just the cross country coach, and then leave high school coaching altogether when he decided to coach at Ole Miss earlier this month. (July 26, 2012, Page 6)
