Coach Johnny Hill wanted to see his Oxford Chargers get off to a good start in their season opener with Grenada. Hill got exactly what he wanted Friday night as Oxford scored on its second play from scrimmage, its first two possessions and five of its first six possessions en route to a 41-12 victory over Class 6A Grenada at Bobby Holcomb Field.
Senior quarterback Guy Cameron Billups sparked the quick start, completing his first pass for a touchdown and going 6-for-10 for 148 yards and three scores as OHS raced out to a 28-0 lead in the opening quarter. Billups, who hooked up with six different receivers in the game, finished 10-for-19 for 213 yards.
The Oxford defense, meanwhile, shut down the potentially explosive visitors in the first half and for all but two possessions the entire night. Grenada managed just two first downs and 37 total yards in the first half; for the game, GHS gained 10 yards on the ground and 141 overall. (August 23, 2010, Page 1B)

While first games are always the hardest for coaches to scout for, the one thing that has been consistent in preparing for Grenada is the amount of speed it has at the skill positions.
Leading the way from a skill standpoint is Cedric Tillman, who was second in Class 6A in the 100 meter dash this past spring. The 5-foot-11, 187-pound senior leads a talented backfield for coach Lamar Pitcock, who turned was able to improve Grenada from a 1-10 team in 2008 to a 5-6 team last year. (August 19, 2010, Page 6)
