Oxford football

Oxford cages O’Bannon, CHS Tigers

The Oxford Chargers’ 24-14 win over Charleston on Friday accomplished more than just revenge.

The win exorcised demons that had been with the Chargers for over a year.

Prior to the game at Bobby Holcomb Field, it was obvious the players were focused on gaining atonement from last year’s 31-13 loss and it showed on the field. (August 30, 2010, Page 1B)

        Chargers looking for revenge against Tigers

        What keeps Terry Johnson awake at night isn’t the upcoming chemistry exam. It’s not coach Johnny Hill’s rigorous workout regiment and it’s definitely not the Boogy Man.

        What gives Oxford’s 6-foot-4, 270-pound defensive end the shivers to think about is last year’s loss at Charleston.

        Sophomore running back Percy O’Bannon and senior quarterback Willie Bradford carved up Oxford’s defense, combining for five touchdowns en route to a 31-13 victory that night. (August 26, 2010, Page 6)

          Fast start leads to one-sided win for OHS

          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)

              Norris leads Chargers’ offensive line

              Avery Norris may be the nicest guy in the world walking the halls of Oxford High during the week, but when the lights turn on Friday nights, he becomes a different person altogether.

              The 5-foot-10, 210-pound senior is the Chargers’ center, the leader of the offensive line, an additional coach on the field each game and the designated fireplug, or enforcer if you will, of the team. His role as the guy that will lay his body on the line is as important as his ability to snap the ball to quarterback Guy Cameron Billups each play. In short, without Norris, the Chargers’ offense can not function like it’s supposed. (August 20, 2010, Page 6A)

                Oxford hosts Grenada in season opener

                Speed is something the Oxford Chargers are going to have to deal with when they host Grenada Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field.

                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)

                  Billups, Chargers’ O shines in jamboree

                  This year’s official Oxford High football T-shirt has the saying ‘the power of the stache’ printed on the back in honor of coach Johnny Hill’s famous facial hair.

                  But after the way senior quarterback Guy Cameron Billups played in Oxford’s jamboree game against Ripley Saturday morning, the booster club may want to print up a new shirt entitled ‘fear the experience of the blonde’ in honor of Billups’ golden locks and his ability to move the offense. (August 16, 2010, Page 6)
