Oxford’s Hill to retire at end of 2015 season

The 2015 season will be the last for one of the most recognizable faces in Oxford High sports. Johnny Hill is stepping down as the Chargers’ football coach in December, he said Wednesday. Hill, who has spent 22 of his near four decades of coaching at Oxford over two different stints, will be with the school system for the fall semester of the 2015-16 school year before officially retiring at Christmas. (January 29, 2015, Page 6A)

    Mavericks rally to end Oxford’s season

    MADISON – For the second straight year, Oxford’s postseason stay was a short one.

      Oxford aiming for deeper 5A postseason run

      The Oxford boys’ soccer team has been itching to get back to this point. Now the goal for the Chargers is to hang around a little while. Oxford is back in the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs after sharing the Division 2-5A regular-season championship with Saltillo. The Chargers lost the coin clip to determine which team would be the division’s top seed, meaning Oxford will open the postseason on the road against Germantown on Tuesday at 7 p.m. (January 26, 2015, Page 6)

The match will begin at 5:30 p.m. (January 26, 2015, Page 6, 7)

          Chargers run past West Point for first division win

          Oxford’s best players stayed on the floor, allowing the Chargers to get back to the style of play to which they’re accustomed. They washed a bad taste out of their collective mouth as a result. Senior forward Shelby McEwen led four double-figure scorers for Oxford as the Chargers routed the Green Wave, 87-62, Tuesday night at the Oxford High gym to pick up their first Division 2-5A victory of the season. The win came four days after Oxford (16-3, 1-1 Division 2-5A) lost its division opener at New Hope, the Chargers’ first setback to a team from Mississippi. (January 21, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

            Chargers rout West Point for share of 2-5A title

            Not even Oxford’s most productive night of offense could separate the top two teams in Division 2-5A boys soccer standings. The Chargers wrapped up division play with little resistance Friday, finding the back of the net early and often in a 14-0 rout of West Point on Senior Night at Bobby Holcomb Field to secure a share of the division title with Saltillo. (January 18, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

                  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 boys win pair on final day

                    The Oxford boys soccer team’s patience was tested Saturday. The Chargers were less than 24 hours removed from a 2-2 draw against Olive Branch in their opening match of the Oxford Showcase and found themselves in a scoreless deadlock deep into the second half despite numerous scoring chances against New Hope at FNC Park. But Oxford finally broke through on Tristan Orman’s penalty kick for the match’s only goal, giving the Chargers their first win of the tournament. The Lady Chargers went 1-1-1 over the weekend. (December 21, 2014, Page 4B)
