Oxford K William Wilkinson: 5’11” 145 lbs sophomore for Oxford. This season, Wilkinson has accumulated 1358 KO yards with 27 KOs. He has made 17/18 PATs and is 3/4 on FG. Wilkinson is a player to watch as he is also a key factor in upping the score for the Chargers.

Clinton RB Jakobe Calvin: 6’0” 220 lbs junior for Clinton. This season, Calvin has 76 carries for 443 yards. He leads the Arrows in rushing yards while having 5.8 YPC. Calvin is definitely a player to watch this Friday against the Chargers.

Oxford LB Keegan Wilfawn: 5’11” 220 lbs senior for Oxford. This season, with 6 games played, Wilfawn has accumulated a total of 32 solo tackles and 41 total tackles. Wilfawn has always been a player to look out for on the field for the Chargers, but for this game Wilfawn will definitely be one to watch.

Clinton QB Jordyn Battee: 6’0” 175 lbs junior for Clinton. This season, Battee is 42/84 in passing COMP/ATT. Battee has a ratio of 7/7 TD/INT. On the other hand, Battee has 74 carries with a total of 310 yards. Battee averages 4.2 YPC and is one to watch against the Chargers.

X Factor: 

Oxford’s Linebackers: Oxford has a great group of linebackers, but Clinton loves to run the ball. Previously, Clinton hasn’t had a lot of luck throwing the ball, but running is their option. Clinton has a good group of players who run the ball and the X Factor for this game will be Oxford’s linebackers tackling the run game.


Coming off of a comeback win against the Germantown Mavericks, Oxford kept their momentum last week. Coming back 21-0 is not easy, and to have plays that they feel comfortable getting yards with is amazing. If Oxford can do a good job stopping the Clinton run game, this game will go to Oxford, 31-13.
