Oxford is set to take on Oak Grove for the 6A football state championship and you can catch all of the game action LIVE.
From the preview of this matchup:
The rematch we’ve all been waiting for, and expecting since December of last year. They’re back. The glorious comeback by the Chargers and painful collapse by Oak Grove is all in the past. Will Oxford win their 26th game in a row and go back-to-back in the state’s highest classification or will Oak Grove finally get over that hump they’ve stumbled on since 2013?
Like always and probably will be for a while to come, the key to Oak Grove’s success will rely on the man behind center. Kabe Barnett will be the third starting quarterback in three years come in this game come Friday. This time, they had a lot more balance on offense, a potent balance. While the defense has surrendered points, they’ve made the plays when they needed to in order to play in yet another state title game. However, Drew Causey said it best Monday, there is a reason why their opponent has won 25 games in a row.
This season’s Oxford Chargers has shown over and over again why Chris Cutcliffe and his staff have to be considered the best Mississippi has to offer. Down 10 seniors from last year’s defense, a dandy dozen athlete and a quarterback who’s playing for Navy, the Chargers have continued to find a way and control what they can control. They’ve trailed by double digits numerous times, they’ve had a carousel of players take the field and find so many unorthodox ways of getting back into each game. They just don’t quit, as also evidenced by last year’s stunning state title. Last year is last year. What is in store this time around?
