Oxford LB Adams earns POW honor

Oxford’s success on defense this season can be attributed to the play of many standout players. Against Lake Cormorant last Friday specifically, senior Jarquis Adams recorded nine tackles, three tackles for a loss and one sack in the Chargers’ 26-0 win. It was the second time this year the ninth-ranked Chargers have earned a shutout and absolutely stoned an opponent from a yardage standpoint. (Lake Cormorant had negative 11 yards at the half). Adams’ play earned him this week’s Player of the Week honors, his first this season. (October 9, 2012, Page 6)

    Defensive effort keeps Oxford perfect

    There was a point midway through the first half of Friday night’s Region 1-5A game between No. 9 Oxford and Lake Cormorant at Bobby Holcomb Field where LCHS head coach Nick Nester threw up his hands in confusion, disgust or both. When an opposing team holds another to negative yards on offense in a half, it can make even the most even tempered of coaches feel desperate and frustrated all at the same time.

        Chargers’ Hill wants better effort

        Oxford’s ninth-ranked Chargers may have held on to defeat New Hope last week and remain unbeaten on the year, but it didn’t feel like much of a win to coach Johnny Hill, who wasn’t pleased with the execution and the effort he got against the always pesky Trojans. (October 4, 2012, Page 8)

            Return of the Mack: LHS QB earns another POW honor

            It’s beginning to become a bit of a broken record, but Lafayette is positively OK with that.

            During Friday’s 28-13 win at Lewisburg, LHS quarterback Brandon Mack did what has become expected of the super senior, rushing for 126 yards, passing for 115 and accounting for three touchdowns, all the while playing full-time on defense and special teams. (October 2, 2012, Page 7)

              Defense seals win for Chargers

              A win’s a win no matter how pretty it is.

              That was Oxford coach Johnny Hill’s thoughts after his team defeated Region 1-5A rival New Hope 29-17 at Bobby Holcomb Field on Friday night.

              Plagued by missed assignments and poor execution most of the night, the Chargers (6-0 overall, 2-0 in region play) put some distance between themselves and the Trojans thanks to big plays on defense late in the game. (more…) (October 1, 2012, Page 3B)

                Hill, Chargers look to keep momentum going

                Friday night’s game at Bobby Holcomb Field will feature two Region 1-5A competitors trending in different directions.

                Oxford is coming off of a convincing 40-27 victory in which reserves and the ninth-grade squad played the final few minutes at Center Hill, while the visiting New Hope Trojans travel to Oxford looking to bounce back after a disappointing 42-22 loss to Saltillo.

                    Bailey tackles Jaguars to earn POW honor

                    The Blue Devils took care of business Friday, routing the visiting J.Z. George Jaguars 61-6.

                    Leading Water Valley’s defensive unit was senior Q. Bailey, who racked up 15 tackles in the first half before being pulled for reserves.

                    Bailey’s 15 tackles in just two quarters was a rare feat that veteran defensive coordinator Richard Russo has never seen. (September 25, 2012, Page 7)
