Want to know how far of a hike it is from Oxford High School to Bramlett Elementary School? Just ask any number of Chargers who because of either turning the ball over or being charged with a costly penalty during last week’s loss at New Hope, had the honor of running up Bramlett Hill in across the street from the high school following the conclusion of Wednesday’s practice.
The purpose? To alleviate the mental mistakes that cost Oxford a win in its first region game last week when they host another Region 1-5A team, Clarksdale, on Friday at 7 p.m. (September 30, 2010, Page 8)
