        High School Spotlight: Harmon brimming with FBS potential

            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. The Chargers had to accelerate their preparation for Lewisburg after this week’s game between the Region 1-5A foes was moved to tonight because of the possibility of inclement weather in Olive Branch on Friday. Kickoff from Lewisburg High School is still set for 7 p.m. (October 9, 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)
