Area teams open 2013 seasons tonight

Tough pre-regional schedules are the rule rather than the exception for Oxford, Lafayette and Water Valley high schools as they open their 2013 slates tonight. Oxford hosts defending MAIS champion Jackson Prep, Class 4A Lafayette travels to Class 6A Tupelo and Class 3A Water Valley plays at defending Region 2-4A champion New Albany. All three games have 7 p.m. kickoffs and can be heard on local radio stations. (August 23, 2013, Page 7A)

Chargers kick off with defending MAIS champs

No one can ever accuse OHS coach Johnny Hill and the Chargers of taking it easy in pre-region games. This season, Oxford opens with defending MAIS champ Jackson Prep and follows with MHSAA Class 5A champion Starkville, a very athletic Cleveland East Side team and Class 4A power and crosstown rival Lafayette. This week, all of the attention turns to getting better against a deep and talented Prep team in a public school-private school matchup at Bobby Holcomb Field. (August 22, 2013, Page 6)

Abraham leads OHS in spring debut

Johnny Hill liked what he saw from Jack Abraham in his first live action with the varsity Thursday.

OHS to open ‘13 against Jackson Prep

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)
