    OHS freshmen down ‘Dores in crosstown game

    It didn’t count, but it was still Oxford against Lafayette. An exhibition game between the school’s upcoming freshman football teams was held Monday night at Bobby Holcomb to cap spring drills for both squads as part of a three-team scrimmage with Saltillo. Both teams whet their respective appetites with victories over the Tigers before squaring off in the main event of the night. Oxford won 14-8 in a game that consisted of two halves of unspecified time rather than the regular four-quarter format. (May 5, 2015, Page 6)

            ALL-AREA FOOTBALL: Phillips hits stride to run up record season for Chargers

            Oxford coach Johnny Hill isn’t all that surprised by what his running back was able to do on the football field this season. Not after seeing what he did when he wasn’t necessarily the go-to guy. No tailback in school history has run for more yards than Kenzie Phillips did this fall. In just his second season as a full-time starter, the junior set a record with 1,737 yards. His 29 rushing touchdowns are also a new single-season record, breaking his own mark of 24 set just last season. His performance makes him this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. Phillips is the third straight Charger to earn the distinction. (December 23, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

                Oxford’s quest for first state championship falls short

                STARKVILLE — Oxford didn’t finish the drill. A rallying cry that was born out of the championship disappointment of a season ago carried Oxford all year. The Chargers spent all of August, September, October and November earning its way back to the final day of the season in December to give themselves another shot at the MHSAA Class 5A state title. (December 7, 2014, Page 1B)

                  Oxford, Laurel ready to air it out for title

                  Fans attending the MHSAA Class 5A state championship game better find a comfortable seat inside Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium. They could be there a while.

                    CLINTON — Flanked by some of his coaching peers and staring out into a sea of officials, administrators and media members statewide, Oxford coach Johnny Hill let everyone in on what may be the worst kept secret in Mississippi high school football.
