Water Valley football

Area teams gear up for Week 4 opponents

There’s no time like the present.

With that in mind, both Oxford and Lafayette almost immediately moved past last week’s showdown and turned their sights on their Week 4 opponents. (more…) (September 7, 2012, Page 6A)

    Blue Devils preparing for Trojan invasion

    Last week’s victory at Calhoun City was a big one for the Water Valley Blue Devils as they ended a brief skid against the Wildcats.

    Things won’t get any easier Friday when the Blue Devils (3-0 overall) host another regional rival in the Bruce Trojans (3-0).

    In their first three games of the season against Kennedy, Vardaman and Coffeeville, the Trojans have flexed their muscles by out-scoring their opponents 136-20. (September 6, 2012, Page 9)

      Oxford defense earns Player of the Week nod

      Oxford’s defenders must have felt hot following the Chargers’ 19-0 win over Lafayette in the annual Crosstown Classic. In a game that was dominated by the Chargers from start to finish, the OHS defense shined the brightest in a victory that not only ended a six-game losing streak to the Commodores, but also ended Lafayette’s 34-game winning streak.

      It was an effort that won’t be forgotten by anyone associated with OHS for a long time. It was an effort — by all 11 starters and numerous backups — that garnered the unit this week’s Player of the Week honors.

      Oxford defensive coordinator Steve Herring was beyond pleased with the effort his players gave in the victory and said hustling was the key to it all. (September 4, 2012, Page 8)

        Blue Devils grow in win over CCHS

        CALHOUN CITY — The Water Valley Blue Devils grew considerably as a team in their latest game with the Calhoun City Wildcats on Friday night. Instead of losing another heartbreaker to CCHS like Water Valley has the past two years, the Blue Devils defeated the Wildcats 38-21 on the road. The victory not only improved WVHS to 3-0 on the year, but it showed the rest of Class 3A — and head coach Brad Embry — that the program has taken another step toward building a championship team and program. (September 3, 2012, Page 3B)

          Blue Devils face test from CCHS Wildcats

          Asked to talk about Calhoun City, Water Valley head football coach Brad Embry didn’t hide his respect for the Wildcats.

          “It’s Calhoun City,” he said. “If you ask somebody about small schools in Mississippi, some of the tradition-rich schools, Calhoun City’s name is definitely going to come up. They’re athletic, fast, well coached and every year they’re going to be right there when it comes to playoff time, playing for North Half or in Jackson.” (August 30, 2012, Page 8)

            Brown makes all the grabs to earn Player of Week honor

            Football is not supposed to look this easy for Oxford’s Nick Brown. After spending the bulk of his high school career playing for hoops coach Drew Tyler, the 5-foot-10, 155-pound Brown decided to play football this past spring. From the first day he hit the field, wide receivers coach Chris Cutcliffe was impressed by his latest recruit. (August 28, 2012, Page 6)

              Railroad Trophy remains stationed in Water Valley

              COFFEEVILLE — The Water Valley Blue Devils left little doubt who was the better squad in the Railroad Trophy Rivalry Game Friday at Coffeeville.

              The visitors in blue and white found the end zone three unanswered times to open the 49-13 victory and never allowed the Pirates to get within 14 points. (August 27, 2012, Page 1B)

                Competitive games on tap for Week 2

                Week 2 doesn’t get any easier for the area’s football teams tonight.

                Lafayette will look to build on its close victory over Class 6A Tupelo with a home game against Greenwood, while Oxford hopes to carry momentum over from its narrow victory over Grenada with a home matchup against the always athletic Charleston Tigers.

                  Chargers host speedy CHS Tigers Friday

                  Oxford head football coach Johnny Hill hasn’t taught in a classroom in a few years but he’s still good about giving out grades when they have been earned. The Chargers’ first test of the year came last Friday night at home against Grenada and Hill said he gave his team a B-plus for execution and an A-plus for effort after watching the 28-22 victory in film study. (August 23, 2012, Page 6)

                    Railroad Trophy Rivalry pulling into the station

                    In 2009, the Water Valley Blue Devils opened their football season with a disappointing 34-25 loss to Coffeeville in the annual Railroad Trophy Rivalry game.
                    And even though Water Valley has claimed lopsided 28-0 and 63-0 victories in subsequent years, the Blue Devils still talk about their last loss to the Pirates. (August 23, 2012, Page 6)
