      Phillips, defense key Oxford in Crosstown Classic

      It’s not often that sophomores make much of an impact in the annual Crosstown Classic. Then again, Oxford running back Kenzie Phillips isn’t your run-of-the-mill sophomore.

      The 5-foot-10, 190-pound whirling dervish ran through and around the Lafayette Commodores to the tune of 208 yards on 18 carries Friday night at William L. Buford Stadium. (September 16, 2013, Page 1B)

        Oxford D shows its mettle in shutout

        Piling up 363 total yards and getting a monster game from sophomore running back Kenzie Phillips (208 yards and three touchdowns), Oxford’s offense continued doing what it’s been doing all year in the Chargers’ 30-0 win over rival Lafayette in the annual Crosstown Classic Friday night.

        With Phillips and senior Jarius Barnes making up a formidable rushing attack, a rising sophomore at quarterback in Jack Abraham and one of the best receivers around in Ole Miss commit D.K. Metcalf, the Chargers’ offense has put up at least 30 points in every game it’s played so far.

        But just in case anybody forgot about the Oxford defense, the unit proved it’s alive and well with its most dominant performance to this point against the Commodores. (September 16, 2013, Page 4B)

              PREP SPOTLIGHT: Liggins tackling leadership, new defensive role

              After losing two standouts to the state community college ranks following the 2012 season, Oxford defensive line coach Matt Conner knew he could depend on Darrius Liggins to step up. What Conner didn’t know about the already steady Liggins was how much he would end up helping the younger members of the line while, at the same time, learning a new role on the line. (September 11, 2013, Page 6)
